Running sluggish and now will not start. I don't

Running sluggish and now will not start. I don't think it is getting any gas. Where is the fuel pump relay? And how can I tell if it is the relay or the pump?

I think you will find the FP relay under the hood in one of the two black power distribution boxes.

When you turn the ign key to run, you should hear the pump run for 3-5 seconds to prime the system, then stop. You might have someone lie down outside and see if they hear it.

Verify that relay and fuse for pump are good first, and then attaching a pressure gage to the fuel rail will confirm whether or not pump is working properly if at all.

Also, make sure that your battery is not the culprit before replacing the pump. Chrysler products are very sensitive to a flaky/dying battery.

My best guess with what you are saying is you did not "RUN" out of gas but actually had fuel still in your Tank. What happened was one of (3) things.. Your Fuel Filter is clogged (but it would have run sluggish or a hesitation prior to this happening. The 2 Most common problems that more than likely happened is either (A) Fuel Pump/Fuse for the Fuel Pump failed or (B) Crankshaft Sensor has failed.

First thing I would do is spray some ether in the air horn to see if it will fire. If not, you will have to do some alternate troubleshooting. (Please see my tip at .) If yes, then you have verified the problem is fuel. The next thing I would do is swap the fuel pump relay with the horn relay. See if that fixes it. If yes, you just need a relay. If not, next I would replace the filter. It's cheap and easy and worth a try. The pump is expensive and hard to replace, so rule everything else out first. The relay is usually in the engine compartment relay box. I think I can see it in the pick below. The filter is near fuel tank, mounted on frame rail in fuel line. Let me know if you get stuck or have questions.
