Question about 2005 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Hey Im back. I gave the Nissan Dealer your advise and I think it just went out the other ear. My Nissan Pathfinder stopped again with the fuel pump not pumping. They removed the tank and found the top of the fuel pump had melted. That's what they told me. They think it has something to do with not earthing or something. So they replaced the $880. pump and put an extra earth in somewhere. I don't trust these guys. They say their diagnostics tests don't show any faults. I feel im getting the run around. Should I go somewhere else. Roger 2005 Nissan Pathfinder. rogerjohn717

From what you have described, it very well could be the problem. They are calling the ground wire the earth ground. But they are trying to talk like an electrician. And they are not..... A car does not have a earth ground at all. It has a battery ground. But if the fuel pump lost the ground it would stop working. The next issue is, if they were telling the truth about the wire melting. That is a very bad thing. They should NOT just put a new ground on and call it good. There is a reason why the wire melted and needs to be resolved. Melting wire means lots of heat. And lots of heat in the fuel tank is very dangerous. The wiring is rated at 600 degrees. That means the wire got hotter than 600 degrees. And you don't want that in your fuel tank.

Check For fuel on the fuel rail with the engine stop. If there is fuel, then check for spark at one of the plugs or Kal pac area.

If all is well you have crank sensor problem.
Good luck

87 Nissan Pathfinder Fuel Pump

if you ran out of fuel it may have blown the fuel pump fuse. put gas in tank. replace fuel pump fuse and cycle the key on but not to the start position, you should hear a buzzing noise which is your fuel pump when the buzzing stops turn ignition off and do it again. repeat a bout 5-10 times and it should start after that.
