Question about 1995 Dodge Ram
1995 Dodge Ram 1500 2WD 5.9L. I Thought I was having fuel pump problems,everything checks out. Dropped the tank,did some electrical tests, hooked the fuel pump back up clicked it over, it pumped out gas and then nothing, Unhooked and rehooked up the negative cable and it did the same thing. tried that again and it seemed okay. Lasted for a couple of days and now nothing.The negative cable dis/reconnect doesn't work anymore. Everything else still checks out. Code 12 but that could be because the battery got disconnected.
Code 12 doesn't correlate, but Code 1282 may provide some insight. Code 1282 is "The fuel pump relay circuit seems to be having a problem", which would explain the disconnect/reconnect trick that sporadically works. Have the relay circuit looked at.

Have you ever replaced the Catalytic converter.....It will simulate the exact same problems.....

There is a fuel shutoff siloniod that is a giant electro magnet, it wears out after awhile, they are really expensive to replace if you go through Dodge or Napa, but if you look on ebay for a fuel shutoff valve you should be able to find one for pretty cheap.

This may help a little, the comp won't let fuel pump run for long w/o engine running. Like 2 seconds or less. To check fuel ya have to remove engine cover, hook up guage to test port on driver's side fuel rail then start engine. The best thing I did was get on ebay and find a FACTORY service manual, not Haynes or Clymer, they're not model specific enough.

Thanks for trying. I have a Haynes Repair Manual. There is no code 1282 it is a 12. The truck had sat for about a month. I put it on the battery charger, I'll be darned the POS started. Not wanting to take the risk, I didn't drive it. The next day it wouldn't start and still won't. The money factor is a real big deal.
