There is really no way unless you can get access to the wires to pump on tank. try this, get under car at fuel tank. put hand on tank and have someone turn key to on not start. and if it is working you will feel a vibration in tank. you may have to do this a few times, because a fuel pump only comes on for a few seconds to pressurize fuel line. but while running its on constantly. check the fuse and relay for fuel pump first in fuse box. hope this steers you in the right way! have a good day !!

I have a kia sedona 2004 2.9 diesel, i punctured the fuel filler neck lost all fuel repaired it and managed to get me home but on way home em light lit wont start now unless i rapid pump primer help

Sounds like you have damaged the fuel tank mounted fuel pickup pump. The pump is cooled and lubricated by the fuel it is immersed in, so when you lost all the fuel you likely ruined the pump.

Gas gauge does not work correctly.

the sending unit is a variable resistor(potientiometer ) on the fuel pump
its probly bad it requiers a couple confirmation tests prier to dropping your gas tank and changing the pump but I got my money on that sending unit 97% of the time new fuel pump will fix it you coul change just the sending unit but you still have to pay almost as much and its the same job smartest thing too do is change the whole thing

Fuel filter replacement

I believe there is actually an access panel in front of the second row seat behind the drivers seat that you can access the top of the tank, fuel pump and possibly the fuel filter if it is in the tank. Lift up the carpeting and check.

Fuel Filter location on a Petrol 2004 Kia Carnival

The fuel filter is located in the fuel tank, pump removal is required to replace. There is an inspection cover behind the front seats on the floor to gain access to the pump. stupid idea. but whats not stupid about kia.
