Question about 1990 Dodge Dakota
First check the fuse box to see if there are fuses for the fuel pump, and also check to see if there is a fuel pump relay...if fuses are good..then have someone turn the key on while you listen to the fuel pump relay...it should click when the key is turned.....if this works then there may be the possibility that the fuel; pump is defective...you can try hitting the fuel tank with a rubber mallet and see if the fuel pump starts working again...a lot of dodge fuel pumps will become intermittant(I have had several dodge p/u trucks do this) and if you pound on the fuel tank ...sometimes they will start working again....if it starts working, then you will need to change it..because it will only happen again...and probably at the most inconvenient time...to change the fuel pump you will either need too remove the bed of the truck(which I find is the easiest way) to get to the top of the fuel tank. Or , you can remove the straps that hold the fuel tank up...the only problem with this is if the tank is full then it is going to weigh somewhere around 250 pounds...best way is to remove the bed....on top of the fuel tank is the "fuel deliver module"...as dodge refers to it as...there is a large "C" clip that holds the unit in the tank...you need to remove the clip with a flat blade screwdriver and then the module will pop up...be careful when removing the unit as there is a float assembly that may be damaged when you remove the assembly.....sometimes you may be able to obtain just the fuel pump(depending on model) and sometimes you may have to replace the whole delivery module, which is rather expensive...then reassemble is revers order
