Fuel Pump will not come on

I have changed the fuse for the fuel pump still does not work: I bought a new fuel pump still does not work. I took the fuel pump out and jumped it from the battery (worked) put it back in the tank still does not work. I tested hot wires at the pump and they tested positive. I can not get the fuel pump to kick on. I am lost!

I had the same problem. Check the splice in the wiring harness under the relay box. Where it was coroaded on mine was visible. Look it over, may have to cut the tape. There is 3 red and white wires that splice into one wire,( same color). I fixed mine with a peice of wire and 2 wire nuts..Good Luck...Hope this helps.

Make sure all lines are light when turning engine over.While turning engine over loosen the a line closes to pump or the fuel filter.You should get some fuel.Then continue on all lines working farther away.

I have a new battery. i have changed the fuel


I'm guessing you checked the fuses already, so if you have spark at the plugs, look for a vacuum leak. If you still suspect the fuel pump, do a fuel pressure test.
