Hello...
Q: does a fuel pump run when it's out of the tank ?
A: YES it should run when out of the tank, and it should make a whirring sound when a complete circuit is formed, that means Power IN to the unit from the battery, and then Grounded back to the battery.

If it only clicks, then the pump is stuck/jammed, and you should be looking at getting a new pump.

Fuel injection Harley Davidson 02 Fatboy


System is self bleeding. You may have disturbed some debris that has gotten in the fuel injector/s. Try running some fuel injection cleaner through it and see what happens.

No longer hearing the "whirr" of the electric fuel pump


if this is a no start then the next step is to pull the gas tank and replace the fuel pump module, the fact you heard the pump in many cases means the pumps shaft bearings were worn out, they are pretty silent for the most part.

How to repair the fuel pump on my 02 FLSTFI Fatboy


normally if you dont hear the fuel pump when you first turn it on then it shouldnt start at all. sometimes if you know where the pump is you can turn on ignition and run switch while touching the pump, you will feel if it's working. if not, check fuses, may be just blown. if fuel pump is working but dont shut off when motor starts then its not getting enough gas, try changing fuel filter. as for the GUM Berrymans B12 seems to do the trick for me, get the fuel additive and follow directions on the can.
