February 27, 2015, 11:34 AM
started about a year ago, only just once in a while.last few months it got worse,if i cycled the switch from off to run a few times,pump would eventually prime and start and ran perfect until i turn off truck.checked fuel pump fuse,its good,new fuel pump relay,new pcm relay,new ignition switch(electrical part),new starter solenoid on firewall.i removed fuel pump relay and put a jumper from pin 30(hot all times)to pin 87.this gives constant power to inertia switch,dk grn/yellow,also gives constant power leaving switch(pnk/blk)to fuel pump.there are 4 wires on fuel pum plug.pnk/blk is power and blk is ground,i have 12.54vdc at these points.fuel pump still will not prime.the other 2 wires are for the sender(gas guage,it works.yel/wht,blk/org.this has beat me up.bed is off and i found sticker on top of fuel pump assembly,and the date says 07-24-2000 and thats when the truck was built.also changed fuel filter,thats when pump quit priming.it started up after filter changed but died 5 minutes later in driveway,and now pump will not prime at all.i know that the crank sensor has to see rpm before the engine starts,but i dont think it stops the fuel pump from priming.the pump is 15 years old.i think pump is gone,but not sure.anyone had this problem or know anything i missed,please help.

you can buy just the sending unit.this is what tells your vehicle how much fuel is in the tank,and you would transfer all the parts from the old module assembly to the new one. or you could replace the entire fuel pump module for around $1400.00.if you do all the work yourself>>>

your friend is right.there is a safety feature,it's called common sense!all batteries are clearly marked at each terminal..POS or +...and NEG or -..all jumper cables are marked/color coded RED for POS and BLACK for NEG..it's just that simple..STUFF like this should NEVER happen! i stopped at a store couple of weeks ago,saw a guy who used to live on my street,his hood was up,car won't crank over.i looked and saw pos terminal very loose,bottomed out.i told him to loosen it and turn it over,top side is smaller than bottom side,so a good temp fix for now,got it tight,still won't crank,he said i need cables,i said i don't have any,which i did,and he wanted to use my truck also..i walked inside the store,he found someone else,i looked out the window,his battery flew across the parking lot in pieces from hooking the cables up backwards! Sulfuric Acid was everywhere.

i wouldn't worry to much about the horny blowing..i would ask uncle when he put the new battery in,did he see a bunch of sparks flying,then he saw what he had done and changed the cables back,turned the battery around in the correct place? all vehicle batteries are clearly marked at each terminal with a PLUS and a MINUS sign/symbol. also,the battery cables are clearly marked/color coded,RED being the POSITIVE cable and BLACK being the NEGATIVE cable! there is no telling what got fried or how much it will cost to get it fixed! i stopped at a store a couple weeks ago,there was a guy under his hood asking everyone that walked by for jumper cables and to use their vehicle to jump start him. i knew this guy,but something is different about him know(DRUGS) i could just tell by all the weight he has lost and the way he was talking.he ask me for cables and to use my truck to jump start him. i told him i didn't have any,which i did,and i really felt bad about telling him that.i walked into the store and turned to look back at him and his car. as soon as i did he jumped about 3 feet in the air.i ran back out to see what happened.when i looked at his battery,i didn't need to be told anything. it blew his battery to pieces,i mean pieces.i don't jump start anyone anymore,unless i hook all 4 cable ends myself.no excuse for what uncle did,he did not pay attention to what he was doing,and will cost someone a good bit to get it fixed. by the way,AUTOZONE,ADVANCE,O'REILLY,etc install batteries for FREE...
