Question Asked: fuel pump will not prime at all,used to hear for 2 seconds,now nothing.
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 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.

Question Answered: New battery and alternator why is battery light still flashing on and off?

check ALL connections..need to make em shine like corrosion,no loose connections,including grounds!.with a volt meter test battery voltage at the battery terminals with the car off..then start the engine and do the same test on the battery terminals with the engine findings and meter readings here..
Question Answered: One is under the hood the other one is inside

won't start? does it crank the engine over? lights/radio/etc coming on does not mean there is enough cranking amps in the battery to crank the engine many volts on the battery with the car off? was the alternator tested when you bought the new battery? will it jump start from another source? one what is under the hood and the other what is inside the car?
Question Answered: no power-no start-no nothing

alternator should have been tested before buying a new battery/,if the new battery is dead or drained,then it must be charged with a battery charger and have a full charge on it before the alternator can be tested. OR,if the battery drains over night or so while it's off,then you need to test for a Parasitic Battery Drain.copy and paste link below,see video.

Question Answered: Is the solenoid inside the starter
September 25, 2016, 10:02 AM
NO,the starter solenoid is mounted on top of the starter.YES,you can try and tap/smack the starter/solenoid while helper tries to start it.a good quality starter will run around $125.00 at NAPA if it has a 2.5L engine in your car which you didn't include in the question,so i'm guessing at the engine size? a solenoid is around $30.00.

disconnect the battery and remove it from the truck..then disconnect the alternator,remove it also..take them to the parts store and have them try and charge the battery..while they are doing that,have them test the alternator on their testing machine inside the store.see what happens..
