Hi thanks for your reply.
The car isn't a common rail, individual supply from high pressure pump to each injector. No in tank pump either, just a gauze pick up the the high pressure pump draws from. Instead there is a hand pump in the engine bay on top of the fuel filter.
Plenty of flow from the prime pump, yes bled easy.
When you say IP is the internal pump?
I've had a funnel hooked up direct to the high pressure pump in the engine bay, had someone turn the engine over for 30secs (on the starter motor, not with the engine running itself) and it doesn't use the fuel, doesn't suck it, literally same level in the funnel.
Why would the pump not draw the fuel? Immobiliser issue?
So I can check the wiring, what should I expect to get at the loom to the pump?
Well a damaged line drawing air into it would prevent the lift pump from drawing fuel from the tank.
When the key is to ON, you shoul get a click at the pump at battery voltage.
