Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal

Hello,

If the fuel pump isn't running, let's check that circuit.

Verify you have power at the 20 amp FI fuse (#2) and after the engine stop relay (#1). Power then flows through the fuel cut-off relay (#12). Do you have power at all of those locations?

The other side of the fuel cut off relay is the signal wire from the ECM, so knowing where you have power and where you don't will narrow down why your pump isn't running. Let me know what you find.
