The gremlin still resides here, I replaced the fuel pump only, but no go. The connector was secured firmly.
I have power to connector but on checking the area where the connector fits through the top of the housing and checking the current on the inside wires leading directly to the pump, no power.
An observation shows 2 hot spots on the top of the fuel pump/sender assembly where the connector plugs in. The male pins show no sign of heat but there are the 2 heated areas away from the connector pins.
The wiring in has power to three connectors the other is for the fuel gauge sensor? all have voltage.
Checking inside the assembly no power to the pump wires, should I just replace the whole assembly as the problem could lie within the circuit through the top mount of the fuel pump/sender assembly?
