    Fuel Pump Probs

    Hey All: I have just joined this fine forum and all of your input has really helped on issues I haven't had to deal with yet (but there noted) and one's I have. My issue today is fuel pumps. About two weeks ago I drove my vcross on a 300+mile trip and had no probs. Two days ago I went 2 blocks to the local Wal Mart came out it started just fine then died. Then each time I tried to start her it got alittle worse (not even trying to hit) so I let it sit for acouple hours, returned and still turns over great and fast. Seems like no fire or no gas. Tried tapping on the fuel pressure regulator, no help. So I had a rollback pick it up (at night of course) take it to a trusting tech and the next day (Monday) they said the prob was a blown fuel pump fuse caused by the pump getting hot and overloading (2 block trip??) Anyway he's going to get the pump overnighted and fix it on Wed, so I searched in this forum and ran across someone who had the same problem and he had the main power wire that ran to the pump shorting out against the body causing and grounded short and popping the fuse. I went by the shop and told them to check the fuel pump wiring first before they dropped the tank. He said no problem. I will post an update. Thx again for all the great input this forum supplies....Steve

    Well The fuel pump was the problem. All the wiring and connections were ok. Just a heads up, the wiring goes through the body on the passenger side under the seat. And there's a connector there you should check for any corrosion/bad contact. Also the fuel pump fuse is under the hood on the right side, it's a basic 15 amp fuse. Later all.

    Hey, Steve. That animated gif is the coolest VX sig I've ever seen! It took a long time to load for me, but it was worth it. Great job, man!

    Also, I like your silver sun screen and those nice wheels. 18's?

    Thanks Mark: I can't take credit for the sig, My buddy is always up for a good challange and he always comes through. I love the 18"s but winter is about here and time to put the stocks on, and I had to lose the "sun shade" I got tired of bending down to see stoplights..
