Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The truck was running great. The last trip was driving in rain. parked it and it would not start again. when I
turn it over after a few seconds there is a 'beeping' noise and the gas hand does not move.. We replace
relay and checked fuses.Still no luck. I just bought it drove it 3 short trips and now I'm lost.

the thing above the fuel pump is an accumlator which holds gas so that your feul pump doesn't have to work as hard. I would try the fuel filter if the truck wont start and see if it is pluged up.
