P1237: Fuel Pump Secondary Circuit Malfunction Possible Causes: Open or shorted FP PWR circuit. Open FP RTN circuit to FPDM. Open or shorted circuit in the fuel pump. Locked fuel pump rotor. Damaged FPDM. So check all your fuel pump wiring for shorts,cuts, kinks and bad grounds.

checked the wiring-all looks ok. I think it might be the pump. Sould I take it to a professional? I'm at my wits end with this car!!!!!
