2 Answers


Did you check your inertia switch behind the passenger kick panel? That will kill the fuel pump. The fuel pump module is located above the spare tire mounted to the frame. The Fuel Pump Driver Module communicates diagnostic information to the powertrain control module (PCM) through the Fuel Pump Monitor (FPM) circuit. This information is sent by the FPDM as a duty cycle signal which in turns controls the fuel pump.
