Fuel pump won't turn on

Asked by Nov 28, 2016 at 05:39 PM about the 2013 Dodge Avenger R/T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving my car a couple of weeks ago now
when it suddenly died on me. Luckily it was right
my my house so we coasted it to the driveway. Had
my brother take a look at it and he found the fuel
pump wasn't turning on. He checked all the fuses
and relays, used a test light and power is going to
the pump. We thought the pump went bad so we
put a new one in. Still wouldn't turn on so we took it
back to the auto parts store and they admitted to
having problems with getting decfective parts in
recently. We tried looking for an inertia switch but
couldn't find one. He ran a wire from the battery
and used the test light and it said I had 2 ground
wires for the fuel pump and there should only be
one. I'm not sure what's going on. I feel like we
should try a fuel pump from a different store and
see if it works. He thinks it's something to do with
the computer and thinks I should take it in. Any
advice would be greatly appreciated. (Just for the
record I bought this car brand new less than 4 years
ago. It has just over 20,000 miles on it and I've kept
up on maintenance.)
