May be bad ground at pump,or wire hot lead coming from relay.Check hot wire to pump,for fire,if you have it there then check the ground.

Does your Durango have factory security? And is there a light that flashes w a pic of a key,or marked security?

Steven,doe,s your truck have a chip key?

Steven Smith


The reason I asked is some slts were equipped w factory security two layer as a matter fact one layer locks out starter the other was the key if the skim reader does not recognize key it cuts the fuel pump via the ecm the center terminal is the one your jumping then you most likely have a key or skim reader issue. You can ground the center terminal I believe and it will by pass the reader. And shouldn't give you anymore bullshit. But on the other hand theres solving it the right way.........

Swap a relay

Steven Smith

Put new ones in tried grounding the center terminal and now my evap valve is clicking and odometer miles is flashing

Unplug your ecm let sit for 10-15 mins and reconnect. Have you scanned it it see if you have communication w the ecm? And was this a progressive problem?

Steven Smith

Not tried scanning it yet and no just quit thought it was the fuel pump but turns out it wasnt

90s mopars are know for poor connections try resetting the ecm

Steven Smith

Ok ill let you know tomorrow thanks guys for the help
