    I had the fuel pump replaced about 8 month ago. Last Wednesday I went to start the truck and no go. No sound from the fuel pump. I checked the connections and still no start.
    I there a relay or fuse that I am missing? I hope pumps last more than 8 months.

    Does it have the inertia switch? Usually mounted in the rear near the tank, designed to shut the pump off after an accident. And it does not take a big hit to trip them, sometimes no impact.

    There is a fuel pump relay, there should be 2 bosch type relays near the air box, 1 for fuel pump, the other for the computer.

    Also if you purchased a cheap pump it could be dead all ready.

    That same thing happened to me as I was letting my truck warm up illegally parked in front of my apartment building's front door. I missed the whole night of plowing because I didn't know where the relay was. Check there first! Good luck

    It was the pump. Started at the front checking and all was good until I wound up at the pump.
    Dropped the tank and put in a new ford pump and away I went.

    Which will bring out the Cliff Claven for a minute.
    The fuel pump is kept cool by the gas in the tank, keep the tank full and the pump should last longer. It is just a bigger PITA to change the pump out while the tank is full. :D

    At 3:15 a gallon it will not see a full tank for a while. The first pump lasted until a year ago.
