I replaced the fuel pump, relays, filter, and fuses, but the fuel pump is not kicking in unless I hook it directly to the battery terminal. The fuel pump is getting power, but still not priming.
Do you
have the same problem?

Did you replace the connector? It is a comon issue for no pump.
Check the ground side as well.

Check and see if the pump has voltage to it when you first turn the key to crank.

Also check and see if there is 12 volts on the white wire @ the fuel pump relay when cranking the engine

We got it fixed. It was a rigged up inertia switch from the pervious user. Thanks!
