97 dodge dakota 4 cyl

was driving down the road truck started chugging like it was a clogged fuel filter.

or ice in line pulled into gas station to put in dry gas and truck died noticed fuel gauge said it was empty so I put in 20 dollars still gas gauge sai empty. Cranks over no start and I dont hear the fuel pump engage.

I guess my question is could it be a broke wire or if the fuel pumps goes bad will the gas gauge also go bad?

and can I some how hot wire the pump to check for operation and trouble shooting?

Ok pulled gas tank and fuel pump out jumpered fuel pump and runs when I do?

Found 2 fuses for fuel pump one checks good simple two prong check

the other however is a 6 prong how would I check that? And if that is bad would that cause both the fuel pump and the gas gauge not to work?

No thanks to this worthless community

a bad ecm will cause the problems as described

2 carpros is the worst site ever created

and the little advice they do give is total crap

like the bad brake lights tells the guy to check his brake switch and not the connection at the light itself

glad I dont donate to bafoons

good luck to all unsuspecting people who do donate
