It can show 0 psi or close to it, depending on the problem. The 2 second prime is actually a different electrical circuit, so you want to make sure you have cranking pressure as well. If there's an electrical problem you may have the prime but no cranking pressure or the opposite. If you have 0 psi, you'll need to check for power and ground back at the pump connector, if there's no power (12 volts) back at the pump, you'll go to the fuel pump relay next and so on. If you don't hear the pump prime, which you should, you can go right to the pump and check for power. Bang on the fuel tank as well, it may kick start the pump while cranking. If it starts while banging on the tank, the pump will still need to be replaced. Anything else you might question during these tests?
