Can't get fuel pump to work- truck won't start

Asked by Jul 04, 2017 at 09:09 AM about the 2005 Dodge Dakota 4 Dr SLT 4WD Quad Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Truck won't start.  Have tried replacing a ton of parts but no luck- replaced the fuel pump twice, crank sensor, all oxygen sensors, egr valve... Dealership had it for two days and swore it was the fuel pump but didn't work.  Seems like no power getting to the fuel pump.  Any ideas?

Would think dealership would have checked this but can you verify if there is power going to your fuel pump relay? Or has the relay already been swapped out? Sounds like dealership is just swapping parts and not doing any diagnostics. I hope for $ sake it's just a relay/fuse issue. Good Luck!
