Default Fule Pump Replacement Required?

It appears the fuel pump on my 2005 Ram 1500 is not working.

There is no humming noise from the pump when turning the ignition on to just before the truck turns over.

Fuse appears good. I swapped relays with a matching relay to see if anything changed and it did not.

At this point I am assuming the pump is shot. Is it safe to assume?

If so, where can I get best instructions to replace the pump?

It may be a safe bet that the pump is gone, what kind of mileage does it have on it?

There are 2 ways to really get to the pump housing since it's located on the top of the fuel tank. Lifting the bed off is the 'easy' way if you've got a few good friends to help you lift it off, but for most of us, you need to drain the fuel tank, undo the straps and drop the tank to change out the pump. Before you change them pump I'd check that you have proper power being supplied to the pump using a voltmeter just in case it's a broken wire in the harness.

Help!!!! Similar problem however, I have 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9L. Ran out of gas and poured in 6 gallons, it won't stay running. When switch to on position I hear the pump priming, I disconnected the fuel line to the fuel and its getting gas there. It will start and idle for minutes, however, it will then start to spudder and die out. Should I replace the fuel pump, add more gas, some reset I can do???? BTW I also disconnected the battery and reconnected before it would even start and idle. I also installed a GF Chips Chip to the IAC about 1000 miles ago, could this cause problems?
Thanks, Terry

Terry, i would add another gallon or 2 of gas

I know on the newer Rams, there is like a reservoir that is not used normally, something like 3 gallons

For the first poster,
make sure that you have power close to the tank
sliding the trucks bed out of the way, is the way to replace the fuel pump

the reason is not the dropping of the tank, but putting it back in
3 hoses & an electrical connection to connect in a very tight place
pinching the hoses & cutting a wire happens often
with the bed out of the way, you don't have the same problem
