Default Intermittent Power to Fuel Pump

Hello,
I have a 98 Ram 1500 4x4 5.2L. I was parked on an incline, and after returning to my my Ram, it wouldnt start, only cranked and sputtered. I noticed when turning on the key, I did not hear the fuel pump pressurizing. I swapped around some fuses and relays in the Power Distribution Center, still no joy. After pushing the vehicle off to the side that was on abit of an incline, I turned the key and heard the fuel pump pressurize, so I cranked the starter and she started up. Any ideas on the cause of this issue? Any switches or connections I need to check? I would hate to get stuck somewhere again.
Thanks,
Ken

It's quite possible the fuel pump may be going out . Is it the factory original pump ? How many miles on it ?

Yes, factory original. 110k miles. If/when it happens again, Im thinking of verifying voltage at the pump connector. Hopefully that should eliminate the PCM, ASD relay, Pump relay, Power Distribution Block and line back to pump. If no voltage at Pump connector, I guess I will have to work backwards from the Pump. I first need to find out however if 12V would be the correct voltage value at the Pump connector.

Thanks,
Ken

I agree with Tom. That's about the mileage mine started acting up on my 95 1500.

Verified 12V at Pump connector today. Pump however is dead, luckily it expired while in the garage. I will be doing it the hard way,...... pulling the bumper and unbolting the bed.

thanks,
Ken

Yes, I guess I was lucky. You wouldnt happen to know how to disconnect small fuel line connector on top of the fuel pump. I was able to get the 4 pin electrical connector off. I also got one fuel line connector (with a blue quick release) off. One connector (All black, ) left to go, and I cant seem to remove that one. I would inclue a pic but the forum pic file sizes wouldnt allow for it.

thanks,
Ken

It was a quick disconnect. Release by squeezing the "halo" ring together at points 90 degrees from where ring is attached to remaining portion of connector. Hope that will helpful to someone else too.


Thanks,
Ken
