Ok experts...my buddy's AirDog 100 quit running with the key turned forward...he now has to crank the motor in order for it to run...when he cranks and releases, it runs and he is able to wait few moments with the AD100 running to let it load the fuel...he swears the AD100 always used to run with key turned forward...what the deal?:confused013:...thanks!

It should run for a couple seconds then shut off, just like the stock lift pump did. If he bumps the starter it will run longer but still shut off after like 30 sec.

if he has it wired to the stock wiringlike it sounds then this is normal. it comes on builds pressure and shuts off. if u hhave pressure when u turn on the key it won't start running, but if bump the starter it comes on and runs, builds, shuts off. its OK!:thumbsup:

He is saying that it never runs initially to build the pressure...Any known cause for that?...I will have him check the fuse slot..thanks

if it does not come on when u just turn on the key but it comes on when u bump the starter or start the truck,it just means it is seeing enough pressure which means his system is working properly. mine comes on sometimes,others only when i start the truck.if it runs at all,the fuse is good. im sure he is good to go!

:agree2:

He's right, mine does the same thing wired to the factory pump wiring, turn the key, runs for a few seconds then shuts off.
If you don't like it run the trigger to a switched feed but there's no reason too as long as it pumps when the motor's running.


01, I'd check your wiring for a bad connection, or check the circuit you connected to, start with that..?
