I will know tomorrow, it got dark on me tonight when I was trying to check it, but it has been giving me trouble for the last week, with the WTS start light not coming on after it would act up and stall, and I would wait for a while, and finally get the WTS to come on, then the pump would run and the truck would start, I just put a Blue Chip VP44 on it today, it ran great for about 10 minutes, then back to acting up, and now the WTS will NEVER come on, and the pump will not run at all, but it will start, I guess because the VP44 is new, and the internal pump in it is strong enough to make it start and keep it running. But because the WTS light is not coming on, I am thinking the ECM is not sending the signal to the pump
That's what I have been seeing a lot through all the research I have been doing for the last week. The VP44 was weak too though, because one time when I hot wired it it, it still wouldn't start. I think the ECM is bad too, but I wish there was a way to know for sure
Thanks, I'll check the power to the ECM today, I'm sure it is good though. I haven't found any power issues, wiring problems, or any corrosion in any plugs, or anywhere else in the truck. Now if I can find an ECM around here (central Florida) then get it flashed all in one day, maybe I can get on the road! Lol
Thanks, I found them earlier when doing a search, but they are 246 miles south of me Trying to find a good used one right now, I know that's not ideal, but I'm getting close to a deadline on this delivery and pick up I have to do
do you have the oem lift pump? sorry if that was asked and answered. also the wts light could be a blown bulb...... verify it is actually working, when first turning the key on the instrument panel lights all bulbs to verify they work.
it is the original OEM lift pump, but the WTS light has been intermittently not coming on, and when it wouldn't the lift pump would not run either. the WTS light never did come on when I turned the key on before, even when it did work, but it has been delayed for a long time, it would not come on till all the other dash lights went out
