    Fuel pump :(

    So I'm leaving off my street and as soon as I turn on the next street the car dies. No codes or anything. I do however notice the absence of the fuel pump. Now I could have sworn that a fuel pump failure would set a code but NONE! I jumped 12 volts at the relay connection in the fuse box and still nothing. Am I wrong to say that a fuel pump failure should set a code? I'm assuming that only the control side of the relay is montored. 98 concours 212000 miles!

    Turn the key to "on" or "acc", then stand buy the fuel door and listen for a high-pitched whine, thats the fuel pump, if you don't hear it, its dead.

    Oh I'm quite sure its dead, but was under the conclusion that a dead fuel pump would set a code guess not?

    I am not positive, but I don't think the fuel pump will set a DTC.

    A few months ago my Cadi wouldn't start ... until I replaced the fuel pump -- implying the pump was the problem. And there were never any codes indicating the fuel pump was bad. '97 STS.
