Electrical Problem


Recommended Posts

Anyone know a good electrical person in North Georgia or the Chattanooga area? While running starter ( 20sec on, 2 min off) to bleed fuel lines, I ended up with electrical odor and light smoke in cab! I would imagine that dealership is going to be super expensive on this one. Thanks,Eric

Eric,You should not have to turn the starter over. Your truck, like mine, has an electric lift pump (fuel pump) run by the ECM. When you click to RUN (before START) the lift pump should run for a few seconds & then shut off. This is what the VP44 injection pump calls for. Cranking will NOT run the lift pump more until it starts OR you cycle the key again. Too late now. I have no idea what you toasted. Possibly the starter? Wish I had better ideas,Russ

The proper way to bleed the pump is to bump the starter. That will make the lift pump run about 25 seconds at a time. Far as the smoke inside, I don't have any idea as to what got hot. Look under the dash and see what you can see.......:cool:
