    Virage TXi not getting fuel

    Any ideas why my ski is not pumping fuel?

    If I connect power and ground directly to leads, fuel pump works fine

    Emm is just in from emm repair so I should have no issues there

    What other system could tell the fuel pump to work or not. Bad module somewhere?

    Also, if I ground out connected pump on test lead, it does not kick on either

    You are grounding the Brown fuel pump wire, with the fuel pump plugged in, correct?

    Check that the fuse or breaker for the fuel pump is good. Should be 12 volts on Brown wire when it is plugged in and NOT grounded.

    Figured out the issue. Just have to fix it now.

    When I connected plug to pump, the pin for the red wire is loose and getting pushed back instead of making a good connection. I pushed it tight as I re-attached plug and ski has fuel again.

    Anyway to make those pins firm in the connector so they don't get pushed back or come loose again?

    Elsewhere in an older thread I posted photos of a Ficht fuel pump test jig, including info on how the oddball fuel pump connectors are assembled.
