Replaced the 409 relay fuel pump. The fuel pump itself also did the crank sensor. Got original vw parts so as to not have any issues and am getting no where. The pump primes when you open the door but no power after that. Any help would be greatly appreciated
What year New Beetle and what brand and part number, was the fuel pump? So, just to be clear; the fuel pump relay and and fuel pump, are genuine vw parts?
If the fuel pump comes on; after the door is open, I would assume you are getting power to the fuel pump. I would check the other basics; fuel pressure and spark. Are you getting spark? Remove a spark plug; connect it to the spark plug wire and ground it on the engine. Have someone turn the engine over for you and observe; whether or not, there is spark at the electrode of the spark plug. If there is; then, I would be checking the fuel pump pressure.
Don't have the part numbers on me. Yeah I checked spark it was good on the one cylinder I checked. The relay I can feel click when I turn the key. Just not sure why it's not sending power to the pump. Checked it with a multimeter while cranking it over. Haven't done the filter but with no pressure at the pump wasn't concerned with that just yet
Back into this bug... found out after extensive fuel chasing that I have no spark. Ok I changed the coil. The old one had a melted spot... still no spark... any suggestions. Getting exhausted with this thing
