So, I'm driving my TJ down a very busy intersection's left turn lane (one of two), and the whole thing just goes DIW. (Dead In Water) Turn on key, no fuel pump spin-up, fuel gauge motionless. (In fact, all needles are, but it doesn't start so they probably wouldnt move yet. Need to recheck- But definitely dead-still fuel gauge.) Idiot lights work, (pre-start instruments), but no gauge movement. Absolutely no starting effort. Haven't pulled codes yet, if any. Will after breakfast.
97 TJ 2.5L Auto, 160,000 plus miles, fuel pump sounded like a turbine engine a few months ago anyway, so just changed it out yesterday while it's inop. (bench tested old one, was still working.) Reattached all connectors, no change in gauges, still no FP spin-up.
Nada. Zilch. It's a gaint paper-weight.
Any insight will be greatly appreciated. It's my DD. I'm renting a car for the duration.
Thank you, in advance.
