Installed new harness tonight, confirmed 12v at plug when cycling key, pump still not powering on.

Im scratching my head now. Could it really be the physical bulkhead connector? Pins look fine.

Which plug is showing 12V? The one on the hat or the one actually plugged into the pump?

Could be your pump is dead.

The 12v is at the hat plugging into the bulkhead.
The reason I attached the harness, I initially was just checking the bulkhead plug and when I pulled the plug out and put it back in, I cycled the key and the pump came on. Figured end of story, it's the connector...

I cannot even get the pump to come on at all regardless of what i do at the bulk head - hell I just put a pin connector on it with a lead and hooked it to 12v, still nothing.

In progress of pulling the hanger out now. Guess my question would be - it's referenced above about the stock bulkhead connector not being able to handle the higher current - is there an aftermarket replacement for the stock one - or are we talking about drilling into the bulkhead or tank and putting a new bulkhead wire harness in?

Thanks for the help,
John

Racetronix sells a replacment for the stock bulkhead that has a higher current capacity. I actually bought one to use on my DIY dual pump hanger recently.
