So checked the connector under the van behind the front seats (about in the middle of the underside). There was no corrosion, but there was no voltage going TO the connector, even in that first two/three seconds before the voltage is cut out. Not sure why there is no voltage at that connector, but I ran 12v that is on ONLY when the ignition is on RUN, and that solved MY problem.
**I am trying to find this connector as well, the dealerships around here acted like they had no idea what it even was. I was told to direct wire the fuel pump maybe through a relay or something. I also have heard of doing it the way you described here. Could you please tell me exactly what you did, and how you did it? I can't seem to find anyone who knows how to do this. **
REMEMBER, PEOPLE... Ventures (Silhouetes, Montanas, etc) only have a 2- to 3-second time p[eriod to check for voltage! If the ignition key is on LONGER THAN THAT (and the engine isn't running), the computer shuts off the voltage to the fuel pump so the pump doesn't continue to run if the the engine doesn't!!!! Easiest thing to do is listen for the pump when you turn the key on to the "run" position... it should run for 2-3 seconds and then shut off. You DO NOT have to turn the key to START position to do that... Hope this helps. (And the fuel pump electrical connector near the front of the tank, under the van, is notorious for getting corroded... be sure it is nice and clean, otherwise replace it).
where can I find one to replace it?
