The pump works when it wants to and I have traced it back to being a electrical problem. I let it sit for two days and tried to crank it and it just wouldn't fire up. I jumped the pump off to make sure the carb had gas and it fired up(took off jumper wire) started to warm up , took choke off and idled fine for a couple minutes and then just died out. Ran out of gas. Before this (the two days ago) the atv cranked up like normal and I let it idle for over 30 minutes and it never ran out of gas. I would acasionaly walk by and rock the throttle a couple times to clear out the carb and the pump was working like it should. On and off etc... This is the exact same thing it was doing before I replaced the relay. Surely two relays in a row aren't bad? Can I run a full time hot wire(when the key is on) to the relay to bypass factory wiring and make sure the relay isn't loosing power? Thanks.
