Diesel heater fuel pump


I have just finished installing a PPAP Diesel heater and Im having some issues. It seams the ECU is the main cause and the seller is sending a new one. 

My question is about the operation  of the fuel pump.

When I primed the system and applied power direct to the fuel pump it clicked once then stopped. By continuing this process, apply then disconect then apply, I have been able to prime the system.

From my experience I expected that when I energised the pump it would run continuosly till it reached pressure.

Is this a correct assumption or does the ECU drive the pump by energising then disconnecting?

Hi Bruce,

You may get more of a response posting in the Techies forum.

I fitted a diesel heater in my previous van and I primed the system by gravity and then after a couple of on and offs it operated just fine.
There appears to be more and more problems now with these cheaper heaters than there was when I bought and fitted mine.

Mind you I thought my kit was cheap at around $700.00 (complete) compared to what some of them where costing back then.

Thanks heaps, the article answers my question.

The ECU pulses power to the pump, switching power on and off to provide a single pump of fuel.

I can relax now.
