My b2.. I've been fighting a fuel issue for awhile now. To date it has a new pressure pump, filter, and relay... problem is it still randomly dies.

Today I cranked it and let it idle for about 8 mins then it dies and won't start back up and the pressure pump is no longer getting power... after it sits a bit it'll work perfect.

input... GO! :icon_thumby:
I'm going crazy here. About to go check all fuses and stuff... It's random is what's getting me confused.

check the inertia switch, its on the passenger side floor/firewall. the connectors get burnt and make intermittent contact.

Intermittent dying and the pressure pump gets no power.

How about the lift pump? Does it still power up.
