How To Fix A Dead 12v Pump

Cody from Southeast Softwash recently showed us a video on how to troubleshoot and fix a dead 12v pump. The pressure switch on the pump was bad, and the pump wasn't running. Cody showed us how to confirm that the pressure switch was the problem, and how to bypass it.

Symptoms of a Dead 12v Pump

If you plug in a 12v pump and it doesn't run, it could be a few different things. Cody showed us how to confirm that the pressure switch was the problem. He tested the pump by plugging it in and flipping the switch. When he flipped the switch, the pump didn't run. He then tested the voltage and confirmed that the pump was live.

How to Confirm the Pressure Switch is the Problem

Cody then showed us how to confirm that the pressure switch was the problem. He checked the screws to make sure they were tight and sealed up. He then took a jumper wire and short circuited the pump. When he did this, the pump came on and ran. This confirmed that the pressure switch was the problem.

How to Bypass the Pressure Switch

Cody then showed us how to bypass the pressure switch. He unplugged the pressure switch and then took a jumper wire and short circuited the pump. This bypassed the pressure switch and allowed the pump to run.

Conclusion

Cody showed us how to troubleshoot and fix a dead 12v pump. He showed us how to confirm that the pressure switch was the problem and how to bypass it. If you have a dead 12v pump, you can follow the steps outlined in this video to get it running again.
