Option 3 - Replace burned ot fuel pump try again...:lol:Well, that would be great except a 99 zl 500 is a batteryless EFI.
Option 1 - Under the console by the steering post is where the plug for the electric fuel pump is. Unplug it there and then hook up a 12V battery to the pump. Red to + black to -. When you hook up the battery you should hear the pump run. Let it run for 5 to 10 seconds. That should get fuel through the fuel system and it should start normally.
Option 2 - Pull until your arm feels like rubber. Rest. Repeat.
Well that's good to know. I always just assumed it was like any other car fuel pump and often burned up after running out of fuel.That is just a little gear pump and it should not burn it out. I always just put a little gas in the cylinder and start it. never had a problem getting them going.
