|bluerooster||Replacement installed Friday, drove it yesterday, and today. No issues.|

|mrboca||It is a common problem with the relays (either the fuel pump relay or the relay that powers the ECU. It is best to get a replacement.|

The K40 for the 420 is a bit different, but I figure that it operates the same.
There is full time "hot" to the coil of the K1 via pin A2, the ECM provides "earth" to engage the K1. K1 will not engage when grounded at the proper pin (E3). I figure that the relay, or connection between relay and pin E3 is bad.

|mrboca||You could try the following. This is for 1997 E320 but should be the same or similar. Obviously either the K1 is bad or the ECU is not turning it on for some reason.|

|bluerooster||Fuel pump had been running up until today, now it only runs when I manually engage K1. So now I need to look "upstream" to find what tells K1 to engage, and see if there is signal from that point.|

|mrboca||The diagram is incorrect in that sense, but if the fuel pump runs, that is not what you need to worry about. Check the voltage on the camshaft timing solenoids and the air pump switchover pump terminals with the key is position 2.|

|bluerooster||Interesting, that the fuel pump is not powered directly from the fuel pump relay in the K40 box. Based upon the schematic that you posted.|
