 While driving 2000 dodge stratus i experienced a fuel pump failure. upon inspection of the fuel pump it clearly shows a short of the four wire electrical wire connection that is housed within the fuel tank. this failure did not result in an explosion or fire however if conditions were right this could have caused fire or an explosion of the fuel cell potentially resulting in loss of property and life. i have the part and photographs which are available upon request.*ak
