Customers may complain of intermittent poor reception on their two-way radios.
NOTE: This condition does not affect the operation of any AM or FM band radio.
Radio receivers from aprox 20 MHz to 174 MHz may be susceptible to RFI from the fuel pump module's motor.
The following services are within this band:
Turn ignition key to the run position. Operate the two-way radio and monitor for RFI/static/poor reception. If RFI is present with key in run position, RFI is being emitted by something other than the fuel pump module's motor. Start the engine and monitor for RFI. If RFI is identified only with the engine running, perform the following repair.
NOTE: IT IS IMPORTANT TO IDENTIFY WHICH COMPONENTS ARE EMITTING RFI. AFTER A REPAIR HAS BEEN MADE, PERFORM THE DIAGNOSIS AGAIN TO IDENTIFY IF ANY OTHER COMPONENT IS PRODUCING RFI. SOME VEHICLES MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL DIAGNOSIS.
