I took my original FPDM off sometime in early 2013.
Painted it with several coats of enamel. Made a fiber gasket that mounted between FPDM and frame.
Still running good. When the snow melts I'll drop the spare and see how it looks 6 years later.

Default Thanks for the info

Many thanks to all who have posted about the fuel pump driver module. I have had my 2006 Scab almost 6 months now, and after reading about this problem I purchased the module, but never installed it. Friday afternoon, I turned the truck off in my driveway and when I went out 20 minutes later to start it, no luck! I knew what the problem was right away, and 15 minutes later I was back on the road. Thanks again!

I never thought of trying to repair one. I'm keeping this bookmarked just in case.

I'm taking a road trip next week and I'm starting to push my luck with my OEM FPDM. Truck has 156k on it in west Texas, so rust isn't an issue, but I am worried about it crapping out on the road. The question is, stick with OEM MC, Dorman, or Spectra?

I believe the concern is more about the dissimilar metals of the FPDM and where it is mounted (aluminum and steel) that causes the corrosion and not from salt or dirt...the new version has a stand off so the dissimilar metals do not make contact...

good luck with your choice

Haven't heard or read about any large amount of failures on the Dorman unit. Did some work on a 2005 F150 that belongs to one of my tenants, including replacing a failed FPDM. Installed a Dorman unit from Napa and still going strong 8 months later. Comes with the stand offs and new bolts.

I guess for me is I worry the the Dorman unit will be just like their blend door actuators (junk). However, I've never heard of Spectra.

Has anyone had one of these fail when it's still relatively new and in good shape? I'm having terrible fuel problems but the FPDM looks great.

So my truck 2008 F-150 fx4 died on me the other day. Here is what Iíve done so far.

- Traced out each wire from FPDM and checked for continuity, all good.
- replaced FPDM with a used ford part and a new Dorman part 590-001
- checked inertia switch, which was in the correct position.
- checked fuel rail sensor and checked wires for continuity. Good there too
-fuel pump will cycle and truck will run with power direct to fuel pump, bypassing the FPDM.
- tried plugging in another fuel pump while FPDM was in the loop just to see if it was a voltage issue from the installed pump. But nothing.
Any advice??
