mtajpa - Thanks for the info. Looks like I only have to plug the new harness in and not worry about the green wire. I'll try it this weekend and if it works will the cut off the green wire on the new harness. Also plan to look near the fuel filler to see if the old one is there and attached. If so, take that one out too.

Hooked it up today. Works great, just wrapped up the green wire and put it to the side. Problem solved. Yeah

The previous owner of my PS205 had this issue and the dealer could never find the problem. It Inermittenly lost contact. He sold the boat to me in pristine condition for cheap due to this gremlin. I replaced the fuel pump once and was about to replace it again when I ran across the real problem by accident. I took mine apart and re-bent the connectors and it works perfect now. The female connections were loose in the fitting. I had the same issue with my tach. I bet a lot of good fuel pumps get the blame for this bad connection.

We had the same thing happen on my buddy's X2, we checked the relay and saw melting plastic from the resistance of the bad connection.

I had this connector problem that you all have had. Mine was the black wire was kinked so bad that the wires had broken inside the black wire jacket. I think that I have found a replacement connector from AutoZone. The part number is Airtex WH3009. I was looking on Carters website and had stumbled over a "Fuel Tech Solution" that they had posted. Here is the link

http://www.carterfueldelivery.com/fu...ining/fts4.pdf

The Carter 888-601 (upgraded module connector) looks like the one that is on my 2000 ProStar 195. I did a serch for this connector on Google and found that this connector is for a 2001-2003 Chevy Tahoe fuel pump wiring harness. I used this information on AutoZone's website and got the Airtex WH3009 part number.

I don't know if this will work but if it does, it is $12.99 and is stock at the AutoZone that is in town that I live in.

Sorry to bring back such an old thread, but would anyone here happen to know the Mastercraft part number for the fuel pump wiring harness that is shown in this thread? The parts guy at the dealer i use is having a tough time finding it.

I had to have my fuel pump wiring harness replace last year. It was on on 2010 X-15 with a MCX. The work order shows parts 508436 "Fuel Pump Harness" and 508871 "Fuel Harness Pigta" on the repair bill. Using Google I found them at http://www.charlotteskiboats.com/mastercraft_parts.cfm. Hope this helps.

Was your harness and plug the same as the ones pictures in this thread? I was thinking that it is probably different than mine since my boat is a 99.

Here are some pictures so you can judge. The last picture, is the coil of conduit in which the green wire (ground) is wrapped in. It appears in the second to last picture off to the left when you can see only a portion of that coil. My green wire runs off somewhere else in the boat. But the other wires (grey and black) run to that little connector you also see in the second to last picture. We have now reached the limit of my knowledge in this area.
