AirDog 2 Wiring help

I just got the airdog installed all the plumbing is in. now im having a problem with wiring it up, the pos and neg leads are hooked to the battery I have the fuse plugged in under the dash and the airdog pump is plugged in all fuses are good. when i turn the key on to start the truck i do not hear the pump turn on I have a fuel pressure gauge and it shows no pressure with the key on. did i miss anything?
thanks for your help in advance.

I've installed one on a Cummins and the directions for it said that the pump may not energize when just the key is turned on. Said that it will energize when the starter is bumped and start cranking. Have you tried that? Not sure if it will be the same for the Ford.

Only other thing I can think of is possible faulty relay. I'm sure someone will chime in and help out.

I am guessing that you tested the fuse to make sure that it was ignition on fuse. With that said check that the pigtail is plugged in tight at the pump. I have my fuse under the hood connected to the 10 amp ABS fuse. Thats the one they showed in the directions. It is a positive ignition on and runs a little hotter for the pump. Let me know if this helps if not I can get you pics of my install.

It stays on all the time? to the ABS fuse? Ok well I dont think that you have the right fuse. Use a test light. It should be the fuse line closest to the fender and second one down from the firewall. You should be useing the supplied fuse plug from the kit and just plug it in. take that ten amp fuse out and put it in the extra space on the plug of the AD2. Regaurdless you should be using a test light ignition on light on, ignition off light off. Thats it. There are 10 or so available under the dash and just a couple under the hood. Under hood is just a little hotter and cleaner install. I havent tried the alternater method though. let me know.
