I have a 2006 Raptor 700R that won't start. It hasn't ran in a couple of years but has been garaged. I drained all fuel and replaced it with ethanol free and a little sea foam. I replaced battery and spark plug and checked the air filter. I cannot hear the fuel pump prime when I turn the key (I've been told that you should be able to hear it prime). I also disconnected the fuel line from the pump and no fuel comes out when I push start. I disconnected the cable from the fuel pump and read for VDC. On 2 of the wires I got 12VDC with the key turned on. On the other 2 wires I got 12VDC when I push the start button. The electrical appears to be working fine. I bought a new fuel pump and installed it. Still wouldn't start so I checked the wires going from the pump itself to the plug on the plastic housing and one was bad so I replaced both of them as well. It's still not starting so I'm thinking maybe it has something to do with whatever the other 2 wires go to (not sure of the part name). It's a small silver cylinder that looks pretty corroded and what appears to be some kind of grounding post that one of the wires is attached to. Can anyone identify this part for me and let me know if that would cause my fuel pump not to prime and work properly? Thanks.
