I have a new Remco Lube-Pump installed in a 2006 Dodge MiniVan. Worked perfectly til the current outing. As we were driving, I kept hearing this tiny intermittent squeaky-noise that started driving me CRAZY. Thinking it was something plastic rubbing, we instigated a detailed search and Wife finally localized the noise to the Remco Box under the dash!

After putting up with the noise for too many-a-mile, I finally got to stop for the nite and immediately started troubleshooting. Turns out the sense-line for the pump-pressure operation was barely making contact in the coily-cord connector at one end, and causing the alarm to flick on and off. After I opened up the connectors, I found that the wires at one end were barely inserted into their respective socket-hole much less tightened enough to make contact. So I tightened each terminal and now have a nice quiet (and I might mention less-stressful!) tow-ride.

Bottom line is that the low-pressure sense/alarm system in the dash-box worked as advertised, too bad it was false-sensing because of its own poor construction.
