Same in my case.
Electrical erosion isn't the only failure mode.
The internals of the pump can corrode and the piston can stick. In this case you tend to get intermittent failure symptoms. A sharp hit to the pump will free it up for a little while... maybe enough to get you home (as was my case).

Facet was the replacement here too ...
