Tell your husband to try running a jumper wire from the fuse panel. Make sure the fuse is only hot when the ignition is on. Run the the jumper wire directly to the pump, down the frame rail, and making sure to secure it. That should resolve any problems with the fuel pump, that is, if he's checked all fuses and breakers going to the pump. I hope this is helpful. Please rate my solution, thanks.

Car won't run till you pour gas in the intake then will run til gas is used up

It most likely is your fuel pump.But first I would check the fuel filter if it is completly clogged and not letting fuel get through it could be that.Your fuel pump has an electric motor,when you turn your key you should hear a motor go on.

My 02 kia sportage just quit while i was driveing it now will not start why

Most likely the fuel pump has quit. Check it by having someone turn the ignition key to the run position (just when dash lights light up) listen to the fuel tank from as close as possible. for the first 2 seconds you should hear a whining sound. If you don't... the pump is not working.

My 1999 Kia Sportage won't start. I put a new fuel pump in replaced the car battery . Need help please...

Im dealing with a similar situation. But have found that I have no spark. By opening the end of the air intake and giving a little squirt of starter fluid and no start. Opened access to FP and pulled a hose. No fuel. So no fuel no spark. reading lots and lots of forums I have come to the conclusion it is either the Cam or the Crank sensor. The crank sensor is easier to get to and cheaper. I am going to check that first.

Engine won't start, it turns over but dosen't seem to have any fire

if it was working fine and then stopped starting out of the blue, the first thing I would check, and a known issue with Sportages, is the 2 relay switches under the hood in the little box near the battery. They are square and the same size. You can swap the 2 that are there and if it starts, I would buy 2 new relays and replace them.

If that doesnt do the trick, make sure you can hear the fuel pump kick on when you turn the key to the on poisiotn but dont start it. if you dont hear a humm sound coming from the gas tank area, your fuel pump needs to be replaced.
