Question about 1996 Ford F150 Regular Cab
One night after work i parked my truck like i always do in the drive way. The next morning it would not start at all. My uncle said it was getting really weak fire so i replaced the distributor cap and rotor. Still would not start so I replaced the fuel pump and I still cant hear the pump come on when I turn the Key. My fuses and relays seem to be good and i checked the inertia cut off **** under the passenger dash board. any other ideas???
If the fuses and relays are good, inertia switch isn't switched, and the pump is good, I'd say check the connections at the pump for any corrosion/dirt and make sure that the connections are tight and installed the correct way (if there is a way to possibly put them on the wrong way). If you check them, it couldn't hurt to put some dielectric grease on the connections to seal them. After that, check the wiring as best you can from the pump to the relays (I am pretty sure that's where they go). Also, try to find the ground and make sure that is not corroded and or loose.
