Question about 1987 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

I can't find the sensor for the fuel pump

I put a new fuel pump in but it only works if I hook it up direct to a separate battery. Think it is the sensor but can't figure out which one or where it is. Can you assist?

Start but quit running. i put a new fuel pump on it and a new fuel pressure regulator on it to. what do you think the promblem is

What make , model and year vehicle ? It makes a difference . It does start but stops running right away ? Before replacing the pump and regulator did you do a fuel pressure test ? Hooking up a fuel pressure gauge ? Or just guessing that was the problem ? And did your test the electrical circuit of the fuel pump ?

No fuel pressure and no spark

Fuel and spark circuits tend to be separate. A faulty crank and/or cam sensor will stop the spark and injection signal but unlikely, I think, that it will completely stop the fuel pump.

I am wondering if the immobiliser is disengaging?
A friend with a Kia once left his keys on the kitchen microwave with a similar effect. Fortunately the car was almost new and the dealer took pity on him and reprogrammed the system free of charge.

I suggest you check the fuses. There is sometimes several associated with engine management, fuel pump and suchlike.

30amp auto shutdown fuse blows is it alternater

The ASD relay supplies battery voltage (12+ volts) to the fuel injectors and ignition coil(s). With certain emissions packages it also supplies 12-volts to the oxygen sensor heating elements. The Fuel Pump Relay is a separate relay controlled by the ASD relay input to the PCM. Fuse #12 (10amp) provides 12 volts to the coil side of both the relays and the ignition switch. Fuse #6 (30 amps) supplies 12 volts to the output side of the relay. Fuse #16 (15 amp) from the relay output to the Oxygen Sensors and Fuse #26 (15 amp) relay output to the PCM. Fuse #24 (20 amp) is Fuel pump relay output to fuel pump. Fuse #19 (10 amp) supplies 12 volts direct to the PCM.
look for burned or melted wires in the offending circuit.
sounds like you wiggled a wire while installing new relay.

Some times the fuel pump doesnt work

Try running a separate power wire from the battery direct to the pump. If this cures the problem then splice it into a wire that has power when the key is on and put an in-line fuse in it. Hope this helps.

I have a 2000 Kia Sephia. that will start and then die. New starter, alternator and battery. Any thoughts?

well if it is cranking its not starter or battery . maybe check to see if fuel pump is working .check fuses. you should be able to hear pump run for a few second . if pump working maybe fuel filter or sensor like throttle position ,air idle sensor. make sure all wires are hooked up on alternator & starter . no vacuum hoses off any where . is check engine light on ?

Im not getting fuel up from toan put new realeys in and pump and still not working and hooked it up direct and wont start

When you say you hooked it up direct, do you mean you by-passed the relay? Have you actually tested the pump itself? My son owned two of these trucks, and on both the wiring to the fuel pump rusted off at the connection to the pump inside the tank.

I replaced fuel pump and fuel filter but car still wont start. it will only crank if i keep putting starting fluid in it. what would be the problem?

bad fuel pump, loose wiring, blown fuse, or bad fuel pump relay. don't think just because a fuel pump is brand new out of the box it's good. i got an A/C delco fuel pump, installed it in the customers truck tried to start it .... nothing. checked all wiring, grounds, fuse, relay etc. everything was good. pulled the pump back out of the tank and wired it direct to a battery and it did nothing. got another pump installed worked just fine.

The engine in my Dodge pickup,diesel cummins, won't start,it has fuel, the manifold heater isn't working and the lift pump isn't working anymore, both were working when we started working on it. I...

The fuel heater is connected with the fuel pump, if it does not work, the fuel pump won't pump. Manifold heater has separate relays, fuse, and selenoids which are under the driver battery. If you have been working on it a lot make sure the battery is charged up.

1984 Rabit loses power while going up an incline

Fuel pump and injectors are plugged. Any time a car sets with gas in it the gas separates and will varnish the fuel pump and injectors and possibly cause a fire just like a Vette I had to work on had the same problem. That means new fuel pump and filter and possibly injectors.

Have a 1992 chevy 1500 truck fuel pump works fine when hooked directly to the battery, replaced fuel pump relay, still no power to the fuel pump, engine turns over fine

maybe check the fuse for the injectors...i was being stupid and did this, if that fuse is missing it wont work even if your fuel pump works fine. i think its labeled inj a+b.
