First you would check for fuel pressure. If there is none than you would check for power to the pump. if there is power than check to make sure there is a good ground. If those check out than the pump is bad.

the fuel tank will first need to be removed from the vehicle in order to service the fuel pump module.

Check your timing belt by carefully removing the timing belt pulley cover to the left of the valve cover. The valve cover houses the spark plugs. You should be able to flash a flashlight down and see your timing belt. Most likely, you have a timing belt going, or a shaving stuck in your VCT solenoid. I'm guessing the belt is worn and has slipped a tooth or two. I would take caution driving it as it's been disputed that it could be an interference engine, and you could do serious damage to your vehicle.

1996 ford contour needs to be recalled. Dome lite and brake lites stay on when door is closed causing battery to drain prematurely.


If the experts told Dan to get rid of the car, then I am in total agreement !
I walked into a Ford garage a few years back to get some advice on a friend's Contour I was putting a timing belt on. I talked for a bit with a mechanic there, and it seemed all the ford mechanics there were pretty much in agreement that the Ford Contour was one poorly designed and executed product that they'd rather not see come in their shop. Expensive to repair and often made the owners mad from all the hassle.

Attend to one of the door switches for the dome light, and see if the brake switch on the brake pedal can be adjusted. IDK, do these models have a body control module? I hope not for your sake. (Trade it off!)

My svt's rear brakes never fully releases? You can


Try removing the drums and checking the mechanism. It could be that dust from the brakelinings is preventing free operation of the brake pads.
Clean out the drums and if the brake pads appear to be stuck a light thump with a hide mallet should release the sticking.

I have a 1998 Ford contour SVT and I pulled it into the garage last night and it will not start now. Any ideas??


the most probable cause is that the electric fuel pump has failed, to confirm this get a can of spray starting fluid and spray some into the air intake hose of the engine, if it starts u need a new fuel pump.
