Yes they are the same, the job of the fuel pump driver module is an electric voltage regulator that varies the voltage supplied to the fuel pump to slow it down, this makes it run very quietly and does away with the whine at idle that some people find annoying as I have found from personnel shop experience at the Ford dealer I worked for for 20 years..

    Then you will need to replace the fuel pump inside the fuel tank, the bearings are worn out and that is the noise you hear..

The fuel pump module would refer to the actual fuel pump assembly in the tank. The fuel pump driver module is what controls the fuel pump and should be under the passenger side of the rear seat.

My name is Francis, From Pretoria, South Africa.
I would like to ask some few questions please.... I have a 2007 Ford Focus ST.2.5, 6 speed Manuel. I bought the car from an Insurance salvage ..... After installing the Radiator which was out. i tried to start the car, it refuses to start, it just sounds like is about to start, then is not starting. I open the bonnet and check if the fuel will spins out as i would be trying to start it... Nothing came out. when i on turn the key no sound of the fuel pump then i went to the Real Right seat. and open it, I saw that the cable going inside the fuel tank which is connected to the fuel pump has a sockets which is not plug and it nothing was there. it looks like the fuel pump driver module was there and they stole it. i can see the other sockets half as they just pull out the module along with the cable. I have gone to Ford with my VIN for them to order the parts for me, they all seems not to know what i m looking for.... i have other Ford Focus ST of 2008 2009 2010 2011, there was nothing on that back seat... its just cables going inside the tank and out... Please i need help as i m already frustrated... Does any one have an Ideal of what i m talking about?

02 ford focus flooding so no start. I pull fuse an it will eventually start. But runs outta gas. Driver fuel module. Under seat?


Driver fuel module ???? Under the back seat ? The part your calling a driver fuel module is the fuel pump driver module ! What fuse do you pull ? If you would like help you need to go into more details . Your vehicle has electronic returnless fuel system (computer controlled ) Having the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes could shed some light on to the problem . There is a fuel pressure sensor on the fuel injector fuel rail ,this is a input to the PCM engine computer .The PCM talks to the FPDM -fuel pump driver module to speed up or slow down the fuel pump .

2008 Chrysler 300 2.7 fuel pressure regulator location


Hey Londell,
Hope this helps..tThis vehicle uses a saddle type tank a reservoir on both sides of the rear drive shaft. The fuel pump is in the module on the driver side of the vehicle and the fuel pressure regulator is in the module on the passenger side of vehicle. The fuel outlet is on the passenger side and supplies fuel to the engine. The fitting on the fuel pump module (Driver side) is a vapor line fitting that connects to the passenger side module. Both modules have fuel level sending cards. There are 2 hoses that connect the modules together one is the fuel supply line the other is a return or siphon hose. The lines are removed from the fuel pump module when servicing either unit. The ORVR (Onboard Refueling Vapor Recovery) control valve is in the passenger side module.

Fuel pump driver module


Look into the rear of the trunk behind the driver-side rear-passenger seat and pull back the carpeting. Locate a black, rectangular box that has a wiring harness plugged into the bottom of it. This is the fuel pump driver module.

  • Unbolt the module by loosening the two bolts holding it in place with a socket wrench. Disconnect the wires at the bottom of the module by simply squeezing the locking tabs on the wires and disengaging them from the module.

    WHERE IS THE FUEL PUMP DRIVER MODULE ON A 1997 LINCOLN TOWN CAR LOCATED--- NOT THE FUEL PUMP RELAY


    No driver module shown on the wiring diagram for 89-98 models.
    There is an EEC relay that powers the fuel pump relay. The fuel pump relay is grounded by the PCM. The voltage goes from the fuel pump relay thru the inertia switch and on to the pump.

    Try resetting fuel pump. I do believe the reset button is on the forward passengers side of vehicle. The button is behind the plastic shield. Reset once or twice. This hopefully will fix your problem. Look in your manual for exact placement of fuel pump reset button
