If everything is functioning, it should be okay. The fuel pump relay derives it's ground connection for the relay coil through the switch- you should have 2 of them- 1 for the fuel pump and 1 for the gauge or dash warning light.

if one was cut off, it is likely that the cut wire has been spliced to the one wire that is connected. Sometimes the temporary priming initiated by the ECU at startup was connected there.

1998 jeep wrangler.will start fine for a day or two then will not start, I leave it for a short time and it starts. I have cheched the red wire going to the coil and I'm getting no power to the coil. Also...

Just a few things to check...... Is there oil pressure showing when you crank the motor? Some of the computer systems will cut power to the igntion system if no pressure is sensed, the sender may be faulty.
They are also known to corrode inside the battery cables which would cause many odd things, as you stated when you disconnect & reconnect the battery it works= check these good. also is the battery ok?
Another possibilty is the igntion switch is faulty. Hope this will lead you to the cause.

My car turns over starts then cuts off

The fuel pump operates off two items upon starting the car. When you first turn the key to the ON position you can hear the fuel pump faintly running inside the fuel tank. If you can not hear it it seems it is working for you stated the engine starts then cuts off. That tells me the engines oil pressure switch is working the fuel pump. On the oil pressure switch this switch has a third wire which is directed to the fuel pump. When the engine reaches full oil pressure the computer shuts off the signal from the oil pressure switch and then the computer turns on the fuel pump relay which stays on until you shut the engine off. I do beleive the fuel pump relay is what you need for it is not working no longer. This will have many relays with the same part number on it. You can easily swap any relay that looks the same with the same numbers on it and try it once to see if the engine stays running.

Car start up puts then cuts off as if its not

The fuel pump relay is at fault. Upon starting the engine the fuel pump is feed by the engines oil pressure switch. Once the engines oil pressure is reached to operating pressure the computer shuts off the voltage from the oil pressure switch and turns on the fuel pump relay intill you shut the engine off.
The oil pressure switch has three wires to it. Two are for the oil pressure sinals sent to your dash. The third one is for the fuel pump. It may sound confusing although this system is used by nearly all manufacturers of vehicles

Need to change the oil pressure sqitch on a vw passat

Hi before you do an oil change try seafoam in the engine oil. this can sometimes fix the problems you are having, I used seafoam in engine oil and fuel and breather line and ran engine for 100 miles, but don't run hard, and its cleaned all the sump and oil veins in the engine, as checked with a scope looking though the oil sump plug. it did a really good job, my engine is a bit older than yours 1994. oil sensor is at the bottom of the engine on the sump. pressure sensor is above the oil filter it has a single wire conection

Oil pressure gage drops unexpectedly and fips back up. Has had a recent oil change.

The first thing I would check is the wiring to the oil pressure sending unit. It is most likely located in the oil filter mount or somewhere in that area. Chances are, the small wiring harness may have been bumped loose or cracked recently when the oil was changed. It all looks well with the wiring, consider changing the sending unit. Hope this helps!
