The parts which determine whether or not a vehicle "turns over" are the battery, starter and alternator (if there is one). The fuel pump has nothing at all whatever to do with that. As for the "cutting out", that could be a fuel pump or even a fuel filter problem. Could also be the carb or deterioration in the gas tank. Good luck. . .

Since you've replaced many of the usual suspects (fuel pump etc.) you might want to look into testing or simply replacing the crankshaft position sensor or the camshaft position sensor. If you intermittently lose one the these signals it would cause the problem you describe.

Hey Mudkicker,

Who ever thought of putting an electric fuel pump inside a tank of gas........

Check your other gauges for accuracy. They do that when a ground is loose.

Check the wiring from the fuel tank along the longitudinal frame for frays and shorts. Plugs are secured.

Under the hood, passenger side, check the fuel pump relay. Switch it with one of the others to test it.

Bring the vehicle to an auto parts store. Ask them to break out he code reader. Check for diag codes

Comment me back
Mike.

Could be one of several items...I'd check the fuel pump relay, auto shutdown relay and the ignition switch itself. I'd bet on it being one of those relays but, we all have been fooled at least once!!! I'd also make sure that body and engine grounding is good and clean. Relays can't work properly without a good ground.

Jeep cherokee 1995 cuts out at red lights and also


Try checking the fuel pressure first. If it is lower than what is recommended than the either the pump is a fault or quite possibly the filter. But if you suspect that the filter is at fault change the filter first because it will be a cheaper fix than the pump. But beware some of these filters are not changeable unless you do change the pump because some are incorporated with the pump.

Fuel ECU fuse keeps blowing (30 amp)


Your fuel pump is internally binding and causing the fuse to blow. Change the pump (and filter while you're back there.)

Verify fuse is correct size, then see what you are turning on else when it blows. Fuel pumps are designed to pump up then shut off, until needed when starting and running. It might not be shutting off and staying running when vehicle is not running. Make sure ground circuit is in good shape and positive side as well. Does this blow fuses when you go to start, or does it start and run for awhile then blow?
