Help solve relay buzzing

Can here a relay buzzing when key is out of the ignition switch. Located noise under hood in fuse box . Pulled a 4 pin micro relay out and the buzzing stops. Engine will turn over but not start without this relay. Maybe the fuel pump relay. Swapped the relay with another identical one and still get the buzzing from this same place. Van starts and runs great but this buzzing I think is the beginning of more serious problems.

SOURCE: 2005 Chevy express Fuel pump relay meltdown 6.0L

The horn relay was shorting out but not activating the horn. When you swapped it out it sounds like the fuel pump was running all night killing the battery. It sounds like the relay had a dead short inside and melted itself to the fuse box. Depending on the extent of the damage you might have to replace the fuse box as well as the relays.

SOURCE: Intermittent fuel pump engagement when turning key - 2001 Taurus

try cleaning the connector that goes to the fuel pump, sometimes they corrode on inside. If that does not fix, test the wires feeding fuel pump with a multi meter until the condition shows itself again, if voltage drops to zero or very low then wiring problem, if voltage is unchanged with problem and fuel pump is not working and connectors are all clean, try replacement of fuel pump.

If it is a single click, the problem lies in the starter solenoid or relay. If it is several clicks in succession, the battery may be low or there may be a loose cable. ---------- also try this :-- Please make sure the battery is fully charged before doing this test! Also make sure all the connections on the starter, battery and cable ends are tight and clean! this is important!! This won't be fun to test but it will tell you if the starter is good or not. Crawl under the car. (Make sure you use the proper jacks and jack stands!) find the end of the starter (not the end that is attached to the bell housing) and find the solenoid switch. it should have 3 bolts on it. Two large ones and a small one. The top large wire should be the positive battery cable, the bottom large wire should go into the starter and the small wire should be from the ignition switch. Take a wire and hold it to the top large wire on the solenoid. (be careful of the other end of that wire when you have it connected to the top large wire of the solenoid! don't ground this wire. it will turn out badly. take the other end of the wire and touch it to the small bolt on the solenoid end. If the starter is working, the solenoid should engage and the starter will turn. If this happens it is most likely the ignition switch. If the starter doesn't turn, the starter could be bad. ==== Starter Relay Test
Place transmission in Park.
Apply parking brake.
Check for battery voltage between starter relay battery terminal and ground.
Connect jumper wire on starter relay between battery and ignition terminals.
If engine does not crank, connect a second jumper wire to starter relay between ground terminal and good ground and repeat test.
If engine cranks in step 3, transmission linkage is misadjusted or neutral safety switch is defective.
If engine does not crank in step 3, starter relay is defective.
Follow this step by step and you will pinpoint the problem.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

make sure you have spark, sometimes if you start bypassing stuff the ignition works only on a resistor to much electricity and it won't work, not enough and it won't work.

Replacing a fuse engine wont start 2005 hummer h2


Is the anti-theft light lit on the instrument cluster ? Won't start how ? When you turn the key to start , what happens ? Nothing ? This would be a No crank - no start condition . Now if you turn the key to start and the starter engages and spins the engine and it doesn't start an run , this is a engine cranks no start condition ! Now which is your problem ?

There are two fuse's IGN A fuse 40amp and IGN E fuse 10amp ,both are located in the under hood fuse/relay box . Also there is starter relay located in the same under hood fuse /relay box . There also is a crank fuse 10amp in the under hood fuse box . Besides the fuse's and relay ,the ignition switch or the PNP - park neutral position switch could be bad . Testing the whole starter circuit should be done ! How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit

2001 Chevy blazer came out one day and it was dinging as if my key was in it got it to start with a jump shut it off took battery out and charged it put it back in when I turn the key I get NOTHING!


Check power an grounds for ignition switch , voltage drop test the starter circuit . Go to youtube an check out videos on basic electrical trouble shooting , voltage drop testing ,how to read a wiring diagram .Then go here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html free wiring diagram ! Look at power distribution under electrical distribution . Check main fuse's Maxi fuse's that power the ignition switch ,IGN.C fuse 20amp in underhood fuse box ,then check crank fuse 10amp in same fuse box .Check the starter relay in the under hood fuse box . Check the circuit form ignition switch to the starter relay , pull the relay out an look on the bottom you should see 4 set's of numbers 30 - 87 - 85 - 86 . Pin 30 or 87 should have battery voltage ,one or the other ,not both . if you jump those two at the base (where it plugs in ) not the relay pins . It should crank the engine ( if starter is good an there are no opens in the circuit ) Pin's 85 an 86 are the control side of the relay ! You may want to check out videos on how a relay works also > Good luck hope this helps

Where is starter cable under dash of 2000 Buick lesabre


There is no starter cable under the dash ! there is a small gage wire that goes from the ignition switch to the PCM - engine computer . When turning the key to the start position a small amount of voltage to the PCM is a signal for it to energize the start 1 relay in the under hood fuse/relay box . At the ignition switch ,connector 2 , pin B a yellow wire is this discrete voltage signal to the PCM .At the PCM this wire is at Connector-2 pin 23 . You can check for continuity with an ohm meter . Do you know what a relay is , find the start 1 relay in the under hood fuse/relay center ! You can test for power an control of the starter motor circuit ! VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis If you had a professional grade scan tool you could view the ignition switch input to the PCM an energize the start relay in the special functions of the scan tool .

Wuen i turn off the ignition switch and i pull out the key the sound indicates that still you have the key inside of the ignition is still on.how can i get that soun off?


mcdevito75 here, The key completes a warning circut in the off position of the ignition switch, this buzzing sound is a relay usually in the fuse box, find the fuse box, leave the key in the switch, listen and locate the buzzing sound and remove the relay from the fuse box, this relay may also be alone just under and around the steering column.

Have a 96 ford f250,cannot get fuel to carburator,wheres fuel relay and how do i solve my problem


First you'll want to check all your fuses in the interior fuse panel and replace any that are questionable. the fuel pump relay is located under the hood, sometimes mounted on the firewall but usually located in the main fuse box under the hood. After checking the fuses, put your keys in the ignition and turn it to K>O>E>O. Key On Engine Off, and listen to see if you hear the in tank fuel pump start buzzing and then cut off. It doesn't stay on at that point, it's just pressuring up the fuel system preparing to start. It might take a couple of times until you hear it. If you don't hear anything at all, and your fuses are good, Your in tank fuel pump is the more likely the culprit. It's about due for one being that its 13 years old. Merry Christmas.

Fans stays running even when keys are out of ignition


Ok. that makes more sense. the relay should be in the fuse box under the hood. it should have a diagram under the cover to help you locate it. that is most likely the problem.

Electric windows do not work


You have 2 fuse feeds in battery junction box under hood.Fuse 6(60amp) and fuse 62(30amp) and one fuse in the interior fuse panel no. 17(15amp).
How the system works is fuse 6 feeds fuse 62 which feeds the switch side of the accessory delay relay which is located in the interior fuse panel. Fuse 17 feeds the coil side of the relay and the instrument cluster micro-processor grounds the coil side of the relay.
When coil side of relay is grounded it creates a magnetic field which pulls the switch side closed which then lets power flow to the master window switch on the LB/BK wire on pin 6. The ground for the master switch is G400 which is the BK wire on pin 2 and G400 is located in the left rear quarter panel next to the tail lamp assembly.

Hope this helps.
