From the ignition switch or the starter, power is taken fromeither of these points to fire the fuel pump on start. This is what charges the fuel system so that you can start. then your fuel pump goes into run mode.

If someone can make a power check on the wiring going to the fuel pump with the engine is being cranked, you can possibly solve your problem.

My 2000 lincoln ls wont start. It had a few rough starts and now won't start at all. No sound from fuel pump I checked relay, fuses, inertia switch and replaced the pumps. Still nothing.

It has a fuel pump control module that modulates the signal to the fuel pump ensure it is getting the proper powers and grounds as a rule of thumb we replace both in our shops when we do a fuel pump because both parts have a high falure rate with high milage. Check the inertia switch to ensure it has no been triped they are usually located in the trunk area but have been known to be on the pass side kick panel if triped it will not send power to fuel pump

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.

No power to fuel pump

Did you check the Inertia Switch in the trunk, power for the fuel pump goes to that, then the pump. Sometimes they will trip just by slamming the trunk lid.

Have 94 lincoln tc, won't start, have changed ecm, fuel pump, electronic dist. module. no fire to the fuel pump or to fuel pump relay. can anyone help.

If you do not have a Service manual, try Autozone or Oreillys for information about fusible links. The fuel pump relay gets its power from a fusible link.
Try entering the Security code on the door keypad to see if the Antitheft is working against you. Then try to start vehicle.

1999 lincoln fuel pump

My fuel pump on my 1998 Lincoln Continental has no power. I checked the fuse it is good. I checked the fuel shutoff switch it was fine. I have traced the wire from the fuel shutoff switch to the fuel module driver in the trunk. The wire has power. I have also traced the positve wire from the fuel pump to the fuel driver on a different terminal, this wire has no power from the pump. I also changed the fuel driver, the low fuel pressure switch, the alternator, and battery.does anyone have any suggestion's?
