Question about 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer
Checked all fusses and traced wiring but can't find problem
Try metering the wires to the fuel pump first with a voltage meter. If you're getting no voltage whatsoever, locate the fuel relay. Somewhere along the firewall should be at least 2 relays mounted. One of these should be the fuel relay. Meter the wires going in to the fuel relay, the the wires coming out of it. If you have voltage on the wires going to the relay, but not going from the relay to the fuel pump, then you'll have to replace the fuel relay. They're usually inexpensive at most local parts stores--usually never more than $20-25. If you have voltage on both ends of the relay, it's possible that the emergency fuel-cut-off switch has been tripped. You may have to refer to a manual to find the actual location of this switch, but on most vehicles, it's usually in an access panel in the trunk around the wheel-well on the side that your fuel door is on. If it has been tripped, all you have to do is reset the switch (Usually just have to pull the switch out...you'll understand once you locate it. Hopefully this solves your issue.
