Just go under you hood and chang out the fuse for the fuel. When I had the problem i changed it out and it cost me $4.00 not sure where you location is so you might spend me but not much more I would think.

the left side there is a fuse fuel pump relay and on the right there is one called fuel system.
When I had the problem my ford explore would help its self when it wanted to start. Well I have kids that I have not time to Way for. Have a great time and hope that you have every thing work out let me know if It works.

I just replaced the fuel pump in my 1996 explorer and fuel filter and put 5 gals of gas back in the tank now the fuel guage is registering full and will not work


Eewww. That's not good. And you're not going to like what I say. I think you bent the fuel gauge sender unit, or misaligned something when you put it back in tank. Try unplugging the connector and plugging it back in. See if that helps the gauge to register right. Here's a quick check to see if your dash gauge is working right: Unplug connector again at tank and use a jumper wire to ground the dash gauge sender wire. With key turned to on and the fuel gauge wire grounded, the gauge should jump up to half or full. If it does, there's a problem with your sender unit in the tank.

1996 F150. Got a new battery, tank is full of gas. Would not even turn over until I got a new battery Now it turns over but no starting. Started first time every time until the weather dipped down below...


might be a bad crank sensor-they go bad all the time on Fords (4.6, right?)-unplug it, and plug it back in again, it might start right up, worth a try.

1996 Explorer ran fine then wouldn't start one day. Tries to turn over but won't catch. Tried jumping, that doesn't work. PCM relay and fuel pump relay are both fine, assumed it was the fuel pump. Replaced...


The fuel pump wires are positive: pink/black and negative=black. Pull the connector, turn the key on, and check these with a test light. Your pump power runs through the PCM.

Where is the ignition switch on a 1997 ford


if it is making a rapid clicking sound while trying to start it, your battery is not fine. you can try to jump it. hook up the cables properly and allow the vehicle to sit for about 3-5 minutes. allow the "jumping" vehicle to just idle. reving the engine will not do anything.

Only make right turns! Only kidding! Have you hit a bump lately? Ford uses an Inertia switch to cut off fuel flow when triggered.Have that checked and reset.

Do you have a keyless entry? You could try to enter your vehicle using the keypad on the drivers side door, This should turn off the anti-theft security.
