Question about 1996 Mazda MX-6
Fuel pump doesn't run when ignition is turned on. jumper at diagnostic block pump runs. changed fuel filter-cap and rotar and still wont start. according to wiring diagram pump relay gets its power from pcm. fuses are all ok
You may need to run a wire from a keyed ignition source that has power while cranking and running to the fuel pump relay and bypass the pcm to test wether it will run, if it runs put a more permanent wire in place.Not too sure what tests youve done but it seems that fuel is what your focusing on so a quick test is too spray engine start up the intake tube to see if the engine trys to run if it does it eliminates a lot of other potential reasons for a no start condition.Also try squeezing the fuel return line to see if the added pressure will try to make engine run.Could be time to replace fuel pump etc anyway let me know how it goes good luck with it
