1999 Voyager 3.3L: EATX SHUTDOWN RELAY

The EATX SHUTDOWN RELAY makes a tapping sound and the engine will not start. 
Also, sounds like the fuel pump is making noise. 
The starter now doesn't even engage, as if it's not getting the signal to do so.  (The starter is "new" (i.e., less than 2000 miles from Mopar.) The starter was working fine this morning until the relay and fuel pump started making noise, as well as the engine light started flashing.
Lots of problems. I think it stems from one issue (I hope). Hopefully it's organized enough to give some pointers.

    The car has not being used for two months. When I tried to start it, no battery. When put another battery, EATX Shutdown Relay was making a weird sound. If I remove it, the sound stops. But the engine doesn't start anyway. What can I do?

    so the van will turn over but not start. The error code says auto shutdown relay and fan relay. We put in new relays and the code says the same thing. We have replaced the fuel pump. The battery is good and so is the starter. We unplugged the map sensor and it still won't start. What to do now?

    the internal codes read faulty relay for auto shutdown and fan. We replaced them and the codes still read the same. the van will turn over but not start. We have replaced the fuel pump, filter, air filter and fuses. the battery is fine and the starter good. we unplugged the map sensor and it still wouldn't start. we are at the end of what to test or replace.

It might not be the relay you are hearing, but the electronic fuel pump (located in the gas tank....yeh!!!) turning on and off. Have you had this checked out??

    check to make sure the small black wire that runs to the negative battery terminal is connected properly and corrosion free it will cause this issue/ hope this helped

I shut the engine off. tried restarting, failed to do so, seems like not getting fuel. Is there a fuse for the fuel pump. It was on empty and I did add 1.5 ga gas


When you shut the engine off then it was not out of gas and there is a fuel fuse in the fuse panel and a fuse relay in the engine compartment. The fuse and relay box is always near the battery. It sounds like by the information I gathered so far is the fuel pump was sucking most of bottom gas which is always dirty gas and probably plugged the fuel filter. Make sure the to have someone listen if the fuel pump works by listening under the fuel tank while the ignition is turned on but not the starter.
1. Listen for a humming noise near the tank while someone turns the key on.
2. If the fuel pump makes is on then its your fuel filter.
3. If no sound then its your fuel pump. Start with the fuses then your relays and if they are all in working then its time to change your fuel pump.
( note: sometimes its just the way the car is sitting and tilting where all the fuel is unreachable for the pump and you might have to put more gas.) Hope this works. Cam

Sometimes will not turn over. I have been told it maybe the fuel pump going, but I also have a noise in the glove box (which sounds like my blinker is on) Could that relay in there have anything to do...


The fuel pump will not have anything to do with the engine turning over,but it will have to do with the engine not starting,and running,the starter on these have problems,they have contacts,instead of brushes,so you can tap lightly on them with a hammer while you try and start it,and it might start,and then replace the starter,if this was helpful,please let us know ,please rate thank you.
