Fuse #10 keeps popping on my 2002 lincoln navigator. already installed new fuel pump and relay. any suggestions would be appreciated!


Go to Google and enter "2002 Lincoln Navigator fuse10". You will be able to look up everything for the electrical system by selecting the individual pages and clicking them.

What you would want to do is look up all the wiring "paths" to read if a component part may be shorting this fuse. When the individual components are eliminated as problems, then it must be a shorting wire. The plug-in connector for the fuelpump should be clean now, as you just had the fuelpump replaced.

What I would look for as a problem are the other wires going into the Fuelpump Relay. Only 2 wires of the 4 prongs or so will make the pump work. Could be #27 and #34. Look on internet for "jumping the fuelpump relay" on Ford products.

It would help to know if the fuse breaks when the vehicle is off, or when it is running. Reason being that the mentioned fuelpump Relay has 2 or more extra terminals that connect to other devices and they could be tested.

Finally, most people think about a Relay connecting the Positive(hot) wire to transfer power. The fact is, the Negative(neutral) wire is also used to route power and connect the coils inside Relays. When you get a short on a Negative wire, it can falsely activate a Relay coil to connect something. This also means that shutting off the car will not necessarily shut off the power.

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 1991 gmc jimmy


Thye fuelpump relay is located to the right of the brake booster. this is for a 1991 gmc jimmy (s-15)

I have enclosed a diagram to help locate the relay.

The most common reason for no fuel pressure on these trucks is not the relay but rather the fuelpump itself. the pump is located inside the fuel tank.

There is also a problem with the wiring to the fuel pump, you will need to locate the top of the tank and then off to side of tank is wiring .
This wiring comes off the top of the tank, you will need to check and there is connector problems..
there is one or two ground wires that come off wiring to top of tank which run to frame, check to make sure the grounds are good. if you end up with a bad pump you will see a notice to rewire a new fuelpump connector. hope this is helpful. good day.3_4_2012_1_29_16_am.gif

NEED TO KNOW WHERE THE FUEL PUMP RELAY SWITCH IS FOR A 1998 CHEVY S10 TRUCK...


For the 1998 s10 theres no fuelpump switch, there is a fuelpump relay. the relay is in the engine compartment inside the fuse/relay box. the relay will be labeled on the inside cover of the fuse/relay box cover. besides the relay the only other problem for a fuelpump not working on these trucks is the fuelpump is bad or the wiring connector to the pump is bad.

Im having fuel pump issues. could you please tell me where the fuel pump is located on a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am SE


The fuelpump is located inside the gas tank, you will need to drop the tank to replace the pump, heres a picture of the pump and in goes in through the top of the tank, the fuelpump is called a fuelpump module because it comes complete with holder sending unit and all other parts as you will see in the picture,hope this helps, good luck.johnjohn2_17.jpg

I have replaced the fuel pump amongst a lot of other things. I can spray gas or starting fluid in the throtal body and it will run rough untill the fumes ware out. Its a 1995 ford explorer 4x4 xlt


If you hear the fuelpump operate the first 1 or 2 seconds when the key is turned to RUN position, the fuelpump is working. If you do not hear the fuelpump run, check the Inertia switch which should be in the side panel of the rear cargo area. If you have an owners manual check for the Inertia switch location.

To reset the Inertia switch, hold the button on it for 2-3 seconds. You should now hear the pump run. You may also have a fuelpump relay under the hood in one of the Powerboxes. The Powerbox may have a fusible link from the Battery. When the fusible link is OK and the Pump Relay is OK, there is a fuse in the Fuse panel. Then finally the Ignition switch will trip the Pump relay. As power flows through the wire to the fuelpump the Inertia switch can break the power connection.

So you have 5 powerpoints before the fuelpump will work. Fusible link, Pump Relay, Fuse Panel, Ignition Switch,and Inertia switch. These must all work before the fuelpump can run.

I have a 1995 izuzu trooper.it won't start on its own it will start with starting fluid.i have replaced fuelpump.ecm.fuelpump won't come on with key.it comes on when i put a hot wire to the fuse.i also...


TRY REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP RELAY. THIS SHOULD SEND POWER TO THE PUMP. IF NOT, THEN CHECK THE WIRING HARNESS NEAR THE FUEL TANK. I HOPE THIS HELPS. P.S.: IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, THE PCM IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FUEL PUMP OPERATION. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. GOOD LUCK
