    I do not want to waste your time, I know I can solve this but unfortunately without a schematic of that circuit I can't. If you can read a manual I can't point you in the right direction for help

Disconnect wiring to pump. install new fuse for the pump and turn over ignition. the car wont start because the fuel pump wiring is diconnected. check the fuse to the fuel pump, if the fuse did not blow when the pump is disconnected it is a faulty fuel pump. I read this somewhere and a garage is up to 850 dollars in parts and labor only to offer me more parts and labor not relevent to my problem. I am towing it home and running this test my self.

2004 pt cruiser keeps blowing fuel pump fuse,replaced fuel pump, no change.runs rough at idle and stalls,blows fp fuse,also replaced ign.coil,plug wires and plugs also changed relays


There are two fuses for the fuel pump relay. One fuse is load side of relay, that fuse also sends voltage to load side of asd relay, the asd relay sends voltage to several systems, two of which are the fuel injectors and ignition coil. I'm not telling you to replace, anything, but, you need to do some testing.
The other fuse goes to control side of relay, smaller amp fuse. I don't know the amp rating of the fuse that keeps blowing.
See that fuse, it supplies voltage to load side of fuel pump relay and also to asd relay.

2004 ford explorer when you turn the switch on the fuel pump fuse blows . i un pluged fuel pump it still blows . i went and un pluged fuel control module and it doest blow


Unplugging the fuel control relay or module will ensure no current is entering the wire heading towards the fuel pump. The likelihood is there is a short circuit somewhere along that part of the circuit though it is possible the relay could be faulty.

Ideally, with the aid of a circuit diagram, the wire should be traced from the source at the fuel pump module along its length until the fault is discovered. There is intelligent equipment available that can locate short circuits.

1999 ford super duty relay coil keeps blowing fuse. truck wont start. why?


Some of those trucks had a heater coil in the fuel filter bowl. It would short out and blow the fuse . Try unplugging the wire just behind the bowl ,and replace the fuse again. that may fix the problem.

Caprice classic 1991 model fuel pump will not come on. fuse mounted underhood next to ABS relay blows upon contact with circuit


e fuel pump motor may have failed, causing a short and blowing the fuse. Try unplugging the fuel pump connector at the pump, then turn key on with a new fuse in place. If the fuse blows again, it could be a short in the pump's wiring. If the fuse doesn't blow, it is likely a bad pump.

Keeps blowing fuel pump fuse. Why?


This normally happens due to short in the wirings.Or if someone has connected a stereo or some other electrical contrivance to the wiring harness (bundle), either under the dash or under the hood.To confirm this unplug the fuel pump wiring connections and insert new fuse.Then start the car and see,if still the fuse blows then its a short in wiring.But if the fuse does not blows then its faulty fuel pump relay or faulty fuel pump itself.So first replace the fuel pump relay and see,if the fuel still blows then its faulty fuel pump.But if the fuse not blowing then relay was the faulty part.The fuel pump relay located on the fuse box under the hood.---------This troubleshooting tips will help you locate the fault and solve it.-------Thanks.Helpmech.

97f350 fuse blowing to glow plugs how do i unplug the fuel warmer


You will need to check all the glow plugs for resistance. Most likely one melted and is shorted.

First unplug them all and see if the fuse blows. If they still blow then you have a wire shorted somewhere. If they dont then keep pluging the glow plus back in until you find the one that pops. The resistance on that one will be 0 which would indicate a short.

Fuel stopped working, no fire to spark plugs


When I hear no fuel or fire I always think of ignition module first. The moudule tells the coil when to fire, and if you don't have fire at the plugs then the fuel pump won't run due to saftey issue. Take your module in to parts store and they will test for free.
