2001 Focus parked about 9 months fuses & relays are good change fuel filter battery is good will crank drains battery started with starting fluid can hear the fuel pump kick in cleaned the dsfm


You have not mentioned whether you do a OBD fault code test on this, if not do that and post the results. Also jumper the fuel pump relay socket under the hood so it stays on all the time, you could have a defective starter switch, in this scenario the fuel pump is powered up as long as the engine is cranking, but as soon as the key is released to run position it shuts off.

Put on new fuel pump got pressuer but want stay cranked


Your post is lacking any detail. However, if you are stating that the engine starts after being cranked but dies out (wont stay running) there are 2 ways the fuel pump is activated. When the key is first turned on, there is a 5 second fuel pump run (the ECM energizes the fuel pump relay). After the engine starts, the fuel pump relay will only stay energized when the oil pressure switch closes keeping the fuel pump relay on (oil pressure is above 5-7 psi). If the oil pressure switch is faulty or there is no oil pressure, the engine will stall just after starting.

Vehicle ( Hyundai Accent ) start but quit after 10 seconds. For this problem we replaced ECM & Engine wiring Harness also fuel pump but problem was not solved pl guide


Find the fuel pump relay, connect across the contacts from B+ to the fuel pump. This will make the pump run continuously. see if the engine stays running. It may be a bad relay or a relay feed circuit which is also run the the auto shut down switch. Lee

Car turns on for 5 to 8 seconds and turns off will not stay on?


You will need a new fuel pump relay to keep the engine running. The prime switch for the fuel pump operates fine for it starts the engine and once the oil pressure is up to snuff the computer shuts the prime switch off and turns on the fuel pump relay till you shut the engine off

I dropped the fuel tank to drain old gas.I put new gas in and turned engine to start it didnt start. Should I be able to hear fuel pump if it is working?This is for a 1990 ford e-150 van.Also where the is...


Turn the key to the ON position without starting the engine. You should hear the fuel pump running for 5 seconds if working. This primes the gas to the injectors when doing this. If not heard running check the oil pressure switch for the 12 volts needed to run the fuel pump starts there on that harness. When the engine starts and the oil pressure reaches the normal pressure the computer shuts off that circuit and turns on the fuel pump relay to run the pump. The relay stays on till you shut the engine off

My car turns over starts then cuts off


The fuel pump operates off two items upon starting the car. When you first turn the key to the ON position you can hear the fuel pump faintly running inside the fuel tank. If you can not hear it it seems it is working for you stated the engine starts then cuts off. That tells me the engines oil pressure switch is working the fuel pump. On the oil pressure switch this switch has a third wire which is directed to the fuel pump. When the engine reaches full oil pressure the computer shuts off the signal from the oil pressure switch and then the computer turns on the fuel pump relay which stays on until you shut the engine off. I do beleive the fuel pump relay is what you need for it is not working no longer. This will have many relays with the same part number on it. You can easily swap any relay that looks the same with the same numbers on it and try it once to see if the engine stays running.
