    Does it pump fuel when tested? It seems to me like it ought to have at least 12 volts at the pump.

I would check voltage at the fuel pump relay, and check for resistance in the wirring from relay to pump. It is common for a fuel pump develope a dead spot as you describe it. Is what actually happens most of the time is that the pump gets week enough so that it will not start with fuel pressure load and run fine without load. Can not say for shure weather your fuel pump is bad or not as I do not Know What led you to the conclusion that it was not working. If you are confident that lack of fuel pressure was your trouble I would bet the fuel pump is the problem.

1996 mercury villager / pump wont run


The only way to actually check as you said,which means
using at least a volt meter to me, to do actual voltage checks,
is to have a wiring diagram of the system & circuits your have
problems with

The pump works,so I guess you put battery voltage to it
somewhere in the circuit that is complete or at the pump

No voltage at whatever fuses your at,you now work your way
to the battery with the use of a wiring diagram

Sounds like a corrosion or wiring connection issues, given the
year 1996

What I don't see in your question is the main issue
Sounds like you went from the pump back toward the
fuses & battery & the beginning of the fuel pump circuit is
dead

I guess you removed & tested the relays (component tested)

Haven't missed much,just have to continue, but can't find &
test what you don't know about,need that reference material

Dodge 1500 1995 pickup 7.5 volts to fuel pumpwill not start applied 12 volts pump runs book sayes pcm de-energize booth relayes and will not send proper voltage to fuel pump


There is a red and white wire feeding the fuel pump relay from a 30 amp fuse. Both the shutdown relay and the fuel pump relay are grounded by the PCM, so if the fuel pump relay is grounded it should be "on" and providing a direct link from the pump to that fuse.
You should have battery voltage on that 30 amp wire before the relay and then on the dark green and black wire going to the pump.
If you don't have battery voltage coming from the 30 amp fuse, the problem could be before the fuse.
That 30 amp fuse is hot all the time, so it is powered by a fuseable link coming off the battery.

2002 GMC Sierra 1500 fuel system


first off do not use a test light. use a circuit tester. what you saw as 5volts is called a reference signal. the cars computer(much like your home computer)works only off 5 volts. if you use a test light(the old kind with a light bulb.)you will fry the computer. second, are you saying the problem is still occuring after these parts have been changed?

How to check electrical problems whit the fuel pump


first turn the key on and listen for the fuel pump to come on for 15 sec.this is to prime the system before you crank the engine.no sound,with only a rubber mallet( no metal hammers )hit the bottom of the gas tank,no fuel pump operating go to the fuel pump relay and remove then test for (2) 12 volt power supplies with key on,if ok check ground at relay if okay remove gas from tank and drop gas tank to check for voltage at pump.replace pump if 12 volts is present.

No power to my fuel pump on a 1996 dodge ram 1500


The power to the fuelpump comes from the ignition switch to the pump check for power (testlight lights up) with the testlight clip grounded at these locations.
to check the fuel pump it's self:
use a 20 foot long 18 gauge inline fused test wire from the positive battery post to the pump
