    SOURCE: battery good power to the starter 2000 ford

    #1 Try starting the car in Neutral, if no start replace the Park and Neutral safty switch. #2 Check for a faulty starter solenoid. #3 Check for a faulty stsrter motor. #4 Check for a faulty ignition switch. #5 Check for faulty starter Relays.#6 Check the Transmission Range sensor it could be out of adjustment or defective. #7 On 1998 and later models, the power relay is in the power distribution box in the engine compartment. Refer to your owners manual for more information on relay location. Good Luck From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada.

    SOURCE: 2001 Ford taurus #22 fuse (A/C clutch relay PCM

    Remember that when you THINK the AC's off,it's really not.Almost all cars have the AC compressor actuate every time you set the dial to `defrost' or `mix' positions.
    On a TAURUS there are only two positions(maybe three)which DON'T kick the AC on.On some cars,that's the 11 o'clock and 2 o'clock positions on the selector.

    SO...........the odds are that the compressor magnetic clutch or wiring to it has shorted.Because you really have power going there even when you think you don't. (:^) don-ohio

    My pcm fuse blows every time i turn on the switch but if a remove my fuel pump relay switch the pcm fuse does not blow 03 alvalanche


    fuel pump is bad,your relay will be also from trying to start pump.there is an outside chance your relay is bad,easier to change that first

    Blown fuse pcm


    It is possible that the fuel relay is faulty and causing excessive current through the pcm fuse which is blowing because of the excessive current draw to the relay.

    Fuel pump not getting signal from PCM


    First make sure all grounds are good. There is a ground going from the pcm to the engine. Many chevy engines had a pcm ground connected to the thermostat bolt. Not sure about the Saturn. A common problem is that someone replaces the thermostat, and forgets to reattach the ground, or to tighten the ground securely. If the car was worked on recently, I would suspect a loose ground.

    CHECK MODE RELAY IF BOTH RELAYS GOOD YOU CAN CHECK RELAY BY REMOVING IT FROM FUSE BOX HOOK RELAY TERMINAL 85 TO BATTERY POSITIVE AND GROUND TERMINAL 86 IF CLICKS RELAY GOOD. IF RELAY GETTING POWER GOOD AND THE 30 AMP COOLING FAN FUSE OKAY.EITHER THERE IS A SHORT IN COOLING FAN WIRING OR THE PCM HAS FAILED.THE PCM HAS LOST OR COMMAND RUN CIRCUIT IN PCM SHORTED OUT DUE TO PCM FAILURE.LET DEALERSHIP OR GARAGE USE DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT TO ACTIVATE THE PCM SEE IF IT HAS FAILED.DONT SPEND MONEY ON NEW PCM COULD BE SHORT IN THE WIRING CIRCUIT

    Not getting fire to the fuel pump shut-off switch.


    Hi, first check fuses 28 and 34 in the box under the hood. If the fuses are good, use a 12 volt test light or voltmeter to see if there is battery voltage at fuse 34. If there is voltage at the fuse, the problem is likely the fuel pump relay in the interior fuse box, but could be the ground signal/wire from the PCM. If there is no voltage at the fuse, check the socket of the PCM power relay. Pull the relay out, connect your test light clip to chassis ground, and probe the terminals in the relay socket. There should be one hot terminal with the key off and 2 hot terminals with the key on. If not, the PCM diode may be bad. Please let me know the outcome of your tests or if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

    Shorted out one of the fuel injector wires,and now my fuel pump isn't working,checked the fuses,none are blown,any ideas,other fuses or fuse link?thanks,


    The fuel injectors receive their power from the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) Power Relay which is located in the Engine Compartment Fuse Box. This circuit is protected by Fuse "I" (20 Amp), also located in the Engine Compartment Fuse Box. If you blew a fuse, this would be the one.
    The fuel pump, however, is a totally different circuit. (although it is controlled by the PCM which will not work if the fuse above is blown) The fuel pump gets its power from the fuel pump relay which is protected by Fuse "O" (20 Amp) in the Engine Compartment Relay Box.

    My fan wont work.when the engine is hot.


    First check the fuse in the engine compartment relay box. If not the fuse, you will need a 12 volt test light (or voltmeter) to troubleshoot, as there are several possible reasons. With the engine hot and running, pull the connector off the fan and use your test light to see if there is voltage in the connector. If there is voltage, replace the motor. In no voltage, move on to the relay. pull the relay out of the socket (in the same box as the fuse). If it clicks when you pull it out, your wiring to the fan is bad. If it doesn't click, try switching it with a similar relay. If a different relay clicks when put in the fan relay socket, your fan should now be coming on. If neither relay clicks, interrogate the relay socket with your test light. Put your clip on a chassis ground point and probe the terminals into the relay socket. If 2 of the sockets light up the light, the system is trying to throw the relay. If not, the likely problem is the PCM or the coolant temp sensor, which is read by the PCM. Hopefully you don't get to this point, as I assume your temp gage is working. Let me know if you have questions.

    Will not start and checked fuel pump no power to fuel pump i also have blown fuse for ecmb that blows as soon as i replace it


    ECM B fuse supplies a constant 12v hot at all times to the VCM/PCM and to the fuel pump relay. The fuse is blowing telling you that there is a short to ground somewhere. Try this, take the fuel pump relay out and put a new fuse in. If it doesn't blow put the relay back in and if it blows then try a new relay. The relay may be shorted to ground internaly. Other wise you'll have to trace the wires to the VCM and the pump relay to look for a chafed wire that's contacting metal. The wire coming from the ECM B fuse is orange and has a splice in it going to the pump relay and the VCM/PCM.
    Hope this helps.....Andrew
