Question about 2001 Ford Escape
Sometimes the suv will not turn over. I will turn it over in the morning and if I turn it off and on too much by the third stop the car will not turn over and you have to sit and wait about 10 or 1 minutes. I have replace just about everything I can think. Could it be a relay or a bad fuse?

The Fuel pump relay is in the Power Distribution Box under the hood, it is relay K. If it is the fuse then fuse 17 in the PDB.
It could also be the cut off switch, which is either under the dash above the brake pedal or behind the passenger kick panel

Check to see if the inertia switch is tripped first. Read your owner manual for location and how to reset. Just push the button. It usually only trips in an accident to shut off the fule pump in case there is a leak.
here is how to replace the pump. It's good because you don't have to drop the tank!
Remove the gas cap.
To install, reverse the removal procedure.
Not a bad job. buy pump on ebay or new at discount at tascafordparts.com

SOURCE: fuel pump
Hi I am Vortash you do seem to be having a few problems with this one , and it does sound a little like the fuel pump and ther is an easy way to check you are getting adequate pressure from the pump .. without a pressure meter .. take a small balloon ( you know the type hard to blow small and can cause you to bust a blood vessel trying to inflate them ideal for this ) place it over the end of the fuel pipe and tape it on tight .. remove the lead from the ignition coil so the vehicle will not start .. crank the vehicle and watch the ballon if it starts to inflate then the Pressure is fine . now dont forget this ballon will now be full of gasoline when you remove it so dont break it and have a bowl or. bucket handy .. and when you take it off also remember there is going to be a good deal of pressure in it ?.
Ok so if the ballon inflated the pump is ok if id didnt insist the garage do a fuel pressure test .
I have a cousin who works for Ford here in the UK it is 2.40 am in the morning here now so I will ask him tomorow or later today lol as I have heard of a fault like this before and it was not the fuel system but i want to check with him first .. Regards Vortash

It's under your hood, in one of those boxes, and should be marked. Your pump won't cut in if it's fried either. Check to see if there is power at the pump. Maybe you just have a loose wire. You can always hope!

if you replaced fuel pump i would look at backward wiring when replaced and i would start at the source of work if your vehicle was working fine before replacement then 9 out of 10 it will be your fuel pump wireing
sometimes when putting wireing back together the connectors have the missing clip and in turn you can turn the wireing in both directions now where positive is touching the ground on both sides of connector kris kross problem check your work this is crucial use a test light to find the right wires where they go
