Question about 2001 Ford Escape

1 Answer

2001 ford escape, where is the fuel pump relay?

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?

SOURCE: location of fuel pump relay on e-450 v-10?

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

SOURCE: How do I replace a fuel pump on a 2003 escape?

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!

  1. Relieve the fuel pressure. For additional information, refer to Section 310-00 . (I disconnect inertia switch and crank engine for 10 seconds to revilve pressure).
  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable. (I don't do this myself).For additional information, refer to Section 414-01 .
  1. Lift the LH rear seat cushion.
  1. Position the carpet aside.
  1. Remove the screws and the fuel pump module access cover.
  1. Disconnect the electrical connectors.
  1. Disconnect the fuel and vapor lines from the fuel tank. For additional information, refer to Section 310-00 .
  1. s3k~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif WARNING: The fuel tank may be pressurized. Remove the fuel tank filler cap slowly. If a hissing sound is heard, wait until the condition stops before removing the fuel tank filler cap. If these precautions are not followed, fuel may spray and cause personal injury.
    Remove the gas cap.
  1. Using the special tool, remove the fuel pump module. (If you don't have tool, use a chisel or screwdriver and tap counterclockwise to rotate the ring).

  1. NOTE: Install a new fuel pump mounting gasket.
    To install, reverse the removal procedure.
    • Start the engine and visually inspect for leaks.

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

SOURCE: I don't here the fuel pump ever kick on in my 1990 Ford F150, and I tested all of the fuses and they are good. I was thinking the relay for the fuel pump might be bad -- any suggestions?

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!

SOURCE: E.E.C fuse keeps blowing in 1991 Ford Explorer

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

Fuel issue. Have you checked the fuel pump? Fuel pump relays? But it sure sounds like a misfire or a fuel intake problem. Bad sensor , O2 .

We have a 2002 Ford Escape, 3.0. Sometimes after driving it you can stop and turn it off but it won't start. After it has been parked for sometime, 3 hours or more it will start. Sometimes it will


I would try running it in the driveway for 10 or 15 min and see if the problem occurs. If you can duplicate the problem you can try to troubleshoot it.
When it will not start you need to figure out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel pressure problem. It could be a relay, or a crank sensor, or the fuel pump in the tank. I would expect to find something in the engine compartment that is getting hot and stops working.
I assume the check engine light is not on.

Drove to the store last night had no indications of any problems. Got in it this morning and it cranks over good but will not start? Here's things I have already checked/tested - fuses( coil,ignition, fuel...


If you turn the key from off to run ( do not start ) does the theft light go out ?
How did you check the fuel pump relay ? My 2001 at ~ 35K miles the fuel pump relay went out, I checked it by swapping the trailer tow adapter reverse lamp relay into the place of the fuel pump relay.
The thing I am drawing a blank on, and you seem to confirm what I think, is the fuel pump relay is removable in the '02. Must be the '03 when the fuel pump relay became integrated into the fuel panel ( non serviceable ).

If you jumper the fuel pump relay, does it turn on ( red line in picture below )

My ford taurus is not getting gas to the intake i checked all the fuses and there all good.


mike42353 it is called a fuel inertia cut off switch,first thing i would look at is the fuel pump pressure if there is none check the f/p fuse if that is ok check for power at the fuel pump if no power at the f/p find your f/p relay it will be in the main fuse box in the engine bay remove relay bridge the power terminal with the f/p wire if pump works it should be the relay ,after that if you dont here pump working you need to get it checked out with a certified tech,regards agwbk
