Where is the fuel pump driver module located on a ford taurus 2003 v6 ?

2003 ford taurus cranks but wont start. the fuel pump is not getting current. it gives a code p1233 which is fuel pump driver module off line. my book does not show where this module is located. the car has been giving me trouble for a few months now. when you would drive it somewhere and shut it off then come back to crank it sometimes it would crank and sometimes it would not. when it wouldnt crank you would have to wait one hour and it would start up and run fine. so far i have changed the crank sensor cam sensor fuel rail pressure sensor temp.sensor and fuel pump relay. hpoe this code will be the problem if i could just find where it is. thanks.

SOURCE: Fuel pump will not run, 96 Neon 2.0 SOHC

Personally I wouldnt bother tracing the wire as it is probably not worth your time, and just run a constant 12v from the battery to the relay on like 10ga wire. There is probably a short somewhere in the system which can be a real headache to find.

Also it may sound dumb, but check your fuses, and the fusible links under the hood. Chances are that they are all fine though, especially if you have dash lights.

SOURCE: 95 saturn won't start when hot

Blair, I would take a look at he TPS (throttle position sensor) located on the throttle body. In other words, it sounds as thought sensor when heated is changing its value to "open" or "shorted".
If the car starts OK when cold, use a hair dryer to heat the TPS when the engine is cold to see if you can duplicate the problem.
Also is the a service engine light on? Codes?
If you have a "digital volt/ohm meter" available you can read the variable resistance of the sensor when the problem occurrs to determine if the sensor is defective.

SOURCE: "Cranks, but won't start". Replaced fuel pump, CKP, ICM & nothing

If the engine cranks over normally when you attempt to start you car, but the engine does not start, the problem may be NO FUEL, NO SPARK or NO COMPRESSION. The engine needs adequate fuel pressure, a properly timed spark and normal compression to start.


1) To find why the engine won't start, remove the air inlet tube from the throttle body, push the throttle open and spray a small amount of aerosol starting fluid into the engine. Crank the engine. If it has spark and compression but NO FUEL, it will start and run a few seconds before dying. If it does NOT start, it probably has NO SPARK.

2)Another method to check for spark is to pull a spark plug wire off of a spark plug (if it has plug wires, coil-on-plug ignitions do not) and place the open end of the plug wire near a metal surface on the engine. Have a helper crank the engine while you watch for a spark. DO NOT hold the wire while doing this as it can shock you. If you see a spark, the problem is not spark, but most likely NO FUEL or NO COMPRESSION. If you do not see a spark, the problem is in the IGNITION CIRCUIT.

3)Proper fuel pressure is critical for fuel injected engines to start and run. You should hear the fuel pump inside the fuel tank buzz for a couple of seconds when the ignition is turned on (no buzz means the pump is not running and the engine is not getting fuel). You can smell the tailpipe for gasoline vapors after cranking the engine. If you smell gas, the problem is likely not fuel but NO SPARK. You can also remove the plastic cap and press the schraeder valve test fitting on the fuel rail to see if there is any fuel pressure to the engine (not a very accurate test because fuel pressure must be at a certain level for the engine to start, for that you need a gauge). Even so, no fuel at the fuel rail would tell you fuel is not getting to the engine..

My truck did this after I replaced the fuel pump. Turned out to Fuel Pressure Regulator. It would crank and crank but never start. It's located underneath the black plastic manifold on the side of the injectors.

Fuel pump driver module


Could have a problem with the fuel pump, partially blocked or seized and drawing too much current thru the FPDM. Also, pinched fuel line on either side of the pump or v dirty fuel filter could also cause pump to work too hard. Can you put a smaller fuse inline with pump motor, so that it blows before FPDM is damaged?

Will a fuel pump driver module on a 2002 ford taurus v6 dohc make the vehicle act like the fuel pump is going out?


This could indeed be the fault. If the vehicle does not restart after this issue occurs, then disconnect the fuel line and test for pressure. If low, then replace the fuel module and/or pump.

Fuel pump


Can you here the fuel pump kick on? If not you will have to replace it. If the car has alot of miles and fuel filter was never changed then the fuel pump will work harder and wear out. Pump located in tank.

My '90 taurus quit running and won't start. it cranks, but won't fire. The battery is fine. my neighbor said something about a module? what and where is it and how do I test it?


He's talking about the TFI module located plugged on the bottom of the distributor. I would listen for the fuel pump if it is kicking on or not. If you turn the key forward don't start the car listen for fuel pump to kick on. If it's not kicking on then you have a bad fuel pump. Fuel pressure can be checked with a fuel guage on fuel rail pressure should read 30psi. TFI module can be check if you buy the scan tool for it. In the late 80's to early 90's the TFI module's would get hot and fail. Always keep and extra TFI module with you if that's the problem. Check for fuel first before doing the TFI module.

2002 ford taurus won't start at first crank in the morning


remove the air filter housing from the throttle body, or if its mult-ported injection, remove the large air duct. Do this the night before. The next day, before cranking and having a spray can of carb. cleaner, spray a couple of shots of carb cleaner either into the large air duct, spray towards the engine, or if its single body injection, spray directly on to the throttle body.

Crank engine immediately, preferrably have some one else sitting in the car to start it after you spray.

If the car even tries to start, replace cold start relay.
