It will be in one of the kick panels, ( the little area by your feet, in front of the door) lok for a black box... it will have a yellow push button on the top.

Can't use front tank. i fill the rear tank, front tank eventually fills up. switch to front tank, it'll run for about 5 minutes then stall. then i switch to rear...fine. why is the front tank filling up...


Ok sounds like a electrical problem being an 89 its fuel injected eather 5.0 or 5.8 each tank has its own fuel pump and sending unit a dashboard switch, relay, fuse and switching motor. check your fuel line from the front tank it could be clogged. check for 12v pwr. to the front pump the sending unit will require 4V but not much. as soon as the fuel rail pressureizes the ECM shuts the pump off using the relay. Usually the tank switch goes bad first.

1989 Ford Ecoline 150 van new fuel pump new filter but still won't get gas and start


The in-tank fuel pump may not be working however I would check and make sure you have power to the pump before just replacing it.Iyou don't have power at the pump then check the inertia switch and if that's doesn't have power check to see if the fuel pump relay is powering up the pump and repair as needed

I have a 1990 ford econoline van e350 that would not start, we replaced fuel pump and fuel injector, still nothing then we replaced the ignition module and still can't get it started


I have a 1989 E350 that had the same problem. I finally found that I had corroded connectors under the hood. There was a group of 5 connectors behind the air cleaner housing under the hood. Two of them had hot wires that feed the computer and the injectors. Repaird these and the van starts right up. Hope this helps.

Where is the location of the fuel pump relay


Did it run fine prior to replacing the alt and battery? Check over where you have been working,sometimes things get bumped/disconnected. Fuel pump shut-off switch is in one of the kick panels near the inside of the doors. Reach up over the top of the kick panel. The pump relay are near the battery. What happens on this model too,is the heater leaks on the computer,which is under the heater core.The coolant/water shorts it out.
