    Pump is not running. My buddy's dad is doing it so not sure about power. He's a parts changer. I will have him check power or do so myself. Just wondered if there were any other fuses or relays he may not know about?

    Can you hear the pump running? Is there power at the pump harness, in and out of the relay? Is there pressure at the fuel rail? I generally try to avoid dumb questions but need more info before offering any suggestions.

As far as I know, there is no secret stuff. but as I said, you have to check power going into and out of all components you changed and do what I said above before just plugging in a ton of new stuff 'till you happen to find the problem.PS if you do find power at the pump, perhaps it's defective?

!988 Jeep Cherokee MPI fuel pressure problem. New everything on/in the fuel system. Can only make it run with a jumper wire from the fuel pump to the battery. Any ideas?


Have you checked the fuel pump relay. If you haven't locate the relay and jump out pins 30 and 87 (there should be a diagram on the relay or if you look at the bottom of it, the pins should be numbered, jump out the corresponding sockets in the relay housing). If the fuel pump turns on when you do that you've verified the power feed is good and the wires to the fuel pump are good. Now with a digital multimeter check that there is battery + on pin 85 or 86. If that checks out, when cranking make sure there is a good ground on the opposite pin (if pin 85 had + on it, pin 86 should have a ground). If all that checks out you can suspect the relay is faulty.

Tp fuel pumps from same year different wireing


What you brought is an tank and unit from 1995 JGC. from 1993 till 1995 they have the same fuel pump. 96'er Jeeps start with OBD - Systems and they have other fuel pumps. You can't change the plug ins, because you may have other fuel filter in your Granny. Check filter and fuel lines if they fit with the unit you brought. If not, you need another unit from a real 96'er Jeep

First of all, the fuel pump is generally located in the fuel tank, not always though. Yours probably is, in did not research it. The fuel electric fuel pump turns on only when the ignition key switch is turned to the start position and then left on. A series of one or two relays along with a pressure monitor in the fuel rail delivery system may or not cycle it on and off depending on design. Enough of that. I suggest that you remove the spark plugs to see if they are oil/heavy cabon deposits.If so, professional attention is reguired. One more thing you could try is replacing the spark plug wires. the may be old/worn out/damage. This would give the engine spark a stronger spark,if worn and also replace the spark plugs.

96 Jeep cherokee ran out of gas, re-fuel, won't start. No spark.


You may have to prime the fuel pump. Or replace the fuel pump if that does not work. Why do you let it run out of gas? This is definately not good for an injected motor. It will continue to cause more and more problems. Fuel injectors should never run dry.

Jeep grand cherokee 1999, automatic, 4litre, petrol. there is fuel in the tank but the engine will not start and the fuel guage is showing empty. anyone know what the problem may be.


the fuel sending unit in the tank needs replacement. check your fuses and relays. this problems sounds electrical not manual. and finally check your fuel pump. this vechile is prone to fuel issues.
