    of course everything that runs on electricity needs a ground, that said the chances that your ground just went away without someone removing it? nearly zero, what is the problem? if the fuel pump is not running then most likely u need a new pump.

Not getting fuel..have pulled off line and checked the filter and found it clean. Also the primer is not getting fuel. What could be the problem? Im disabed and dont have extra money


this could be a fuel pump problem that needs replacing. you will have to check to see if the fuel pump is working. depending how movable you are you might be able to do the job, it will need tools to check. you can try to see if you hear the fuel pump running while someone tries to start the car while you listen at the fuel tank fill hose(gas cap). if you don`t you can try hitting the fuel tank bottom and see if it starts to work. if so then the pump is bad.

Fuel problem, not getting fuel changed filter, pump, What now ?


Hi, there is a grey wire that comes from the fuel pump relay, to the pump. This wire must have power while cranking, and running. If you have power, you need to check groung at the pump. If you have power, and ground, and your connection at the pump, and sending unit are good, then you may have a faulty pump. Good luck...Coop

I have a 1991 ford rockwood camper it has been sitting for 2 yrs,It ran great when I parked it but now it won't start. I got it to start when putting gas down the throtle body but it won't stay...


you can disconnect the fuel line at the fuel filter, and place a hose from the fuel line in to a small container and have some one turn the key on to see if there is fuel coming out of the line .also check the fuel filter .that it is not blocked .if no fuel comes out replace the fuel pump check all fuses at the fuse box .if there is a fuse for it .it would be marked fuel

No power to fuel pump


have you tested for main power to the fuel pump relay and checked the main fuse???
this is a very common honda fault over in newzealand where im from..having owned a few myself i have come accross, this generally the relay though.. but if you have a good fuse supplying power to relay its the relay or wiring..if not , trace from fusebox back to ecu by passengers foot well....i cant quite remember what pin number is the fuel power but i know it only runs piggy back to ecu so ecu doesnt control it ... try this if no luck try auto sparky

Not getting power to fuel pump


You won't get any voltage to the fuel pump, until you "crank" the engine. It picks up a signal from the distributor which then talks to the ECM telling the car to turn the fuel pump on. The main relay is bad about going out on Honda's but they usually cool down and work, until you shut the car off. I'm leaning more towards a bad distributor.
