Question about 2000 Kia Spectra

1 Answer

I have 2000 Kia spectra. It shut off while ideling. I have changed the fuel pump and checked fuses/relays. We used a insulated wire and ran it from the battery to the fuel pump relay fuse socket in the fuse box and we could hear the pump running. The relays are not getting power from the fuse box.....HELP! Do I need a new EGI?

    EGI is the main amp that supplies the power to the fuel pump relay...

    OK. If the relay terminal is not getting power, that may be the problem.

You need to troubleshoot the relay and terminals. First try a different relay. Another relay in your car may be same part number relay as you pump relay, so check for that. Swap in a known good relay and try it.
If no help, look at relay. Is it 4 terminal or 5 terminal? If 4 terminal, easier to check. One terminal will be your power source, and hot at all times, so check for that-use your jumper wire (if no testlight or voltmeter), stick end in terminal and just touch metal, looking for spark indicating power. If no terminal has power, maybe only hot with key on, so turn key on and check for power. If no power, the feed from battery to fuse block is lost. If you have one power source, another terminal will be to the pump, the one you turned pump on with. Terminals 3 and 4 will be the signaling source to turn relay on through coil side of relay, and a terminal to ground, also on the coil side of relay. If you have constant power on one terminal, check for the signaling power. When the car is cranking over, the signal terminal should be hot-the signal will be coming from engine computer. So when cranking, relay socket should have two hot terminals. If you don't have two, you're right, relay is not getting correct power to the fuse block. BTW, don't use jumper wire to check for signaling source, use a testlight. Don't want to cause spark from computer wire.
What is EGI? Not familiar with that.

SOURCE: 2002 Kia Spectra has no power to fuel pump

try to locate the fuel pump relay. the pump should be turned on by the relay controlled by the computer. If you can't find the relay, to your local parts store, sometimes they have a component locator and can tell you exactly where it is.

SOURCE: fuel pump was intermittent now just dont hear it come on anymore.

are they good in the way that your getting power with a test light or volt meter?? if you are getting 12 volts with the ignition on or if you can actually hear the fuel pump relay clicking then its probably the pump itself or the wiring from the relay back to the pump. see if you can get at the wiring at the gas tank and try for voltage there with the ignition on if you get voltage then you have pump problems for sure

SOURCE: 2004 kia spectra no a/c

needs looking at because it could be switch that allows it to turn on if sufficient gas is present ,or a problem with the clima compùter ,but to do anything you will need the special machine to empty the system then check things out so take to an authorised AC garage ,because these systems are a potential accident and you could lose a finger with frostbite in a matter of less than 2 seconds .therefore i will not tell you how to look for a soloution because of the dangerous nature of playing with air con

Where is shut off switch for fuel pump on a 2002 Kia Sedona


I agree with Thomas, no shut off switch. There a couple of fuses relating to fuel pump relay, that you can check, one is hot all the time and the other goes hot with key on. Not only check the fuse, use a test lite and check voltage on fuse circuit.
At the fuel pump connector, green wire is voltage and black is ground, need both. If good voltage and ground with no fuel pump action, suspect the fuel pump. Are you missing anything else, like spark, where applicable? Any applicable trouble codes?

Is there a fuse that affects the water pump or cooling system on 02 Kia spectra gsx


There is a fuse for the Electric fans, there are also relays for the fans. There is not a fuse for the water pump. The water pump is mechanical and ran by the serpentine belt.

Clean off the A/C oil from wherever it got. Check the fuel pump fuse. Check ALL the fuses and 'fusible links'. REMOVE, clean and reinstall them. Oil is an insulator. Oiled relays must be replaced

02 spectra no power at fule pump and inj fuse


The pump relay should have four terminals. Number 2 is a green red wire which powers the pump from a 10 amp fuse. Number 3 goes to the pump. Number 1 powers the magnet in the relay and number 4 is the ground signal from the engine computer. If the relay does not engage on its own, one of these circuits is not working.
The injectors get power from that 15amp fuse which gets power from the main relay.
The problem could be farther upstream with the 25amp main fuse.
