the power relay activates the PCM, engine computer. The PCM activates the fuel pump relay that turns on the fuel pump with key ON. It runs for 5 seconds, then it shuts off, unless the engine starts. Can you hear the pump run (hum) in th fuel tank when key is turned ON?
Also, reset the inertia switch in case it tripped. Owner's manual will tell you where it is. Rest is pressing the buton.
check wiring connections[fuel pump] and fuel filter --quick and easy way to check pump turn key and listen for hum of pump if hum pump running /under hood check fuel pressure at fuel line test valve [shrader]or spray starter fluid if fires up u have fuel problem if not can be many reasons from egr valve ,cat conv-pcv-these are usually the ones that dont set off a code
with key in ON position can you hear the fuel pump humming uder the middle of car? the pump should hum for about 10 to 15 seconds,then go off and come back on when the key is turned off and then key turned back on.could possibly be a bad fuel filter, or a fuel pump going bad, it's definitly a fuel issue because it starts. try replacing the most inexpensive thing 1st. the fuel filter and then the fuel pump. hope this helps!!!
you have a fuel pump relay . Check to see if the fuel pump is humming when you turn key. check for proper ground for fuel pump. try spraying some carb cleaner into the intake then attempt a start. The engine will run for a few seconds, this will verify spark. corosion at the electrical connections is always a possibility. and lastly can you get the engine running by opening the throttle when starting?
The fuel pump operates off two items upon starting the car. When you first turn the key to the ON position you can hear the fuel pump faintly running inside the fuel tank. If you can not hear it it seems it is working for you stated the engine starts then cuts off. That tells me the engines oil pressure switch is working the fuel pump. On the oil pressure switch this switch has a third wire which is directed to the fuel pump. When the engine reaches full oil pressure the computer shuts off the signal from the oil pressure switch and then the computer turns on the fuel pump relay which stays on until you shut the engine off. I do beleive the fuel pump relay is what you need for it is not working no longer. This will have many relays with the same part number on it. You can easily swap any relay that looks the same with the same numbers on it and try it once to see if the engine stays running.
This is going to sound stupid, but before you change the fuel pump relay, go back to the tank and give it a few good raps(rubber malet works great) if your pump comes on-the buzz, you need a new pump. also if after replacing the relay- if thats what you determine to be the cause and it still won't run- get your ignition module tested-it needs to send a sig to turn on the relay as a safety. oh and sorry can't tell you were the relay is.
that sounds correct and its probably electric and in the tank. turn the key to the start position then listen for a small humming noise coming from gas tank if theres no sound then thats most likely the problem.
