    If I can ID the relay I can determine where the power is coming from. If a relay is powered when the igntion is off it will draw current.

It could be your radio memmory which stays on like all cars but most likely its a bad battery or worst case its your alternator take it to a auto zone or any shop that checks your car for free : )

SOURCE: replacing front fender

My son went around a curve one night and hit a tree stump that was in the middle of the road. It put the front bumper under the truck, busted the radiator, the framing brace that supported the radiator and the A/C condenser. There was even wood in the frame from the impact. He also needed to replace a fender from a previous accident. After getting everything installed on the engine, they had a problem putting the fenders back on.

The passenger's side fender fit perfectly except where the hood was hitting in one spot. The fender was about 2 to 3 inches too high and the guys were threatening to take a hammer and beat it down. But after getting a stronger light and searching the frame of the truck from all angles, they found out there was still one bolt that needed to be removed. Once it was removed, the fender went on smoothly. They didn't get to use the hammer like they were threatening!

SOURCE: Something is draining the battery

You have a draw and a draw pulling more than a couple hundred milliamps.This will drain the battery in an objectionably short amount of time.. All the things you mentioned and more can cause this draw. The best diagnostic step towards isolating your draw is with meter that reads Volts DC or better yet a test light.(I think) ..disconnect B+ positive battery cable. Install meter or lamp in series with disconnected cable and battery post. You do have some smal draws like computer memories,clocks etc which will show a low amount of voltage hence a very dim test light. If you are drawing heavy ,obviously the meter will show a full blown 12 volts and the lamp bulb will be very bright. Remove fuses,unplug relays,dis-connect devices while watching the voltage or lamp.You should begin to isolate offending item once the circuit has been detected, Generally pulling all fuses individually will tell you at least which circuit is pulling the amps.

How do I replace the Fuel relay in my 1991 Mustang?

Front of RH (passenger side) strut tower near the MAF. Not exactly sure how hard it is to replace. Some have 2 one under seat one on pass fender wall. I believe 91+ has 2...LX units that were 4-cyl., used a CCRM module but had an empty relay socket under the driver's seat. 1990+ GT units had the FP relay relocated in the engine bay.

Code 12 1995 dodge spirit 2.5 battery and PCM NOT disconnected. where does the pin 3 on PCM gets its battery suppy voltage from

Has the battery been disconnected or been low on charge in the last 50 ignition cycles?

Code 12 means that battery power has been disconnected within the last 50 ignition cycles. it does not mean there is no battery power to the computer

Pin 3 should be a red/white wire that is the constat power supply to the PCM. It is protected by a fusible link located neer the drivers side strut tower. If that link was bad the car would not start or run as it also supplieds power to the asd relay, fuel pump relay, and the ssd relay.

I would put money on the the problem being igntion (plugs wires cap rotor), compression (low cylinder compression usually cylinders 2 and 3), lack of fuel delivery (low fuel pressure, a weak or dirty injector), timin (timing belt jumped, worn distributor, look exciter ring), or possibly a plugged catalytic converter.

I would check compression first especially cylinders 2 and 3. It was pretty common for the head gasket to fail in between these two cylinders.

Were is the fuel pump relay located

On a 1991 Dodge Spirit, with a 2.5L 4 cylinder its on the drivers side inner panel and is the second relay.

Also be sure to disconnect the battery for 15 min and reconnect to reset the switch. Here is a wiring diagram as well for the fuel system

Check on the inner fender behind the battery. There's a group of 5 relays, 3 on the fender well,
and 2 will be on the strut housing. the innermost one is the fuel pump relay, the outer one is the starter relay.

They are just standard Chrysler can get them pretty cheap.

usually just 3 bolts under the dash on the passenger side. Look for a round meatl motor housing with a 2 wire wire harness.

Same 1991 w/starting problem

open the door and listen for a click from under the car (starter solenoid). If you hear that click, along with the one coming from
the glove compsartment(starter relay), it's the wire between the starter solenoid and the relay...If you only hear the one click from the glove compartment( it's actually in the passengers door pillar), it's the starter relay ($15)
