A wire in this circuit is shorted out, you must trace the wires in this circuit all the way to the fuel pump, check all connections, check each wire for continuity with key on, use a trouble light tester, looks like an ice pick, w/wire lead w/ alligator clip attached to a good ground. now go do it ,its easy, keep it simple. you must find this short before replacing your new relay, or it will happen again.

SOURCE: 2008 Ford F450 fuel pump relay fuse keeps blowing.

the fuel pump and radio are not on the same circuit, most liokely the fuel pump is shorted, that is the most common cause, get under the truck and disconnect the fuel pump connector at the tank, if the fuse doesn't blow then u need a new pump.

How To bypass the Fuel Pump Relay


Don't bypass the fuel pump relay . power to the relay comes from the ignition switch on start cycle .when the engine is running the oil pressure switch takes over the circuit .so if you crash and the engine .stops so does the pump . If the fuel line brakes a bypassed pump will keep pumping spraying fuel and you could burn.

you are going to have to have the wires from the underside of the relay checked for a short or the contacts for the relay to plug to for tightness.Fuel pumps usually dont burn up relays wires burn up relays like maybe even a pinched wire when the tank was removed and re installed.

1997 Gmc yukon fuel relay switch continues to burn out. Replaced fuel pump twice and also took it the dealer but no solutions. Truck runs fine for sometimes weeks but the problem continues.


I would have to check the fuel pump with a scope to look at the pattern and check the amps it is drawing . the grounds need to be checked and the pcm checked and reflashed. on the fuel system that would affect the fuel pump and relay to where it would burn it out is grounds , pcm , fuel pump , fuel pump relay. so you should convince them to replace the fuel pump and fuel pump relay under warranty and replace the pcm . and get a diagram and check all grounds. If the pcm is damaged and the current has been affected and instead of say a 5 volt or 2 volt signal it now has a 13.5 volt signal or if a ground is out then the temp of the relay will keep rising non energized a relay is about 99 energized it is around 140 you can check to see how hot that relay is getting. and if i remember correctly you want the pcm drivers checked.

Fuel pump relay keeps blowing on my 1996 Cadillac STS, why?


Sounds like the fuel pump is drawing too much amperage. If so, it will burn up the relay.

No start/no power to fuel pump/ power at one small wire/relay fuses ok/


most newer cars have a relay in the fuel system to shut it off when fuel pressure drops below the norm. this keeps your car from running lean and burning a piston. i whould replace the fuel pump. the fuel pump may work when you take it out but that dont mean it has enough pressure to opperate your car.

hope this helps . good luck
