1995 silverrado fuel pump relay

My fuel pump relay will not click , the wire from the relay to the pcm , when you first turn key on the voltage will be b+ then it will drop off to 4.5 volts , is that norm , i have pulled the pcm and tested the wires and checked the wire to all other pins , all clean so the wire it good , does any one know if that is normal?, that truck has a bad hesitation ,but if you let up the tps just a little it is a lot better , at low speeds , on the freeway it does not hesitate, so at high rpms it's ok , any idea's ,thanks

    the relay was bad but the hesitation is still there ,i was checking the timing and i noticed that if you raise engine speed and watch the timing it will jump a little them jump to the max and as the rpm's come down it will back and forth , so does the ign module in the distributor control the timing or the pcm? no codes

    I can start the truck just fine, it will run for a few seconds and then the engine dies. It seems like the fuel pump but I haven't checked it yet. Does anyone know what the problem might be?



    Thanks much!

The Power Numbers are Correct. Just replace the Relay and you should be just Fine.

I have a 2002 jeep liberty kj 3.7L and the fuel pump relay clicking slowly but constantly with ignition in off position? Relay already replaced, so not that. Ideas?


Are you sure that it is in fact the fuel pump relay ? With the key off no B+ voltage is supplied to the relay . Pin 86 at the base ,where the relay plugs into . Fuse #15 a 10 amp fuse is hot with ignition switch in the run or start position . Pin 85 is control from the PCM - engine computer . Pin's 30 & 87 are the load side , fuel pump being the load . If your unfamiliar with the pins i'm talking about , pull the relay out an look on the bottom ,you will see these numbers .Pin #30 will show B+ voltage all the time , pin 86 only with the key on or start .

No fuel getting to motor so no start. replaced pump fuses and relays all good. there is spark


you will need to check the plug to the pump on top of the tank. check for voltage. then if no volts trace the wires back. also you should check the relay have some one at the relay listening to see if it clicks when you turn the key. no click no volts no volts may be a warn out relay, if it buzzes change it.

Dodge 1500 1995 pickup 7.5 volts to fuel pumpwill not start applied 12 volts pump runs book sayes pcm de-energize booth relayes and will not send proper voltage to fuel pump


There is a red and white wire feeding the fuel pump relay from a 30 amp fuse. Both the shutdown relay and the fuel pump relay are grounded by the PCM, so if the fuel pump relay is grounded it should be "on" and providing a direct link from the pump to that fuse.
You should have battery voltage on that 30 amp wire before the relay and then on the dark green and black wire going to the pump.
If you don't have battery voltage coming from the 30 amp fuse, the problem could be before the fuse.
That 30 amp fuse is hot all the time, so it is powered by a fuseable link coming off the battery.

2000 buick regal. Losing fuel pump voltage


http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html free wiring diagrams ! Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Under system click on engine ,then under subsystem click on fuel controls . Then click the search button , then click blue link .The 7th diagram down shows two fuel pump relays , This I have not seen before ! One is speed cont. relay an the other is just fuel pump relay ? The speed control one has a resistor in the electrical circuit . That is way your droping voltage .
Fuel Pump Electrical Circuit Diagnosis (VIN K)
Fuel Pump Electrical Circuit Diagnosis (VIN 1)

The PCM alters fuel pump speed by energizing the fuel pump speed control relay. Under normal conditions, the fuel pump speed control relay is energized. The applied voltage to the fuel pump is controlled by a resistor assembly. When higher fuel volume is required due to increased engine load, MAP sensor value over 90 kPa the PCM de-energizes the fuel pump speed control relay circuit. The increased voltage to the in-tank fuel pump allows a higher volume of fuel to be delivered to the fuel rail. The PCM also compensates for low system voltage by energizing the fuel pump speed control relay.

Have it check for codes !

Car is 00 skoda octavia 1.9 tdi when i turn on ignition the heater plug indicator light does not come on on full turn engine turns over as normal but will not start no error shown on diagnostics on further...


Hi,

I apologize for a delayed response as i was not at my desk.

Check to see if the fuel pump relay clicks when you turn the key on. If it doesnt click verify one terminal has constant ground if not you will need to run a new ground wire. If ground is good access pin 46 on connector 1 of the pcm to check for voltage if no voltage replace pcm if it has voltage replace green/white wire between pcm and relay. You can also first try to swap the relay with another one to see if that helps. If relay clicks then check the 15 amp fuel pump fuse and if blown replace. If fuse is good verify one terminal on the relay has voltage at all times and gray wire has voltage leaving relay when key is in crank position for for a few seconds when turned into on position. If gray wire leaving relay has voltage but not gray wire at fuel pump replace the wire.

Let me know,once you check the above.

Thanks and Regards

95 Buick LeSabre 3.8 L which is the fuel pump relay?


You can usually go by the wire colors. The fuel pump relay wires are pink, gray, black, and green with a white stripe. When troubleshooting a fuel pump that is not coming on, the relay is the best place to figure out why. You can pull the relay out and put a jumper wire from the battery to the terminal with the gray wire. If the pump runs, you know that isn't the problem. Then turn the key on and use a jumper between the terminals with the pink and gray wires. If this turns the pump on, you know the ignition switch is sending power to the relay, and the fuse is good. Pull that jumper out, but leave the key on. Push the relay back into the socket, but put a jumper from a ground point to the terminal with the black wire. If that turns the pump on, the ground wire is bad. If not, the PCM is not turning the relay on. Reasons for that may be a bad wire from the PCM, a passlock issue, or the PCM fuse/power wire.

99 silverrado chngd fuel pump n still no start no noise from pump


im not sure of the color wires that should be powered but have you checked the fuel pump relay under the hood? also check that you have a good ground at the pump dont check just the positive voltage check for negative (ground) also

Ive never seen a car start up just fine after leaving the key on all night. I would try jumping it. If the voltage is too low it wont start.

1995 silverrado fuel pump relay


4.5 volts , that's not right . Resistance in the circuit . before the relay ! Do voltage drop testing , not ohms . That should stay at vehicle (battery voltage ) It should go low on the other side of the circuit . Watch this video on voltage drop . Voltage is not being pulled low , it should not not drop voltage till it goes through the relay coil , on the ground side .You have high resistance in that green with white stripe wire .
