Problem with the relay to fuel pump on Alfa Romeo 146 1.8 TSpark

My car wont start - just tries to turn over. RAC says the pump is fine but there are only 2 volts getting to the pump rather than the 12 that are needed. He could not fix it - can anyone help me please? He has tried the reset button too. Thanks.

I AM CURRENTLY WORKING ON THE SAME VEHICLE. IT DID THE SAME THING TO ME BUT I FOUND THAT THE COLD START INJECTOR WAS FAULTY WITH A NOID LIGHT TOOL TO CHECK IF THE COMPUTER WAS ACTIVATING IT. REPLACED THE INJECTOR AND IT FIRED RIGHT UP!

fuel pump relay is usually under the hood and should be labeled.often the relay is the same type used for other operations on the vehicle - look for numbers to be the same on the relays then switch them to see if the problem is the relay. if the relays are ok then this sounds like bad ground somewhere. Any water leaks on the vehicle of spills that could start corrosion of a ground wire. good luck

SOURCE: where is the fuel pump relay at on my 2002

relay is the problem if it dies in seconds after starting. Mitsubishi will show you exactly were it is if no body else does. Sorry I do not work on this model although all cars have a fuel pump relay and operates the same way

Fuel shut off switch location on a 74 alfa romeo spider 200


Does the fuel pump run? The inertia switch, if tripped will prevent the fuel pump from running. If the pump runs but the car doesn't start than it's likely a problem with the fuel pressure regulator or the bypass internal to the pump.

Not getting gas to engine. Where do I find the fuel pump FUSE and/or RELAY??


Generally a FPR failure won't cause a non-start. Both your Fuel pump fuse and relay are under the package shelf, behind the front seats on the right hand side. The shelf has three screws that are kinda hard to see and some Velcro holding it down. Also thick your inertial switch. The white button should be up.

I have 1986 Alfa Spider that won't start. Car has been sitting for a year. I replaced battery, fuel tank, fuel sender unit, both fuel pumps. I seems that the in tank pumps is not getting any po


Could be the main or fuel run relay located in the compartment under the luggage rack, passenger side, main relay also, fuse for the fuel relay 8amp. Electronic Control Unit is also located there.

Could be electrical, Hook up a timing light, three leads: Power, Ground, and one that goes around the wire to #1 cyl. Turn the engine over and see if there's firing. Note: u can check all 4 spark plugs this way.

Fuse lead goes to pin 30 of the fuel relay, u can jump 30 across to 57 and check for the pumps running, if not, change-I suggest both relays, main and fuel run relays. Both pumps get their 12v DC from the fuel run relay, both should be running when you switch ignition switch to on, then a tachymetric signal is fed from the coil to the relay to keep it running.

Alpha romaeo 156 tspark will not start when hot


its a possibility that the starter solinoid is heating up and will not start car. try a new relay for the fuel pump which should be inexpensive and is a possibility. the fuel pump relay could be heating up and causing fuel pump not to come on. good-day! it could be just about anything. check out above first! the pump relay.

Fitted new fuel pump to alfa romeo 156 twin spark still no fuel getting to engine and car wont start


Make sure to check the fuses, most of the time when this pump goes bad it blows the fuse, and fuses sometimes get corioded and dont make a connection take a look at the fuse box.

There are 3 I think . The main one is behind the panel between the steering column and the drivers door. There should be a screw knob thing on the the upper side of the cubby hole. Undo that and the panel should fall down. The drivers door needs to be open though.
There are some main fuses in the little box on top of the battery and there are some more relays inside the glove compartment. You have to prize off a panel on the upper part of the glove box first.

Got s,reg nissan mirca turns over but wont start never had prob before any ideas what might be wrong batt fine ,spark good


fuel pump, fuel pump relay or fuse, or crank sensor.

the crank sensor is located near or behind the main bottom pulley on the front of the engine. it is a very likely problem and is usually an easy replacement, but the fuel pump and its fuse & relay could be the next most likely problem.

I cant remove my front headrestson my alfa romeo 156 tspark


At the base where the head rest forks go in there's usually a side clip which you just push in. If not they may just need some brut force, some of the Recaro leather seats that Alfa used were like this! Hope this helps.
