Check under the hood for a box containing your fusible links (they look like large blade fuses in most modern vehicles). The fuel pump relay only operates the fuel pump. It doesn't provide power to the rest of the fuel system. Odds are the fuse for the injection system is blown. The inside of the cover of most fusible link cases usually has a diagram which tells what each fuse is. The easiest thing to do is locate that fuse and remove it (with the vehicle off of course) and visually inspect to see if it's blown. If it is, simply replace it and see if that corrects your problem. While you're under the hood you might want to trace the wires back to their origin and check to be sure the harness is not rubbing or chafing against anything that might have caused wires to break and short. It's rare for those fusible links to blow without a reason.

    Right. Basically your fuel pump is probably fine and pushing the fuel, but if the fuse to the injection system is blown there is no power to the injectors to control them, so it's the same result as if the pump weren't working. No fuel will get to the cylinders, so your car won't start.

    Well, since you rated me as "thanks for trying" before we even got the problem completely clarified, I don't think I can help you any further. I'd have appreciated it if you'd have at least given me a chance to help you a little before you decided I wasn't all that helpful :)

Have a 1990 Volvo 740 GLE. It has been sitting for 3 years or more? When it was parked in my backyard it drove right in? Now we try to start it and it turns over but will not start and run? We blew out the...

Change the fuel filter, and ensure the pump(s) are working. Some cars only have one pump in the tank. Others have two, and they are both driven from a relay in the engine compartment. Depending on model and year, this relay may be near the anti-boil overflow bottle, or on the driver's side, near the battery. If you turn the key to ON you should hear a gentle whir for two seconds. If that sound isn't present, the pump or relay is suspect. If it is loud, the pump is failing.
When fuel pumps fail on these cars the car typically will not run when the tank is less than half full. In the case of turbo models, the main pump under the driver's side has to pick up the extra slack. In my experience, it is better to change both pumps when one pump has failed. When the tank pump is noisy, it is failing.
Of course, check the fuses before condemning the pumps. -AS

The fuel pump relay is located, just behind the ashtray, above the fuses.

Check the fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay first, before replacing the fuel pump. The fuses and relays are behind the the ash tray, The fuses are labelled. The relay is on the left side of the relay rack, closest to the big round bulb out sensor. But before that, how about pouring some gas line anti-freeze or fuel injector cleaner into the tank?
