Sounds a lot like a bad system ground, causing the relay to act like a "buzzer" till the connection arcs enough to make a decent connection.

Where is the fuel pump relay located


There are several "relay blocks" around the car. Info on what relays are in each one is printed inside the block cover, which is not a lot of help to start off with.

It appears to me that not all Camrys have that relay fitted, some instead only having a fuse. The 1MZ V6 has a big enough pump that it has a relay in block 5, under the hood on the left side looking forward.

There is not one on the 4-cyl just for the fuel pump. It is supplied by the EFI 15A fuse thru the EFI main relay and the circuit opening relay. See here p 177

On the V6 it is similar, see p 575

My 1995 YJ 2.5l m5 is having an electrical problem. when you first turn on the key, nothing happens. If you leave the key on after a while the fuel & shutdown relays start clicking. After a minute...


sounds like a ecm issue. Had the same problem with my 1995 wrangler and the time you had to let it sit before fuel pump kicked in got longer and longer until it wouldn't kick in at all. Ordered a rebuilt computer online and after i installed it i kicked right over.

1995 Jeep Wrangler 2.5L Fuel Pump/Check engine light


Could be one of several items...I'd check the fuel pump relay, auto shutdown relay and the ignition switch itself. I'd bet on it being one of those relays but, we all have been fooled at least once!!! I'd also make sure that body and engine grounding is good and clean. Relays can't work properly without a good ground.

1998 wrangler 4 cyl 110,000 miles. The engine


quite possibly it may be taking a little while to build fuel pressure. next time try cycling the key on and off 3 or 4 times with out cranking the vehicle to allow the pump to build pressure the try to star it up if it starts right up then your problem is it's just taking time to build pressure

Trouble starting


sounds like your fuel pump is about to go bad. when you turn the key on, it engages the fuel pump for about 3 seconds. If you cycle the key on and off for 3-4 times it should create enough fuel pressure to start the jeep. Try it. Let me know.
