SOURCE: truck wont start

This is a common concern with this year model Ford diesel. There are several things to make the truck not start. There is a high-pressure oil sensor on the rear of the passenger side valve cover that if it fails won't let your engine start, there is a cam sensor on the front of the engine that if fails won't let your engine fire. Check all of your fuses and check the injector control module relay in the fuse panel under the hood. There are others that are best handled by ford, there is another high-pressure oil sensor down in the engine valley beneath the intake, the high-volume oil pump could of gone out, a high pressure oil line that if leaks won't let your truck start. the injector control module that if fails the replacement must be programmed to your trucks computer. Ford has a computer specifically designed to work on these trucks and they should beable to check your pump by looking at the oil pressures as it turns over. You can change the cam and the oil sensor on the valve cover yourself but they are expensive around $150.00 a piece and that may not fix it. I recommend taking it to the dealer and letting them looking at it. I know first hand that just throwing parts at it hoping to fix it can get expensive. Hope I was able to help you and answer your questions.

SOURCE: my 98 windstar gl is not getting the ground comand

If you don't think your getting the ground command through your PCM, you can make your own ground just by bypassing the PCM all together. First you need to find a PCM connector end view showing which pins are which wires and locate the ground you need for that circuit. Then you need enough wire to loosely run from your battery negative terminal to the PCM connector. I you can back probe the PCM ground wire with a sewing needle and wrap the new wire around it, and attach the other end to the batt. neg. your just allowing the PCM to get it's ground another way. If it still doesn't start, try swapping fuel pump relays w/ a head light relay or one w/ the same part number on it. If you can't find one, just hot wire the pump relay again just to see if it starts and runs. If it does start and run you'll need to go to a wrecking yard and pick up a used PCM and maybe buy a relay for the fuel pump. I sincerely hope this info helps in some way.

possible fuel pump shorting out problem, disconnect fuel pump wiring connector located around tank area under vehicle & turn key on again. if no more clicking from relay or theft warning stops. then change fuel pump, and check the short wiring harness to fuel pump for overheat signs.

Have you checked the fuel pump relay and the fuse? Yes, the OBD 2 system can check for and have codes pulled with the switch set to "on" while vehicle is not started. Need a scanner though to check it.

My 2000 clk 320 wont start it cranks but wont fire, The fuel pump is not coming on the relay is good. the cps is putting out a little over 1vac. I checked the voltage at the cpu connector e pin 37 &...

The only thing that will shut the fuel and the spark - is crank position sensor. And they do go bad on MB.
If you have scaner which can read data from the engine , you can monitor the rpm while you crank the engine , if you see 0 rpm while cranking , CP sensor caput.

Were can i locate the fuel regulator on my 2002 explore. change the fuel pump explore still wont start. still acts like its not getting fuel

before you do anything else , scan your vehicle with an OBD 2 scanning tool . If you don't get any codes: make sure your fuel pump cycles on for a few seconds when you turn the key from off to on, (you can hear it huming}...if it does then replace the in line fuel filter. if your fuel pump doesn't cycle for a few seconds when the key is turned on, check your fuel cut off (vehicle rollover )safety switch and reset it if necessary. finally , check the fuel pump relay circuit.

1993 jeep laredo auto shutdown& fuel pump relays go crazy open & close it wont stop and car dont start

Most often a relay will act like a buzzer if it is not properly grounded. The ground signal generally comes from the computer. The auto shutdown realy feeds the fuel pump relay and therefore is shutdown relay isn't getting the proper signal it will in turn send same improper signal to pump relay. I am sending you a decent diagram of this and suggest you first make sure all body grounds are clean and secure.
Good luck!

Might check the coolant sensor. Make sure it is reading correctly. If it is still reading cold on your coolant sensor it will tell the computer to run as if it were cold telling the computer to send more fuel when in fact it doesnt need any because the engine is already warmed up.
