SOURCE: 1cant figure out why i only get power to the fuel pump when i run a hard wire from the battery to the relay i have tested the relays and they are ok

Did you see if the inertia switch was triggered. The emergency fuel pump cutoff switch, also known as the inertia switch, cuts power to the fuel pump in the event of an accident - even a slow speed one - any sudden "jolt" can trigger the switch. 

The switch is located inside the jack storage compartment found at the right rear of the vehicle. Remove the cover and it is behind the thin "foam" covering inside the compartment towards the rear of the vehicle. 

It has a red button on the top of the switch, make sure the button is fully depressed. If it is and the vehicle still won't start check fuel pressure at the rail (there is a port on the rail which is under the hood on the engine) with a fuel pressure gauge. If the pressure is ok (about 30 psi) the problem is most likely not fuel system related. 

Good luck and hope this helps.

I have a 1998 contour se 4cyl. When you turn the key on check engine light doesn't come on and the fuel pump doesn't come on.


Check main power feed for the PCM - engine computer . Find free wiring diagrams an electrical distribution charts .At http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html also check the PCM power relay , powers up the engine computer . Relays do go bad . The PCM power relay is located in the under hood fuse / relay box an it is # K163 .

How to check pcm, no spark,no fuel, no injection pulse.99 ford mustang 3.8 v6


When you turn ignition key on ( not start ) does the checking light ,light ? Check fuse's for PCM , are they good ? Find a wiring diagram an check power an ground at PCM . Also hook up a scan tool an see if it will communicate with the PCM . That's how you check the PCM ! Also check the constant control relay module , these go bad an they have fuel pump relay , power hold relay , this powers up fuel injectors an ignition system !

1989 f-250 inertia fuel shut-off switch switch location


This should be in the owner's manual. I found the below on autozone.com, their repair help location:
An inertia switch is used as a safety device in the fuel system. The inertia switch is located in the cab, generally under the dashboard on the right side. It is designed to open the fuel pump power circuit in the event of a collision. The switch is reset by pushing each of 2 buttons on the switch simultaneously (some models use switches with only one reset button). The inertia switch should not be reset until the fuel system has been inspected for damage or leaks.
When the ignition switch is ON , it turns the EEC power relay ON . The EEC power relay provides power to the powertrain control module (PCM) and the control side of the fuel pump relay. Power for the fuel pump(s) is supplied through a fuse link or high current fuse attached to the starter solenoid (battery side). From the fuse link or high current fuse, current flows through the fuel pump relay and inertia switch to the fuel pump(s). The fuel pump relay is controlled by the PCM.
When the ignition switch is turned ON , the fuel pump(s) will operate. If the ignition switch is not turned to the START position the PCM will shut the fuel pump(s) OFF after 1 second. The PCM will operate the fuel pump(s) operate the fuel pump(s) when the ignition switch is turn to START position to provide fuel while cranking.
After the engine starts, the PCM will continue to operate the fuel pump(s) unless the engine stops, drops below 120 rpm or the inertia switch is tripped.

No power to fuel and coil


what engine, 4.0Liter? systems vary by engine options.
my 99 had a 4L. (or 2.7L v6?)
what are the over all symptoms?
my guess:
1: wont start.?
2: no engine power, or misfires with OBD2 P0300 codes.?

now 12v DC power to fuel pump or coil means the fuse blew.
check the fuses in the 2 fuse panels,

the 2.7L has 6 COPs, 6 ignition coils
and all run off of the fuse #2 , called, "IG COIL" (cab fuse box)
btw 2:
if the coils are dead, the ECU/PCM cuts all fuel, it just hates a fire.
programming................

1997 ford contour


hold pedal to floor and it tries to start ! Not sure if your vehicle has clear flood mode , Most vehicle have clear flood mode strategy programmed in the ECU , PCM ,ECM .when you hold the accelerator pedal to the floor the engine computer cuts down on the injector on time to clear a flooded engine .
Fuel pressure regulator problem ,maybe ! You say there was a blown fuel pump fuse an you replaced it ? Fuse's don't blow for no reason ? Fuel pump bad , short , too much current !
Disconnect the mass air flow sensor an see if it starts !

Locate fuse for fuel pump 1997 camaro


The fuel pump power to the relay is powered by the PCM BAT fuse 15amp.
The relay is grounded and the PCM powers the relay to turn it on and power the pump.
You should have power on the orange wire with the key on.
The PCM powers the relay when the key switch is in the start position and after the computer sees oil pressure and RPM.

No communication between pcm and fuel pump.


I would first replace the fuel filter. If it still wont start check all your fuses. If still won't check your fuel pump.
