Checking power for fuel pump

Do you know what a fuel pump relay is ? You can check B+ Voltage an control at the relay > Find the relay in the under hood fuse box . Pull the relay out an look on the bottom , you should see four sets of numbers 30,87 an 85,86 ! 30 an 87 are the power side ! One of these will or should have B+ voltage , the other goes to the fuel pump . You could take a piece of wire an jump 30 an 87 , in the fuse box where the relay plug's into . The fuel pump should run ! The control side 85 an 86 , one will have B+ voltage an the other will be open circuit , unless you crank the engine ! The PCM supplies a ground when an input from the crank sensor is sensed. Videos on youtube on trouble shooting an testing fuel pump electrical circuits .

Fuel Relays failing constantly

check the prongs where the relay plugs in- if corrosion or crud clean and check power --with the new pump check those connections are clean and check for chafing or damaged wiring --the fuel pump may be laboring and pulling higher amps and over heating relay new doesnt mean free from defects --fuel pump overheating and popping relay

2000 mazda 626 new fuel pump still not geting fuel new relay also

Well it definitely sounds like you have a fuel supply issue with the starting fluid check. The fuel pump relay is controlled by the PCM with input from the immobilizer system. Power for both the coil and switch within the fuel pump relay is supplied thru the Main relay. I would first remove the fuel pump relay, turn key to on position and use a test light to see if you have power/voltage to 2 of the 4 pins of the fuel pump relay plug in connector. If you do then the main relay and all related fuses are ok. You could then bypass the relay altogether by using a paper clip or other jumper wire to short between pin 30 and 87 or 87a on the relay connector. Pin number is located typically on the relay near the electrical plugs but since you have a new relay is probably not worth the test. The last thing is to see if the relay is being energized by the PCM by grounding the magnetic coil circuit. This is most probable. If your security light is flashing on cluster display then PCM is not grounding the relay as part of the security system. Now would be the time to ask it you are using a new key or different key to start the vehicle. The key has a chip inside that needs to be programmed for the engine or immobilizer computer to recognize as a valid and authorized key to start the vehicle. It immobilizer and pcm do not recognize the key as being authorized to be used then it will not power up the fuel pump relay and kill the fuel supply system.

Dont know which fuse operates fuel pump

) Unplug the main relay and then turn the key from off to ON(II).

2) Use a jumper wire or paperclip to jump terminal 1 to terminal 7 in the main relay plug. Does the fuel pump run?

3) Now use the jumper wire or paperclip to jump terminal 5 to terminal 7 in the main relay plug. Does the fuel pump run?

My 1993 E-350 club wagon wont start Code: 542 =

Replace the TCM to fix the converter clutch problem.. The line 12 volt is direct power from the battery and 7 volts out the I am suspicious off as I think that the coil for the relay is partially shorting out to give the 7 volts. As for the other wire 12 volts in would be ok but if there is nothing out unless it is a relay that has not closed because the relay coil has not activated correctly.. Check the readings against a new relay.

I have a 1996 mustang v6 no power to fuel pump. Bought used fuel pump relay still have np power. Safty switch is good. Unpluged fuel turned switch on and i have constant power of 9.52 volts plug in pump...

9.5 volts sounds like the power coming from the gas gauge.
I am showing a relay module with the fuel pump and pcm relays built in along with two other relays. The fuel pump relay should not be accessable. In most cases the pump relay gets power from a 20amp fuse and the computer grounds the relay when needed. Power goes from the pump relay to the inertia switch then to the pump. So the inertia switch should be hot when the pump relay is activated.

I am getting power to the relay, but the power is not getting to the fuel pump, Can you tell me how to track the power so that it reaches the pump?

put the car on a jack drop the fuel pump making sure it is empty then on the top of the pump the is a connector pull that off and with an ohm turn the key to on and test that the plug is getting amps if it is then you need a new fuel pump but I’m pretty sure that’s the reason is your fuel pump when bad

Fuel pump power

There is a fuel pump relay. Check your manual in the golve box for the location, or ask the parts store. If you have no power at the fuel tank that is your most likely source of the problem, Take a test light and check the legs of the fuel pump relay. There should be power at two of them. if there is no power there, save your money and take it to a professional because it will take an expert to track down the reason for no power.

Power to the fuelpump.

Could be a loose plug, bad ground, or a faulty relay. You'd have to get a wiring diagram and track down all the plugs and grounds so find out where the fault is.

Fuel Pressure

Most vehicles other than Fords don't have fuel pump switches. You'll have to track this through the wiring harness...but I'd check the fuel relay first.

The sputtering...replace the ignition wires and plugs, then the coil pack. Still not...get to someone with an analyser. Water in the gas is rarely a problem today...the ethanol in the gas is almost the same stuff in the 'water remover'.
