If this speratic problem seams to happen most when it's raining or damp, it is a shorting master contol that is to blame. The master control mother board is located on the firewall. Over time, the moisture seal on the cover fails and the motherboard gets damp and meny false signals are sent. This can even happen if the truck is off and key is not in the ignition (this mother board will alwas have power going to it as long as the battery is connected). A cheap way to check this is to remove the cover, put a plastic grocery bag over the mother board and use an small elastic band to close the open end, allow the wires connected to the mother board to go out the open end. If this solves the problem, replace the seals on the master control cover. Care should be taken as if there is ANY corrossion on the mother board, it will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: get spark, but no power to new fuel pump 1999 ford Ranger

the inertia switch is in front of the passenger seat, bolted to the fire wall, hidden by the carpet on an 89 and behind the kick panel on the 99. 99 should have a picture that looks like a gas station pump with a line thru it. pull panel off, push big red button. on 89 its the little grey button on the top.

If the car won't turn over your immediate problem is with the starter or the battery. subsequently if you have a bad battery you could also have a bad alternator not charging the battery. You problem isn't with the fuel pump as it does not assist the engine in cranking.

My 1992 ford explorer isnt getting gas. But it turns over just wont start

Possible bad fuel pump. Have someone turn the key to the on possition with out cranking the engine. While they do this crouch down by the rear of the truck.Listen for the fuel pump. It should make a wineing sound. If you do not hear the pump you should check for blown fuses and see if the fuel cutoff has been tripped. If all the fuses are good and the fuel cutoff is not tripped you probably have a bad fuel pump.

1999 ford escort sport wont start turns over

Check all fuses first. Then have someone listen near the back wheel when you first turn the key to "on" they should hear a hum if the fuel pump is working. If not, you will need a pressure tester for the fuel system to check for pressure at the test port near the engine. If OK, check for spark and injector pulse (you'll need noid lights for the injectors). If fuel pressure is low or none, you need a pump (don't replace till you check to see if it's getting power). If no spark or injector pulse, you probably need a Crank Position Sensor.

Won't start. I have change the wires, spark plugs, cover and rotator and it won't start. I am ready to burn the them truck. Sometimes I don't touch it for a week and when I tried it it's start right away....

Do you have spark?
Put one of the old plugs in a spark plug wire and crank her over.
Make sure the plug is grounded.
Any spark?
Most likely the ignition module.
Next would be the crank sensor.......or dist pickup.

Yes to spark?
Put a little gas down the throttle body.......and see if it starts on that.

Yes to a start then dies out?
No fuel.
Most likely the fuel pump in the tank.
Turn the key off for at least 10 seconds.
Have someone listen closely at the turn the key only to run should hear a prime cycle whirrrrr for about 1 or 2 seconds.
No noise? working pump.
Check all fuses........but it will most likely be first....fuel pump.....second....fuel pump power to the fuel system.
Yes to whirrrr.........then it's fuel injectors are opening if you have fuel injection.

Check this link. Hope this helps:)

Go get an inline spark tester. (Harbor Freight 3 bucks) If there is spark in the plugs then it is probably the fuel pump. Check\replace the relay first. If that not it then your fuel pump is probably bad. If you know how you can check the fuel rail pressure with a gauge to see if the pump is working. You can try to listen for the pump. You have to listen real close. Get inside the vehicle (close the doors)and put your ear to the floor in the cargo area. Have someone turn the key to the second click right before starting it. You should here it pressurize the fuel lines. If you done hear this then your fuel pump is bad. I hope this helps.

Fuel pump fuse, relay, or actual fuel pump, can you hear it run when you turn the switch to run if so then check your fuel filter.
Hope this helps!
