Do you hear a hum with the click? If you don't then i would say the pump is bad. Chk. all electrical connections to pump and try again.

    Did you try running 12v directly to the pump and see if it will run?

I replaced the turn signal switch and now it wont start. i can hear the fuel pump kick on. makes no sense


You said you hear the pump come on, then said fuel pump not running ???
Check the fuse for the pump, preferably with a test light to verify power is there. Key must be in on position. If the fuse is powered, feel for the fuel pump relay to click when you turn key to on. Put your finger on it while someone turns key to on. If it clicks, check for power at the tank connector on the pump wire, while the engine is cranked. If power there when cranking, the pump must have failed and needs replacing. If the relay clicked with key on, and no power at the pump wire at tank while cranking, then check wiring from relay to pump connector-the fuel wire may have broken.
If the relay doesn't click when key turned on, check for the power feed for the pump at the relay terminal. If the relay has power available to be transmitted to pump, then the relay's signal from the computer or the ground side of the relay's coil signal (from the computer) may need checked.
If the pump is working, and you have good pressure in the lines, check the injector circuit. Also a fused circuit, so check the fuse first. The injector should have a steady voltage signal to it with key on. The injector only has two wires, the power wire and the ground wire which goes to the computer. When the computer momentarily grounds the injector circuit, the injector "pulses", causing fuel to spray out the bottom.

I just put a fuel pump in my 2000 chevy silverado 2 weeks ago and now it wont run and all the fuel pump will do is click when you turn the key on but it only clicks once?


spray gasoline or carb cleaner into intake. If engine starts, it's a fuel problem. You have a bad (new) fuel pump or relay. Either no power to pump or pump is bad (unlikely but possible).

What's your problem?Hi I have a 90 convertible mustang 5.0. My problem is the fuel pump wont shut off when you turn key on. It runs and runs and car wont start. Ive checked all injectors, changed


Dear Charlie,
May I suggest you take the car to a good (old?) mechanic and have it "changed?".
Right now the fuel pump is hooked to the battery directly, which is why the pump will not turn off.
Please have him hook the pump up so it only runs when the ignition is on.
God bless your efforts.

1991 f-159 4.9l cranks but won't start fuel pumps in both tanks loud


fuel pump should only run for about 15 seconds when u first turn the key on now you should check to see if the fuel filter is clogged or your sending unit might be bad on the fuel pump itself

2002 blazer crank but wont start


2 things that you have to check on no starts every time. Spark at spark plug and fuel. Turn key to run position and listen at gas tank for fuel pump to run you should hear a whining noise. This will only happen for 3 to 4 seconds then it will shut off until engine starts. You can turn key off then to run every 3 to 4 to listen for fuel pump. You may hear the relay click off in engine area even if pump does not run. Fuel pump failure is pretty common. If pump is running pull spark plug out or put a spare plug into spark plug wire and have someone crank engine set plug on engine and watch for spark. This will give you a starting point. Hope it helps.

Turn key to start-engine turns and i have spark wont start


I would check fuel pressure so you can rule out pump. I had a bad pump right out of the box before. Also you may want to change fuel filter so you can rule out plugged filter. You have spark, sure seems like still no fuel.

Car wont start


THere is no gas in the fuel rail at the time gas is running out. WHen you fill the tank, it needs to pump for a while so fuel can fill up the rail then the Fuel distributor so it can build up pressure for the injectors to work properly. It need to continue cranking at least 2 minutes. However you don't want to run out the battery, so can just turn on the key to hear the sound of the fuel pump stops, then turn key off turn key on again. Repeat this for 6 times then start the engine. The reason for it is that every time the key is on it turns on the fuel pump to prime the line then turns pump off after a specific time, then it turns on again only when key is at ignition position. By doing this you help to pump gas into the fuel rail instead of the starter continue cranking draining down battery fast. Cheers.

My s 10 turns over but wont start will run on stating fluid


Turn the key to "on" don't crank it, just turn it to the position before. Listen at that time for a relay to click or the fuel pump to hum (you may need someone close to the fuel tank since this is a truck) If you don't hear either I would start by checking for 12V running to the fuel pump. If the voltage is there, the pump is probably faulty. Good luck, hope this helps.

92 honda civic turns over fine but doesnt start


ok, this is a commom problem with this 92 hondas,

it may be the pump fuel relay, which is under the dash on the driver side by the fuse panel.

here is a way to determine that.

when you turn the key on the on position

do you hear the fuel pump running while the engine light is on, and does the pump stop running afteer the engine light goes off?

if you do hear the pump running then it means that fuel pump is working fine ( since it way just replaced), but if you don't hear it running while the check engine light is on ( about 2 seconds) chances are the fuel pump relay is not working as it should.


also there are clicks that have to be heard on the starting process.

1 when you turn key to on possition

2 when the check engine light goes off( a click has to be heard just after it goes off)

3 after the car starts

If you don't hear this clicks, try to get your ear close the location of the fuel pump relay( near the fuse panel under the dash).


the fuse relay is just a bunch of circuits soldered, so you can get it to someone who knows how to solder and fix it.

or just get a replacement one at any junkyard. ( cheapp)
