Confusing, 1990 , CADDY a TOYOTA Escalade?

all cars have huge options, and one harness.
so vast numbers of connectors are just there. ignore them.
seems... seems in science is no good, we work in absolutes.
or better valid ranges. (as a pilot says, "in the envelope")
ill try to answer both cars, the relic toy and 2000 CAD

we fix cars by diagnosis.
the first is to tell the helper what is wrong.
it dont start. (right?
and you check both fuse boxes, for blown fuses, right?
do you have spark? y/n? on all spark plugs.? y/n
if you have spark does spray in test fuel start engine
even for 3 seconds>? a key test.
yes, then you have low fuel pressure.
no, bad engine. (or you lied about spark , lol)

now fuel pressure.
the ECU can cut fuel and pump if it sees spark go bad
this prevents crash and burn,.like as seen on TV.
connect a scan tool is there DTC 340,355 being thrown cranking 5 seconds. yes, bad crank/cam sensors. or RPM is 0 cranking
bad ckp. senor.

so, rule 2, the ECU, many not, (READ FSM) run pump
until it is cranking
so you check for 12vdc at the pump cranking,
ok i got 12v
i then check fuel pressure with a real gauge.
it see 0psi, bad pump. see 10 psi bad pump or stuck open fuel
40PSI normal there is a range, but ask.
pressure reg. see 65PSI, fuel pressure reg stuck closes or return line blocked.
no guessing ,simple tests tools $80 total.

so does test fuel run engine> do that.
ever do a tune up?
ever check spark plug tips for wet or dry , after a failed crankup?
dry, no fuel. add some.
wet ,flooding.. crank using super secret WOT.

ok a direct quote from the FSM TOY.

  1. Using a jumper wire, short terminals FP and +B of the check connector.<< this is the diagnostic port.
  2. Turn the ignition switch ON, but do NOT start the car.
  3. The fuel pressure should read 38-44 psi (265-304 kPa).
  4. If the pressure is too high, the pressure regulator is probably defective. If it is too low, check for the following:
    1. Fuel hoses and connections for leaks or restrictions.
    2. Defective fuel pump.
    3. Clogged fuel filter.
    4. Defective pressure regulator.
now the direct quote for CAD FSM.
what engine,there are many?
rule 1 , 2000
ever scan the ECU/PCM for error cranking or must we do this the hardway.
key off
pressure gauge on rule rail
not started engine.
60-66 psi is normal. (books shows scan too activate)

the FSM shows the leak down test too, at this port.
it also says using CAD scan tool command on the fuel pump.
says tool only allows 2 seconds run time,
but you can check it cranking or cranking then key
off see how fast 60psi drops.
there are many pump tests. and the leak down rate
and injector leak down test.
all this requires a fuel pressure gauge
and reading the tests on or buy the full FSM from CAD.

Im sure the CAD only has pump power (12v) cranking and running
and running it drops about 10psi and rises at high altitude.
they wouldn't need

PUMP operation rules are complex.
this is all hard coded in the PCM brain this logic.
most cars are,
if sparks good, and not W.O.T cranking and cmp and CKP are
happen run pump and inject.
if not , cut fuel.
some cars cut the pump after 2 seconds running, its hard coded logic. if spark is bad.
many mech dont know this. but the only variace ive ever seen is
some cars do make fuel pressure. just key on, for 3 seconds.
mostly older cars.
my guess you posted in the Toyota section?

Testimonial: "yes s[ray test it vranks and cuts right off i tried to check for rpark and didnt see ome> took fuel filter off murky and dirty but filled wit gas tried cranking with filter off alittle gas poured out not really hearing pump go one but key was on as iremoved filter and there was a noise under the engine. car has actually been trying to turn over and once it does crank sound lkike normal when ay first it sounded sick this is the 2000 cad ran mostly all tests. found an otange and blue wire coming from the compartment beetween dash and engine orange wire had the flat metal surface like it was grounded< seems like i have a disconnect somewhere"

SOURCE: no start/no power to fuel pump/ power at one small wire/relay fuses ok/

most newer cars have a relay in the fuel system to shut it off when fuel pressure drops below the norm. this keeps your car from running lean and burning a piston. i whould replace the fuel pump. the fuel pump may work when you take it out but that dont mean it has enough pressure to opperate your car.

hope this helps . good luck

SOURCE: Need connector block connections for horn wire,relay to button.

The horn switch provides a ground. If you have no voltage at the horn wire, inside the steering whel, I would suspect a bad spiral cable, or clockspring under the steering wheel.

My 1999 ford escorts cooling fan is not working

These are normally easy to diagnose if you know a little about vehicle maintenance...Check the fan fuse/relay to begin with..Check all connections/wiring to fan...Also it has a sensor..The best way to eliminate if the fan is bad or not is to use simple jumper wires..Disconnect fan motor connector and take two jumper wires..the fan motor should have two connectors..Run one wire to hot battery post and one to negative battery post ..Connect one to hot connector of motor and one to ground..If fan doesn't work fan is faulty..

Where is the fuel pump relay and fuse located on a '91 Buick Park Avenue? And is there a reset for the fuel system?

fuel pump relay: on relay center,behind glove box, 2nd column of relays, 2nd one from the top.
fuse: the wiring diagram says that it is fuse #6 on/by?? the relay center.
there should be a fuel pump test connector taped to the harness by/behind the battery. probably single red wire with a black or white connector. apply 12 volts to connector to test fuel pump.

Mazda 5 will not start

Late response but... If the starter relay clicks when you turn the ignition then the issue is ENGINE side of fuse box. It is not anything to do with anti theft systems/computers/ECU’s/BCU’s/MAF or anything else. All these things kick in before the starter relay, if the starter relay does not click then it could be a faulty relay so try swapping that first. If it still won’t click then the issue is ignition side of fuse box and I’m afraid it could be any of the things above.
OK if the relay is clicking then the ignition is telling the car to start and the issue must be either that there is no signal getting to the starter motor solenoid or that the starter motor is not working. On most mazdas of this generation the wire that sends 12v from the relay to the starter motor solenoid is suspect. The wire is red and slightly thicker than the others that leave the fuse box, it attaches to the solenoid on the starter motor via a spade connection. The connection is often loose and corroded and a simple clean up with abrasive paper and a tightening by gently squeezing the female connector with pliers before refitting will solve the issue.
I have seen people replace starter motors and batteries for no reason when cleaning the connector would have solved the problem for free. A new battery sometimes cures the issue for a while (more charge so jumps through the corrosion better than the old battery) but the issue returns because ITS NOT THE BATTERY!!
My Mazda 5 did this for months, start fine for a week then not start for days, start in the morning then not at night. Two garages and an auto electrician couldn’t work out what was wrong - I traced the wiring and bingo! loose wire.
I unplugged the wiring harness from the fuse box too, sprayed plenty of electrical contact cleaner in there and left it to dry. Anyway that’s was about a year ago and mine has started every time since, hot or cold, short or long journey.
In case you need to know - fuse box is the black plastic rectangle under the bonnet on your right side (as you face the car from the front) - top unclips to reveal relays and wiring harness connector (big bunch of wires that can be unclipped and pulled free)
Starter motor accessed from below it is bolted to the front of engine with the solenoid and suspect wire connector on the top of the main starter.
Good luck ??

Which is the hot wire on a 1999 dodge dakota trailer plug? is it the black and what is the red/yellow wire for?

On a seven pin connector the black wire is ground. There is no red/yellow wire, but there is a red/tan wire. That is the power supply wire. It is fed by the 40amp fuse number 6 in the power distribution center. Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

On the back of the radio on a 1994 dodge what pin in the back is the hot wire goes on`looking at the back if it lift to right

The connectors are slightly different depending on which radio system you have. The wiring schematics only say connector 1 and connector 2, so I can't tell you which is left and which is right. All the systems use the same pins for the hot wires, however. They are pin #6 and pin #7 in connector #1 They are (as you may have guessed by the numbers) right next to each other. Pin #6 is RED/WHITE and is hot only with the ignition switch in the ACCESSORY or RUN positions. It is protected by fuse # 12 in the Fuse and Relay Box (Under the left side of the dash). It is a 10 Amp fuse. Pin #7 is PINK and is hot at all times. It is protected by fuse #F2 in the Power Distribution Center. (In the engine compartment, left side) It is a 5 Amp fuse.

I need the fuel system diagram for a 1998 Chevy Tahoe w/ 5.7L gasoline engine

Dark green provides power to fuel pump relay from the ECU. Orange wire at fuel pump relay is power at all time and is provide from the ECM/Bat Fuse at fuse block (Left side of dash). It also connects to the fuel pump oil pressure switch. The grey wire at relay provides power to the fuel pump and fuel pum oil pressure switch. The red plug thats tape to harness from relay/fuse center is the prime connector..

The plug that connects to the alternator has three

Yes the White wire is the reason. It goes to the Internal Regulator.
As you view the connector that plugs into your alternator, look at where the lock tab is.
Lock tab on TOP. The Black wire goes to the Left side. The White wire goes to the Right side.

The Black wire, ties into the Red wire down in the wire loom. (The Red wire goes to the starter solenoid, and this is connected straight to the battery. This is why the Red, AND the Black wire, are both Hot wires)

The White wire goes through the bulkhead wire loom, and to the bulkhead connector.

(Down under the steering shaft, and on the firewall, you'll see a rectangular Black box shape, with a Bunch of wires, coming into it from the engine compartment. The bulkhead connector is two pieces. Following it through the firewall, the other side of it is the fuse panel)

Where the White wire connects in the fuse panel,
it should go straight to the ACC fuse. (Accessory)
