SOURCE: How do you check voltage on the fuel pump on a

Hello Dennis.
When you are checking fuel pump voltage on your pickup when you turn on the key the voltage is only applied to the pump for a couple of seconds unless you go to cranking position.
There are 4 wires leading to the fuel pump on your truck. The gray wire is the 12 volt positive power feed to the fuel pump and the black provides the ground. The orange and purple wires are your fuel gauge wires.
The relay for the fuel pump is in your under hood fuse panel and I believe is marked on the underside of the fuse panel cover. It should click on and off again quickly when you turn the key to "on". Having a helper to cycle the key would be handy while you put your finger on the relay and listen to it. Just because it clicks still doesn't mean it's functional but relay failure on these models is somewhat rare.
I would start by checking for power at the fuel pump harness.
Fuel pump issues are quite common on these model year trucks.
Hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: 96 chevy truck, fuel pump relay switch (located under the hood, driver's side wheel well) keeps shorting out and melting fuse panel

I would replace the fuel pump and the fuel pump connector, both have problems in this year that cause excessive current draw and blow the fuse and overheat the system. If the relay socket terminals are discolored from heat that must be replaced as well. Of course before replacing any parts have a GM dealer confirm the problems i have guessed are to the cause.

My Ford Windstar fuel pump work, relay, and fuse work also but there is no power on my fuel pump, any ideas?


Have you checked your fuel shut off valve. It is behind the taillight on the passenger side, open the door where the jack is and look toward the back of the taillight. Should be a black box with a red button on top, if its tripped then all you have to do is push it down you will hear it click and the button will stay down. I try to locate you a wiring diagram. Good luck

Location of inertia switch


As far as I know a Chevrolet doesn't have an inertia switch like a Ford.
I am assuming you have lost fuel pressure, first thing to check is the fuel pump relay (usually in a fuse box under the hood) make sure you have power to that point (you should hear it clicking when you turn the key on) if you have power chances are you have a bad fuel pump. If you have lost key power to the relay, check the fuel pump relay fuse in the dash for power ( if the fuse is bad replace the fuse and the relay) if no power to the relay fuse you may have a faulty ignition switch, its a common problem with 00-06 Chevy's across the board.

I own a 2007 chevy uplander and I am having trouble with the fuel pump. I know now that the fuel pump works, is not getting any volts. Now we're looking for the pump inertia switch and cannot seem...


This vehicle does not have an inertia switch. Just to keep it down to the basics, have you checked the fuel pump fuse in the underhood fuse block? Fuse #2, 15 amp. Should be blue in color. See if the little element inside the fuse is snapped open. If it is, something is putting an excessive load(or a short circuit somewhere) on the fuse causing it to blow. If not, also check the fuel pump relay in the same underhood fuse block. See if it clicks when you turn the key to the on/run position (engine off). If you're feeling particularly tech savvy, you can look at the diagram on the side of the fuel pump relay and jump voltage across the terminals where it plugs into the fuse block to see if the fuel pump will turn on. You can also use the diagram on the side of the relay to probe with the fuse block with a test light to see if the relay is getting the voltage it needs.

Truck will not start and i need to know where the fuel pump relay is located?


Your fuel pump relay is in the under the hood fuse box and should be marked. If not looking into the fuse box you"ll have two rows of fuses (side by side ) totaling 18 fuses, there are two relay just above the two rows of fuses and the one directly above the fuses is the fuel pump relay. Also you mite want to check your inertia switch and make sure the red center button is depressed ! you"ll find the inertia switch located behind the right hand kick panel (down on the floor inside the vehicle,passengers side ) good luck thanks for using fixya

No power to fuel pump car was running fine just quit repalced fuel pump no power to pump, car will start when spraying starting fluid in to intake, is there a fuse ? also replaced ECM, fuel filter,...


Check for 12 volts power at the fuel pump harness. If no power is going to the pump, check the fuel pump relay. Also, check the fuel pump inertia switch. Ford usually has it on either inside left or right rear trunk fenders.

1997 Ford F150 Electric Fuel Pump will npt pump


Did you check the fuel inertia switch in the passenger side kick panel ?

The fuel pump is powered :
the fuse to the fuel pump relay.
The fuel pump relay to the fuel inertia switch
The fuel inertia switch to the fuel pump itself.

At the fuel inertia switch in the kick panel, power from the relay is the Dark Green w/ Yellow stripe wire and the pink w/ black stripe wire is the power. from the fuel inertia switch to the fuel pump.

If you jumper the fuel pump relay, you should hear it run. If not pull the fuel pump relay, and check the pins in the relay socket, pin 30 should be the power from the fuse.

50b0c31.jpg

If you have power at pin #30, jumper the relay socket as shown with the red line above, and check the dark green w/ yellow stripe wire at the fuel inertia switch for power.
Press the button on the top of the fuel inertia switch, and check for power leaving the fuel inertia switch on the pink w/ black stripe wire.

This is tests good, check for power at the fuel pump, same pink w/ black stripe wire.
Fuel inertia switch info is in the owners manual, If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :

Fuel pump relay


In the fuse box, (under the hood), lower right corner. C1051....if you think its bad, there are others like it in the fuse box you can swap with. If the fuel pump doesnt work, be sure to check the INERTIA SWITCH. I cant tell you how many fuel pumps are replaced because no one checked that switch. If the Inertia Switch is good, have someone rap on the bottom of the fuel tank while you are cranking the engine over, if it starts then, the fuel pump is bad.
