99 montero fuel pump relays

Fuel pump relays are designed to trigger the power from using the power system of the vehicle to a direct battery power connection. Relays save the sensitive power used accessories by not robbing the power from them and bypassing them to use the power right from the battery source.

For example, if a relay was not used for the pump, it would lower the idle on your car everytime it turned on. Having a relay allows the pump to run and not steal valuable voltage from the cars system. These fuel relays are also a safety device in case of a car accident. The car has shock sensors that react in a car accident and shut the fuel pumps off through the relays so the occupants do not burn in an accident. If these continued to run after an accident and fuel continued to be pumped at a high pressure rate, you can imagine what the consequences might be.

Relays make the route to the battery to run the item, more direct. Bypassing the cars needed power to run the vehicle.

Installed new blower motor. bearing shelled in old one. new motor won't blow. tested . it's good don't have power to moter. fuses good relay good. isthere a circuit breaker in wiring for b

I don't have a diagram for a 2008. On 2005 models the blower motor relay gets power from a 30amp fuse.
When the blower switch is in the high position the resistor is bypassed and power flows directly to the motor. The motor is grounded to the car.
The fan relay also gets power from a 7.5amp fuse and is controlled by the HVAC control on the dash.
Do you have power into and out of the relay?

2000 rodeo will not crank checked fuel pump and relays they are good .When I bypass relay it runs fine anyone know whats wrong

Sounds like the relay isn't receiving it's signal power to close and activate the main power to the fuel pump. Test to make sure it's getting the power when you first turn on the key [ The PCM will turn it off after a few seconds if it dosen't sense a imput from the Crank Sensor that the engine is running ]. If there's no power there, first look for a blown fuse and make sure there's power to the fuse, if not then you will have to test back thru the circuit to find the cause [ also check the igntion switch].

My 91 jeep wrangler 4.0 will shut down all power at all speeds from idle to driving on the interstate. I jumped out the auto shutdown relay and it works fine but i cannot find the auto shutdown switch to...

There is no switch. The relay gets a signal from the computer. If there is no signal from the crank position sensor the computer will not close the relay. If it runs with the relay bypassed, chances are good that the relay itself is bad.

Car won't start,can't hear fuel pump come on when i cycle do i know if it's the pump or maybe a relay.

the only way is to "bypass the relay" if there is power at the relay and you feed power directly to the pump and it has a good ground and it does not work, then the pump is bad. sometimes if you feed it power directly,(by pass the relay) whack the bottom of the tank, if you hear it start to run, then the pump is bad.

Overheating at idle

That's because cadillac replaced it with an upgraded switch. to find out if your relay is bad bypass the relay and directly jump the fans to find out if the fans still work. if you don' know how to do this find a friend that does.

1987 nissan pulsar

Question is, does fuel pump relay come in/ go out when ignition switched on? How do you know "no power source to fuel pump", was that because bypassing the relay didn't cause it to run? Or did you check for supply to the pump and find nothing doing?.
Sounds rather like a frozen pump to me... or a blown fuse??
