    Did you check the emergency fuel cutoff switch? The switch is located inside the jack storage compartment found at the right rear of the vehicle. It has a red button on the top of the switch. The button should be fully depressed.

    Good luck,

) Unplug the main relay and then turn the key from off to ON(II).

2) Use a jumper wire or paperclip to jump terminal 1 to terminal 7 in the main relay plug. Does the fuel pump run?

3) Now use the jumper wire or paperclip to jump terminal 5 to terminal 7 in the main relay plug. Does the fuel pump run?

Do you hear the fuel pump running on the prime cycle (when you turn on the key) (runs for 3 seconds) or when you have oil pressure?Have someone listen back by the tank for the wrrrrr.If you do have to change the fuel pump,make your life easy and just tilt up (lift) the pickup box from the drivers side to access the fuel pump.Takes 20 minutes to change it that way.

Cant find the fuel pump fuse in a 2002 galant


Your vehicle actually has two fuel pump relay's ! You can view fuse box diagram here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter your vehicle info. year , make , model and engine size . Under system click on electrical distribution ,then under subsystem click on junction block . Then click on the search button , then the first blue link . Scroll down you'll see fuse box diagram . Do you know how to do electrical testing where the relay plug's into the junction box ? Check for B+ voltage , control from the PCM / ECM or ECU what ever Mitsubishi call's the engine computer . The computer will energize the fuel pump for two seconds to prime the fuel system , it won't turn it on again untill it see's a input from the crankshaft position sensor while cranking the engine. Videos on youtube testing fuel pump electrical circuit .

Toy turns over but wont run change fuel filter n fuel pump still


The fuel pump should run for a second or two when you first turn the key on, but then shuts down to prevent the engine from flooding if the computer does not get a signal from the crank or cam sensors which the computer uses to trigger the ignition system. So no spark no fuel. Check to see if you have a spark in the ignition system.

Check your ignition/fuel pump relay---it's with all the other relays in a dash tray---it's ORANGE---check it for dead-short.
