Look for your ecu relay its above your mustangs ecu. Look behind the passengers side scuff plate. Its kinda tough to reach on the 87-93 5.0 Mustangs it may be easier on your 4 banger try to access it by releasing the glove box retainers by squeezing side of box once opened it should pop loose for you. Now look to the right there should be a Classic 80's style ford relay take this relay off replace it also check your fuel pump relay as it may be causing these issues. On my 87 5.0 the fuel pump relay is under the drivers side seat, yours might be in the same spot if not look for the relay located by maf in the engine bay. The relay looks identical to the ecu relay replace this also might as well since you're troubleshooting a car over 20 years old...... I think you can get them for 5-10 bucks at any auto parts place. hope this helps you or another person with the same issue on their stang. Look at picture for what these relays should look like I circled it for you.

If you replaced the fuel pump then there is a possibility that during the job then some debris from the tank and/or filter got loose somewhere into the fuel system and is in your lines. It could even be a very tiny speck of gasket material, old or new.

SOURCE: my 98 windstar gl is not getting the ground comand

If you don't think your getting the ground command through your PCM, you can make your own ground just by bypassing the PCM all together. First you need to find a PCM connector end view showing which pins are which wires and locate the ground you need for that circuit. Then you need enough wire to loosely run from your battery negative terminal to the PCM connector. I you can back probe the PCM ground wire with a sewing needle and wrap the new wire around it, and attach the other end to the batt. neg. your just allowing the PCM to get it's ground another way. If it still doesn't start, try swapping fuel pump relays w/ a head light relay or one w/ the same part number on it. If you can't find one, just hot wire the pump relay again just to see if it starts and runs. If it does start and run you'll need to go to a wrecking yard and pick up a used PCM and maybe buy a relay for the fuel pump. I sincerely hope this info helps in some way.

SOURCE: 91 ford ranger...fuel pump will not run pump is good

It won't hurt to jump sire to drive, It is designed to pump all time when the engine is running. The only problem is the pump should not be on if engine is not running since it is designed that way to prevent a fire while pump continues on once engine is stops in a car accident. There is a control device to immobilize the fuel pump, if there is no speed sensor signal from the crankshaft. This needs to be located and fixed.

SOURCE: I have a 1992 Lincoln Mark vii lsc. Fuel pump problem!

This sounds like the PCM has taken a turn for the worst. The pcm relay sends power to the fuel relay for 2 seconds to prime the fuel system just before start up.
Then the pcm ungrouds the signal for a prove out.

Code B2583 diagnosis


It would seem to be a fuse or fusible link problem. Check the wiring diagram in the shop manual for the vehicle and check the fusible link that is common to headlight and fuel pump power supply and the other systems which are not working. If the fusible link checks okay check the main multipoint connector in the main wiring harness to the fuse block from the battery.

1989 f-250 inertia fuel shut-off switch switch location


This should be in the owner's manual. I found the below on autozone.com, their repair help location:
An inertia switch is used as a safety device in the fuel system. The inertia switch is located in the cab, generally under the dashboard on the right side. It is designed to open the fuel pump power circuit in the event of a collision. The switch is reset by pushing each of 2 buttons on the switch simultaneously (some models use switches with only one reset button). The inertia switch should not be reset until the fuel system has been inspected for damage or leaks.
When the ignition switch is ON , it turns the EEC power relay ON . The EEC power relay provides power to the powertrain control module (PCM) and the control side of the fuel pump relay. Power for the fuel pump(s) is supplied through a fuse link or high current fuse attached to the starter solenoid (battery side). From the fuse link or high current fuse, current flows through the fuel pump relay and inertia switch to the fuel pump(s). The fuel pump relay is controlled by the PCM.
When the ignition switch is turned ON , the fuel pump(s) will operate. If the ignition switch is not turned to the START position the PCM will shut the fuel pump(s) OFF after 1 second. The PCM will operate the fuel pump(s) operate the fuel pump(s) when the ignition switch is turn to START position to provide fuel while cranking.
After the engine starts, the PCM will continue to operate the fuel pump(s) unless the engine stops, drops below 120 rpm or the inertia switch is tripped.

Trying to locate the fusible link to the fuel pump in the 1999 buick lesabre


No fuseable link wire that I know of.
The fuel pump relay gets power from fuses in the box.
They may be marked pump or PCM.
The computer or PCM grounds the relay to power the pump.

one thing to look for is your gas gauge. if it doesnt read or your wagon constantly stops then i would go with the fuel pump. replace the pump and replace the fuel line any water in that line would be bad.

What if any and where is the 1997 Oldsmobile fuel pump switch location. Installed new pump and would not start. I am being asked if we turned on the switch? What switch?


The fuel pump is controlled by a fuel pump relay, and the relay is powered by a fusible link attached at the starter positive cable, and there is also an inline fuse between the fusible link and the relay. Check at the fuel pump connector at the fuel tank for current. When the ignition switch is turned on, engine not running, the fuel pump should receive current for about 3 to 5 seconds; then the ignition has to be turned off for about 10 seconds, and when turned to the on position should give power to the fuel pump again for a 3 to 5 second interval. If ther4's no power at the fuel pump connector the problem is either the relay or the wiring between the fusible link and the relay.

91 ford ranger...fuel pump will not run pump is good


Maybe you need to test the (pcm) power relay, it controls the fuel pump relay. Once the key is turned on the pcm will initialize the power relay, it in turn will turn on the fuel relay for 2 seconds to prime the fuel rail prior to starting. Since the pump runs continuosly, it means the pcm isnt properly grounding the ckt or the relay is faulty.

1988 ford truck f-150 xlt lariat cant get current to fuel pump


Have you checked the 'inertia switch' which in the event of an accident shuts off the fuel supply to prevent a fire . It's usually located in the cab on pass. side. Some models have one reset button, some 2 which have to be pressed at the same time. If that's not it, here's how the power to the pump SHOULD work, you will have to follow the path to see where it stops. When you turn the key on it turns on the EEC power relay on, this relay then provides power to the PCM (power control module) and the control side of the fuel pump relay. Power for the fuel pump is supplied through a fuse link or high current fuse attached to the starter solenoid (battery side). From the fuse link or high current fuse current flows thru the fuel pump relay and inertia switch to the fuel pump. The fuel pump relay is controlled by the PCM. When the ignition switch is turned on the fuel pump will operate, if the switch is NOT turned to start position, the PCM will shut off the fuel pump off after 1 second. This is to avoid flooding the engine when it is not running, just key on. So check out to see if you have a fuse link or a high current fuse and if they are blown.

New fuel pump


Sounds like a after market pump? I did the same thing.Go Ac/Delco for the best case.Note no sound no fuel.Try the old turn the key on and give the tank a kick.This kinda kick starts the pump.Idone this a few times.If you are stuck and your pump stops and it did start by kick don't stop the engine till you are home or a shop.
