Are you sure the pump is not using the power ?
What happens if you jumper the relay - does the pump run ?

    When I put the pump to direct battery power it runs...brand new pump module in it. I am leaning towards PCM, but not wanting to just replace parts.

    That didn't really answer my question. The engine computer grounds the pump relay. Is the relay capable of powering the pump or not ?

SOURCE: No fuel or power to fuel pump.

If the relay is not getting ground signal to turn on then it sounds like a problem with the ECU this is fed from there. Commonly dry solder joints inside the ECU can cause this problem, they have a tendency to crack around the transistors and heavier load components and also components that are subject to mechanical vibration. He said that the fuel pump relay is located in the kick panel and the ECU is next to this. Id take out the ECU and remove the main circuit board and examine for dry solder joints. If you don't know what they look like its somthing like this

Hope this helps

SOURCE: 91 mr2. no power 2 the fuel pump. checked relays

When you say you have checked the relays and fuses i hope you checked to see if they have power getting to them. Besides that The most frequent cause of problems is simply a bad contact in wiring connectors. Always check that connections are secure. Inspect the contacts for bent pins or corroded. You may also want to inspect the ground side of the circuit. If everything checks out then you have a bad fuel pump.

SOURCE: no voltage to fuel injectors and fuel pump relay

Check for a fusable link. A fuseable link is a wire that blows just like a fuse when overlaoded or tripped. Im not sure where thay are on your vehicle but they commonly are beside the fuse box under the hood or along the back of the fire wall. You have to cut the plastic housuing around them to expose them. I would either pick up a chilton repair book or call the parts dealer to find the exact location.

1996 mercury villager / pump wont run

The only way to actually check as you said,which means
using at least a volt meter to me, to do actual voltage checks,
is to have a wiring diagram of the system & circuits your have
problems with

The pump works,so I guess you put battery voltage to it
somewhere in the circuit that is complete or at the pump

No voltage at whatever fuses your at,you now work your way
to the battery with the use of a wiring diagram

Sounds like a corrosion or wiring connection issues, given the
year 1996

What I don't see in your question is the main issue
Sounds like you went from the pump back toward the
fuses & battery & the beginning of the fuel pump circuit is

I guess you removed & tested the relays (component tested)

Haven't missed much,just have to continue, but can't find &
test what you don't know about,need that reference material

Dodge 1500 1995 pickup 7.5 volts to fuel pumpwill not start applied 12 volts pump runs book sayes pcm de-energize booth relayes and will not send proper voltage to fuel pump

There is a red and white wire feeding the fuel pump relay from a 30 amp fuse. Both the shutdown relay and the fuel pump relay are grounded by the PCM, so if the fuel pump relay is grounded it should be "on" and providing a direct link from the pump to that fuse.
You should have battery voltage on that 30 amp wire before the relay and then on the dark green and black wire going to the pump.
If you don't have battery voltage coming from the 30 amp fuse, the problem could be before the fuse.
That 30 amp fuse is hot all the time, so it is powered by a fuseable link coming off the battery.

Fuel Pump 2000 Bravada changed but still not working... help!!!!!!

You check the relay?Make a tool out of the relay take the relay apart collapse make full contact and stick it back in,key does the fuel pump come on?If yes keep it like this for 15 minutes if the vehicle stall,the problem is not the fuel pump, The ECM must see a RPM of 250 or more in order to turn the fuel pump on. If it doesnt see a RPM of a 250 it doesnt even know its running.Okay back to the tool you made,This only trouble shoot the fuel pump system

I'm working on a 97' Oldsmobile Siloutte. I thought that I was having an issue with the fuel pump so I changed it. However, it turns out that the old fuel pump wasn't defective. It's...

The PCM does not supply the voltage to the fuel pump . All the PCM does is energize the fuel pump relay ,closing contacts in side the relay which connects the fuel pump with a B+ voltage supply from Fuel pump fuse 15amp location , under hood fuse box . You have a high resistance problem in the wiring to the fuel pump . bad connection , corrosion etc... Mastering Voltage Drop Testing with Pete Meier and Jerry Truglia

Replaced fuel pump truck ran fine then sendingunit quit working . i was checking fuses by pulling them one at a time now fuel pump will not work checked to see if it had power to pump .could not get power

The oil pressure send ing unit is a back up power supply for the fuel pump moter its a safty thing. Check fuse # 9 When the fuel pump is replaced the wires need to be cut and spliced because they had a problem with the wires giing to the pump over heating so the new pump has a differant connector the old one will not fit into it check the 4 wire connection splice I dought its the relay thats in the glove box thats what the back up is all about through the oil pressure unit the vehicle would still get power to the fuel pump even if the relay was bad I have a wireing schematic of a 2000 if you want it give my an Email address and i will send it to you pier-j
