Why wont it start after running out of fuel


The car should start.

When the key is turned on the pump will only run for a second or so than stop. This is normal ans d is a saftey feature.

Try turning the key on to run and back to off several times to prime the fuel up to the fuel rail and fuel injectors. If you listen very carfully you can hear the pump cycle.

Confirm that you have put enough fuel into the tank to satisfy the feed level of the pump in the tank. It make take a few gallons depending on the angle of the car.

Hope this has helped?

Start a car after it has run out of gas?


If you ran the car empty it really only needs at least a gallon even on a hill it will start. Sometimes it takes 2-3 key cycles for full prime. If its still not starting you could have low fuel pressure , fuel pump could be faulty

Where is the fuel pump located?


What is your year--make--model--engine size? On a cold engine, you can try cycling the key on and off several times before you crank it, see if it helps? By doing that, your priming the fuel system.

Usually electric fuel pumps are in the gas tank, but, without year--make--model, I can't look up any info.

The fuel pump will run on a prime cycle for approx 5 seconds whenever the key is turned on, but only after it has been off for at least 10 seconds and whenever there is oil pressure.

You need to make sure you put in AT LEAST 2 gallons of gas, more if the car is not level. It might take a few cycles of the key to get the fuel line primed again. A full cycle is Off-On-Start. When you turn the key to on, listen for the fuel pump. It should run for a few seconds and then shut off, turn the key to start for a few seconds and then back to off... This will have to be repeated several times. You should be able to hear the fuel pump from the drivers seat. I will be a faint hum or hiss coming from the back seats.

Running fine then now wont start, fuel pump or will the fuel relay module cause the car to get no gas


More likely the fuel pump.........check for power to the pump on the gray wire at the fuel pump connector at the tank.(wires from the tank)You should see a prime cycle voltage as you turn the key on...if the key has been off 15 seconds. If you see a test light, light.......change the fuel pump.
Tip....a lot of relays are the same in the relay center....switch the fuel pump relay for one of the (same) others to test it if needed.

Before you do this....sit in the car and turn on the key to run.....not start.......do you hear the pump do it's prime cycle?
Total silence means.......in 99% of cases...a new fuel pump is needed.
If you hear it.......no pump should be needed....look elsewhere first.
