Question about 1999 Ford Windstar

Fuel pump will not work

I replaced fuel pump and fuses! At first, it kept blowing fuses. Now I'm not getting any power at all to plug junction, but when I connect the fuel pump directly to battery, it works fine. Even the old pump works fine when I connect it to the battery. I've checked all fuses and relays. Nothing is blown as far as I can tell. Is there another fuse or relay other than under the dash and under the hood? Is it electrical? I don't know anything else to try other than bypassing the junction hot wire altogether. Can anyone help me!

    Yes but how many have something to do with the fuel pump?

  • waunb Jun 27, 2009

    Thanks a lot. It hasn't been wrecked. I've had this van for about 3 years and have never wrecked or had any issues like this. I guess I will put it in the shop and let them figure it out!

    I found the fuel pump reset button. It was located in the back inside the panel that holds the jack. It was not tripped so it didn't solve the problem. Someone else may be looking for it. That's where it is! My fuel gauge works now,but still no power to fuel pump! I am baffled!

    well if you have multi tester your going to have to follow the trail right from the ignition to the pump,, would be good to print out a wiring diagram, saves alot of time.

If I understand your post correctly you have a fuse for the fuel pump that is blown or blowing. Until you resolve that issue the fuel pump probably will not get enough power to run. If it blows when you replace it the you have a wiring problem to your fuel pump. Most replacement gm fuel pumps come with a replacement plug for the fuel pump. Make sure you use it if yours did as there have been lots of problems with the wiring plug being damaged due to the high current draw of the fuel pump.

No power to fuel pump or pump fuse on a 1996 saturn sl1. whats up?


The fuel pump fuse gets its power from the fuel pump relay, which is located in the Instrument Panel Junction Block.

The fuel pump relay gets its ground from G102, which is located just forward of the left strut tower.

The fuel pump relay gets its power from the Powertrain Control Module Connector "C" Pin 10 ( DARK GREEN/ WHITE wire) for the primary side of the relay.

The sencondary side (the side that provides power to the fuel pump fuse) of the fuel pump relay gets its power from the IP BATT Fuse (30 Amp) HOT AT ALL TIMES in the underhood fuse block.

This should be enough information to figure out why your fuel pump is not getting power. Let me know what you find.

No voltage to fuel pump


A fuse will blow for 2 reasons . 1) If the device has a Short in the circuit that runs through this fuse. 2) If the device draws more amperage from the power source through the fuse than the fuse will handle. ex. if a fuel pump or starter has a 20 amp fuse and the starter/fuel pump is going bad and draws 30 amps it will blow the fuse. A fuel pump on a 1996 vehicle is located in the fuel tank and is kept cool by the surrounding gas and the gas that flows through it. Overheating a fuel pump is virtually impossible. That being said there is a High probability that replacing the fuel pump and relay will fix this problem. It is quite common for this to occur in the GM vehicle of 1996. When the pump starts to fail, it draws an excessive amount of amperage and would blow the fuse. Hope you find this information useful.
