Replace the fuel pump, it is drawing to much current, this is common when the pump bearings get worn out, also make sure you replace the fuel pump connector at the fuel tank connection, it will be burnt..

Why does the 20amp fuse for the fuel pump keep popping?


rodeo or rodeo SPORT?
2.2 or 3.2 engine> not even a cylinder count....
i wish all problems were this simple. (easy with ammeter)
the load is SHORTEd, the fuse saved the fire.
x2 all above answers
but keep in mind some fuses run more that one thing, ill check.

20amp fuse (no label) no engine option stated, must be the 6ve1, v6 twin cam.
fuel systems vary by (engine type)
not the 3.5L vin Y engines. 2.2 or 3.2L>?
fuse EB12, Engine bay fuse blows, 20a, fuel pump.

so pull these conn.
H-15 first
then if ok, (no blow)
H-25: if not blow now the pump is shorted
or the wire from H25 to F1 is ground to the frame.
wire inspections are first. on that path.
i use a EB12 , circuit breaker and mag ammeter to find this fast.
ask.

Well code 1450 for a Ford product is a problem with the gas tank venting system.
I would think the pump in the tank is blowing the fuse, and it could be from excessive pressure in the tank.

Keeps blowing fuel pump fuse. Why?


This normally happens due to short in the wirings.Or if someone has connected a stereo or some other electrical contrivance to the wiring harness (bundle), either under the dash or under the hood.To confirm this unplug the fuel pump wiring connections and insert new fuse.Then start the car and see,if still the fuse blows then its a short in wiring.But if the fuse does not blows then its faulty fuel pump relay or faulty fuel pump itself.So first replace the fuel pump relay and see,if the fuel still blows then its faulty fuel pump.But if the fuse not blowing then relay was the faulty part.The fuel pump relay located on the fuse box under the hood.---------This troubleshooting tips will help you locate the fault and solve it.-------Thanks.Helpmech.

I have a 99 windstar fuel pump was replaced but it keeps blowing the 15amp fuse under the hood, it wants to start but fuse keeps blowing. any ideas?


If it is blowing the fuel pump fuse, then when replacing the fuel pump one of the wires are pinched. Check the wiring. Even if the fuel pump is bound up or something then it still would not blow the fuse. More than likely the hot wire to the pump is pinched and grounding out.

The twenty amp maxi fuse in the under the hood fuse panel goes to, you guessed it, the fuel pump. It sounds to me like you have a short to ground in the wiring that keeps popping this fuse. Find and fix the short, or you will keep blowing fuses.

Intermittent fuel pump engagement when turning key - 2001 Taurus


try cleaning the connector that goes to the fuel pump, sometimes they corrode on inside. If that does not fix, test the wires feeding fuel pump with a multi meter until the condition shows itself again, if voltage drops to zero or very low then wiring problem, if voltage is unchanged with problem and fuel pump is not working and connectors are all clean, try replacement of fuel pump.
