I'm thinking you took it to a point and guess shop.? I think it is this, Nope, Now I think it is this, nope......Well I'm thinking it is a bad fuel module, because of where they locate them. Could just be the plug, corrosion. I'm also thinking you have a bad ground also. I'm also thinking you should find another shop, And demand your money back for a misdiagnosed job, that didn't fix the problem.

    If your not getting a code for the speedometer, then the motor for the speedo is dead. They aren't that hard to replace. But probably have to get a dash from the junk yard. Don't swap panels because your car won't start, just replace the motor. On the p1237, your going to have to take a look at the fuel module. It's in the trunk, but you have to pull the back seat out to access it. You can replace the module if you don't find corrosion. About $50. If you go to the junk yard for the dash, get the module also. Remove yours first, that way you know what tools to take with you.

    The fuel module is on the passenger side.

    200 ford contour svt. The used fuel pump driver module helped but my lights still strobe and my alternator is putting out great!?

  • Randy Ohler May 02, 2015

    Which lights?

  • Ryan Beland
    Ryan Beland May 03, 2015

    All the lights! Every light you could imagine strobes( radio, dash, headlights, interior dome lights but brake lights don't) I replaced the fuel pump driver module cleared codes and nothing Is coming back( speedo started again and caught up to about how far it was behind), but my acceleration is weird like I shift at 3-3500 and it accelerates slow but sounds like I'm racing ( could it be throttle body, vss, injectors, spark plugs)

  • Randy Ohler May 03, 2015

    I don't think it would any of those. Sounds like a ground problem since it's in different areas of the electrical system. Start with the three main ground points. Battery to body, battery to engine and engine to body. Loosen the nut/ bolt and resecure them. If any of those three are missing, add a strap/wire to those points. And with Fords, its always best to add a ground strap from the transmission to the engine.

I had same problem in my 90 deville. Drove myself crazy, I replaced the sending unit in the tank with a new fuel pump. I also had to replace the fuel pressure regulator, which sits behind the rail system. It worked for me.

The error P1130 and P1131 is for the fuel trim and lean fuel mixture respectively. This tells me that this may be an issue with the air fuel mixture or its reached its limits in compensating for the incorrect mixture. You could try to clean out the intake first using carb cleaner spray or tuner spray to clean out the intake and the MAF sensor which measures the air that comes in. Check also if there are leaks or gaps on the air duct found between the air filter and the intake manifold and the intake plenum. Leaks would cause the system to get an incorrect reading. If it were a faulty sensor you should get the error code for the sensor and you may have issues starting the engine up.

Check also the vacuum hoses which may be loose or cracked that needs replacing or refitting. This is also a common cause. I also do not rule out the possibility of the fuel sensors going or starting to go bad. The PCV may also need cleaning or replacing.

With all mentioned items go check first the leaks of the intake system and the vacuum lines as these are found to be common. Some leaks or cracks are minimal but is crucial to the sensors.

I previously posted my 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid had a code P0190 . I bought a scan tool and actually have two codes (P0191 and P1237).

- Fuel Pump Secondary Circuit (Fuel Pump Driver Module)
- Low or no fuel
- High fuel pressure
- Low fuel pressure
- Faulty Rail Pressure (FRP) Sensor
- FRP harness is open or shorted
- FRP circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Fuel Pump
- Vacuum leaks

No Injector Pulse

run fault codes as there is a problem sensor in the system. volts at the injector is suspect as the voltage will vary with the fuel requirement.

P1237 in ford mustang

Hello! The P1237 is more than likely a bad fuel pump..However here are a couple of issues to eliminate first...In the trunk on the drivers side directly behind the taillight is a Red Button...This is the inertia fuel shut off switch...Push down on the Button to be sure it is reset...Try to start the car...If it still does not start...On the fuel rail is a cap much similar to a tire valve stem cover..It's the fuel pressure release...Push in the center and fuel should squirt out...If not the fuel pump is defective and needs to be replaced...

How do I fix code P1237 on ford taurus sel

P1237 - Fuel Pump Secondary Circuit Malfunction

Electronic Returnless Fuel Systems (ERFS) utilize a Fuel Pump Driver Module (FPDM) to control fuel pressure. The PCM uses a Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor (FRP) for feedback. The PCM outputs a duty cycle to the FPDM to maintain the desired fuel rail pressure. During normal operation, the PCM will output a FP duty cycle from 5% to 51%. The FPDM will run the fuel pump at twice this duty cycle, e.g. if the PCM outputs a 42% duty cycle, the FPDM will run the fuel pump at 84%. If the PCM outputs a 75% duty cycle, the FPDM will turn off the fuel pump.

If the FPDM does not out any diagnostic signal, (0 or 100% duty cycle), the PCM sets a P1233 DTC. This DTC is set if the FPDM loses power. This can also occur if the Inertia Fuel Switch is tripped.

If the FPDM outputs a 25% duty cycle, it means that the fuel pump control duty cycle is out of range. This may occurs if the FPDM does not receive a valid control duty cycle signal from the PCM. The FPDM will default to 100% duty cycle on the fuel pump control output. The PCM sets a P1235 DTC.

If the FPDM outputs a 75% duty cycle, it means that the FPDM has detected an open or short on the fuel pump control circuit. The PCM sets a P1237 DTC.

2001 Chevy Impala When i try to speed up it blogs down and wont speed up. What causes this ive changed the fuel filter already

Probably a bad sensor. Maybe a TPS or MAF. Sounds like things are not mixing correctly or firing right. OR the fuel pressure is bad and that's either the pump or bad fuel rail and a fuel return can cause probs also. I'd check the fuel pump 1st, then sensors, then fuel rail

I have a 2006 navigator.fuel pump went so i replaced it with another new fuel pump, this time i got a code p1237.

The 1237 is a fuel pump circuit malfunction. I would hope you got the connector on the pump okey. Check alt ouput at battery terminals and TPS Sensor Data. The fuel pump may not have been bad. Only you would know that,assuming you did a fuel pressure test,volume test,ampere draw test etc.
