SOURCE: Fuel Pump Relay Switch

Underneath your hood, behind the passenger side headlight, behind the core support, is a bank of 2-8 relays. One of those relays is the relay needed for your fuel pump. There will also be a fuel pump relay fuse located there. The relay designation should be on the cover of the relay compartment.

SOURCE: fuel pump relay switch not working/ fuel pump emergency switch?

If the pump is making sound, then the relay must be ok.
It could still be weak, but you could tell with a pressure gauge.
(Harbor Freight sells a gauge kit cheap.)

But make sure the ignition is working first, by spraying in some starting fluid.
It is even sputters, then you know the ignition is ok.
If not, then check all the fuel injection connections.
The the temperature sensor and mass air sensor.
Use an ohmmeter, and check resistance against the norm.

SOURCE: Car will turn over but won't start. Through the

No noise from fuel pump when you turn over the car .First thing get voltage at fuel pump relay checked, is there 12 volt to the relay.If no, then problem is again the relay.--------- To reconfirm the problem, try other test, that is remove the relay and by pass the relay terminals with a jumper wire .Then with 12 volt external battery give power to fuel pump connector and see, if the fuel pump starts, then its clear that fuel pump relay is faulty.----------- Also other problem can be fuel pump inertia switch.If the inertia switch is faulty then also fuel pump will not start.-------- The fuel pump relay on a 1995 Ford Explorer is in the power distribution
box, in the engine compartment, driver's side near the firewall.----------
The fuel pump inertia switch is in the right front passenger area
it is below the dash but above the carpet in the right hand corner.--------
Its a push button type inertia switch.
--------
Fuel Pump Activation
When ignition switch is turned to START position, PCM operates fuel pump relay to provide fuel for starting engine. PCM senses engine speed and shuts off fuel pump by opening ground circuit to fuel pump relay when engine stops or engine speed drops to less than 120 RPM. When ignition switch is in ON position, EEC power relay is energized (contacts closed). Power is provided to fuel pump relay and timer in PCM. Fuel pump receives power through fuel pump relay contacts.
Inertia Fuel Shutoff (IFS) Switch
All models use an electrical interrupt switch in fuel system. During a collision or vehicle rollover, electrical contacts within inertia switch open, shutting off fuel supply to electric fuel pump. Fuel supply is interrupted even when engine is running.
A reset button is located on switch assembly. If electrical circuit trips, vehicle will not restart until switch is reset. Fuel system should be inspected before resetting switch.
IFS switch is located under instrument panel, near right side of transmission hump.
----------- If the fuel pump relay, the inertia switch and fuel pump all checked ok, and fuel pump is working with direct 12 volt source to fuel pump.Then problem relates to computer.The computer (power control module, PCM) is faulty and has to be replaced.--------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Were can I find the fuel pump kill switch


When you first turn the key to start the vehicle the PCM - engine computer energizes the fuel pump relay turning on the fuel pump for two seconds to prim the system . The fuel pump won't be turned on again till the PCM receives a crankshaft position sensor signal. If you hear it come on the inertia fuel cut off switch is OK . Now then what problem are you having Lisa ? A no start condition ? Is there spark getting to the spark plugs ? Do you have a red light on the dash flashing when trying to start the truck ? Anti-theft system problem .

Fuel safety switch location or other reasons it won't start after crash.


Generally speaking, only Ford products have a safety switch or inertia switch for the fuel system. This includes some Mazda models.
I would start with the basics and check for power to the coil and the fuel pump relay.

2000 Kia Sportage won't start


My guess would be something has happened to the fuel pump in the tank. I would make sure the pump has voltage when cranking the engine to verify.

Why won't my car stay running after it ran out of gas


Most newer cars are very sensitive to being ran low on gas. The fuel pump is in the tank and relies on fuel to cool it down. Your fuel pump is now probably not pumping the required pressure for the fuel injection system to work properly (or at all).

If the engine fires up for a second or two with starting fluid then the fuel pump is weak.I would check the fuel pressure and if its not within the specs then replace the pump and filter.

  • Hi, I can help.

  • The fuel pump relay is 4th over on the very bottom row of the relay panel under the hood. This can be the pump too. The pump holds pressure and when the back pressure switch fails the car won't start. Or the pump could just be out period. The fuel filter can do this too.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

When my car sits for a few days without driving the car will not start, is there like a kill switch or something that causes this?


No kill switch

The Fuel Inertia Switch --- is only on Ford Products
& will not be a problem unless you were in a very heavy hit
Then your car would most likely be totaled

I would think your battery is no good, IF, it is from the factory
& never replaced
Have you not tested it, on the days it won't start?

What does it take to get it started?

Have you checked fuel pressure or had
someone under car listening for the fuel pump ?

The cavalier starts and runs for 7 second sthen dies


Believe the fuel pump power runs thru the oil pressure switch,if the pressure drops too low ,it kills the pump.Thinking the pressure switch may be bad.The pump runs during cranking ,but not while running.

My truck won t start tow guy mentioned of a kill switch in vehicle i also read about in manual almost seems as if no gas is passing


vehicles are equipped with a fuel pump circuit breaker,or 'crash switch' that shuts off fuel pump in case of an 'incident'. consult owners manual for exact location & procedure.usually a button is pressed to reset.
