Question about Ford Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

2000 Ford E350 Econoline. Are you saying that the only way to get current to the fuel pump is by cranking the engine??? Checked all relays and even tried to hot wire the fuel pump with no success.

I disconnected the automatic shut off switch to check for current and there was none found there either. I'm totally confused. I've donated this van to an after school program and need it to run in tip top shape. PLEASE HELP!!!!

Then it won't energize till you crank the engine over . Provided the PCM see's a signal from the crank sensor . Fuel Pump Electrical Circuits Description and Operation

Fuel pressure

Well most engines have a mechanical pump on the engine, but the E350 models used for motor homes and box vans also use an electric pump in the tank. The pressure rating is still 5-8 psi like the mechanical pumps.
Have you replaced the inline filter ?

Inertia switch is located Under right side of dash, on heater plenum. Do you hear the fuel pump turn on when turning ignition on? you can hear pump by opening fuel door and put ear against while having someone turn ignition on, another test would be to install a fuel pressure gauge on scradder valve and reading fuel pressure - recommended

My 2000 ford focus cranks, but does not start. I

You will want to find out if you are not getting spark or not getting fuel.
If no fuel, then bad fuel pump, plugged fuel filter, or bad fuel pressure regulator, or bad fuel pump relay.

If no spark, then bad crank sensor, or ignition module, or coil packs.
