Question about 1989 Ford F 150

1 Answer

1989 f150 300 inline 6

Both fuel pumps are new and working, eec & fuel relay have been replaced with bosch relays. I have excellent fuel pressure at pressure valve. Rotate my distributor and pumps kick on. Noid tested my injectors and all is opperating well. The only way i can get this truck to run is to prime the intake. Is it possiable that the computr is not operating properly and sending proper signal to injectors. This has the inline 300 straight 6.

Find another relay with an identical part number(maybe the fuel pump relay)& swap it in place of the suspect EEC relay.See if the buzzing quits.If it does,the EEC relay is bad.There might be a ac WOT cutout relay or fan relay with an identical part number that you can use instead of the fuel pump relay.The fuel pump relay & EEC relay will both have to be in place in order for the engine to start.A relay should click when you turn the key on,but it shouldn't make a buzzing noise.BTW-the EEC relay is energized when you turn the key on and then it supplies ignition on power to the computer,injectors,solenoids and fuel pump relay.Therefore, if the EEC relay is defective, these components are Not going to work.If you don't hear the fuel pump prime when the key is first turned on,that's a sign the EEC relay is bad.One of the injector wires should have battery voltage, if the EEC relay is powering up.If your vehicle doesn't have a matching relay to the EEC relay(except for the fuel pump relay)just pull the FP relay out and slide it into place of the suspect EEC relay for testing purposes.If the buzzing noise stops,then replace the relay because there's no way to test if the car will start without having both relays in place.

There are 2 relays in the relay box that could cause this problem the EEC relay and the FUEL pump relay the best test for EEC relay back probe the throttle position sensor for the 5 volts reference signal run engine and watch to see if you lose this voltage. and fuel pump relay install a fuel pressure gauge to fuel rail service port and check to see if pressure drops to zero.

My 89 ford ranger will some times stall and not start back.You can turn key but fuel pump doesn't start but next day it may run fine


I would suspect a bad eec relay. These used to go out commonly, and the eec relay is what powers up the fuel pump relay.

I replace the fuel pump in my 1990 full size bronco and now I cannot get it to crank. The reset button is depress, the filter is new, and new feul is in the tank. Pleas let me know what else I need to...


Your ford should have a schrader valve in the fuel rail for testing fuel pressure. You shouldn't need to remove a fuel line. On the left inner fender there are two, maybe three relays, usually encased insome type of enclosure. The relay with the green plug is the fuel pump relay, the relay with the brown plug is the EEC relay. Unplug both of these relays and inspect for corrosion, broken pins, and corrosion. A problem with either relay will cause the fuel pump not to run as the EEC relay controls the fuel pump relay. Corrosion at these connections has been very common at my shop.

1989 ciera orange wire going to the oil pressure switch was accidently grounded. Will turn over backfire but not start . Fuel pump won't power up. No power to fuel pump relay. Took relay apart manually...


You didn't post an engine size but you are correct in thinking there is a fusible link that blew when you grounded the orange wire but there is also an inline fuse that protects the oil pressure switch and the fuel pump relay. It is usually located on the firewall.

You can check the fusible links near the starter for continuity. If one of them is burnt up start there by replacing it. If none of them are bad you will need to find the inline fuse. At least the 3.3 liter engine is set up this way.

I don't have control voltage to relay. Fuse not blown. Is the PCM possibly bad. I can jump the Normally open contact and i will get fuel pressure and can even start the van with no problem. Ineria...


There are 2 relays that run your fuel system. The first relay is the EEC relay(electronic engine control) and closes the fuel pump relay, so the fuel pump will work. It sounds like all other controls are working when you close the relay manually. I would replace the EEC relay, and this should repair you concern. Craig
