There is a fuel pump relay on your car. They are usually found in the underhood relay center, though in some cases, they can be under the dash. There is also a fuse for the fuel pump, seperate from the relay.

Why want my 93 ford ranger pick up start without pouring gas into the intake fuel pump want come on unless hot wired straight to batt


There is a fuel shut off switch (inertia fuel shut off-opens on impact) in the wiring between the fuel pump relay (in the under-hood fuse/relay box) and the gas tank. It may have opened. I don't know where it is located, it may be behind a kick panel under the dash. You may have to ask someone where it is.

The fuel pump fuse is a 20amp fuse, also in the engine compartment fuse/relay box. This fuse and it's wire is the power feed for the fuel pump relay.

I have a 83 280zx non-turbo which quit running. Heard pulsating noise at fuel pump relay (kicking in and out) under dash passenger side. Replaced relay, still does same thing. Replaced water temperature...


You need to replace the fuel filter. Also the age of the car warrants replacing the fuel pump too. If its drawing high amps the relay will fail. Straight wiring a fuel pump is a safety concern. A fire or explosion hazard exist due to arcing at fuel pump motor. Yes it is inside the fuel tank and is very old. Replace it.

The truck was dying sometimes. We changed the fuel pump out and now the new pump will not kick on. We spliced the wires and installed the new connector just like the paperwork showed, but it will not kick...


i dont believe there is a fuel cutoff switch on that yr but you might want to check the pump take it out and wire it straight to the battery for a few seconds if it doesnt kick on and stay on then return the fuel pump... if it kicks on and stays on then you might want to consider a new sending unit as well as the pump it doesnt cost that much more and then you wont have that worry later down the road

well...assuming you are talking about the fuel pump being rewired then you possible suspects are...
1.) fuel pump relay
2.) computer

Where is my eec computer located on my 1991 f150 300 straight 6 my fuel pump wont shut off with keys in my pocket. i already replace the ignition switch and fuel pump rely. any suggetions on what it could...


It is in the front seating area, driver side, behind dash, upper corner, mounted on dash with support brackets. I don't think the computer would fix your problem. Does the fuel pump quit running when you remove the relay? It sounds more like a wiring problem, like a wire that should be getting ignition battery, (going to the fuel pump), is getting constant battery. I would check the wiring for the fuel pump relay.

check your wiring from relay to fuel pump commector. possible cause is 2wires rubbing together causing the relay to kick in and out. if your wiring checks out ok then the problem will be in the fuel pump trying to short out. use ohm meter and test light to check wiring and pump.

1984 RABBIT GTI FUEL PUMP KICKS ON AND OFF


You had a missing relay before? To operate the pump you'd jump the perpendicular connections. As for the relay running briefly, that sounds like it could be a worn out ignition switch.

Starts up and dies


Let me explain real quick the fuel pump circuit, when you crank to start that is a straight circuit to the pump via a fuse in most cases, when the engine starts and you release the key the fuel pump relay is energized and keeps the fuel pump running, it sounds like the fuel pump run relay may be the problem with your car, replace it or bypass it to test, if you don't understand how a bosch relay is wired don't jump it yourself, you can burn up the wiring.
