check for power and ground at the pump. if your missing power trace it back and/or check relays and fuses. if the ground is bad run a new one.

if it is a power issue let me know and i'll help you out with some more specific info.

How can you tell if the fuel pump is bad


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. The easiest way to tell if it is kicking on is my listening for the sound of the pump. When you first turn the key, you should hear a humming sound for a second or two. This is your fuel pump kicking on. If you don't hear it, it is not kicking on. If so, check your fuel pump fuse, relay, or reset button if you have one. It is possible that the pump works but is just not getting power. You would have to test it from the pump with a voltage meter to know for sure. If you don't hear it kicking on though, it may be bad. If you have cranked it a lot, it might not turn on because the pump is already primed, so let it rest before you try it again.

No power to the fuel pump


Once you check the fuel inertia switch in the passenger's side kick panel, next is to check the fuel pump fuse, engine compartment fuse # 10.

If this checks OK ( power on both sides ), you can pull the fuel pump relay, and jumper it.

The engine compartment fuse panel is where the fuel pump relay is located at ( relay # 301 ). Pull the fuse pump relay out of the socket, and using the diagram below, with the red line, momentarily jumper the Normally open contacts, you shoud hear the fuel pump run. ( mind the pin orientation when doing this ) :

I had a bad fuel pump relay on my 2001 F-150 @ ~ 36K miles. Replaced with the trailer tow battery charge relay ( relay #302 next to it ) and it worked again.
The symptom I had was a crank no start ( theft light on dash went out ).

If the fuel pump does not run, and power is on pin #30 in the relay socket, next is to check the output of the fuel inertia switch in the passenger side kick panel. The output of this is the Pink w/ Black stripe wire. The connector to the fuel pump inertia switch should be a 2 pin connector, the other color in the connector is Dark green w/ Yellow stripe wire ( that is from the pin #87 in the relay socket in the engine compartment ).

If that circuit has power at the passenger side kick panel, next is to check for power at the fuel pump at the fuel tank. The fuel pump motor is the same Pink w/ Black stripe wire. The connector is a 4 pin connector with black ( ground for the fuel pump ) black w/ orange stripe ( ground for the fuel level ) and yellow w/ white stripe ( to the instrument cluster for the fuel gauge ).
When testing by the fuel tank, make sure you have a good ground for the meter ( extension from neg on the battery or trailer tow adapter ) as that could also be a problem under the truck.

Sorry for war and peace, hope it helps.

2006 crown vic; the fuel pump, will not kick. changed fuel pump, all fuses and relays. i can ground the pump and make it run all the time. but it will not kick on and off.


From your description, sounds like your pump wants an external pressure regulator - and that the pump is designed to be "always on'. Follow the ground lead back to its source - I suspect that you will find a bad connection (rust or broken). You can test it with an ohm meter (between the ground lead and the car chassis. Wth the key ON, the meter should show a very low resistance to ground. Wth the key off, a very high resistance (or open) to ground.
