The fuel pump is suppose to be buried in the middle of all the float assembly. You will need to pull it all out of the tank. You will need to disassemble the float mechanism to remove the metal cylinder in the middle which is your fuel pump. Here's a pic of what you are looking for. In some models it is located about a foot further back in the tank. According to the MFG these have been like this since 1990. Look for the item in the attached photo and you have found your fuel pump. To check the fuse and relay for this fuel pump. Try checking the fuse/relay box under the hood of this vehicle. Look at the UNDERSIDE of the relay box COVER. Toyota calls this relay a "C/OPN" relay
You should hear the pump in the gas tank turn on for 2 seconds when you turn the key to on, not start. A buzz or hum from the tank area? If yes, the pump is supposed to put enough pressure in the line to the engine and the injectors for the car to start. Maybe not enough pressure if it won't start. Change the fuel filter and try again. If no help, maybe a weak, tired pump. You will need the fuel pressure checked to compare to specs for your model . Autozone and others rent or loan fuel pressure testers.
If no noise from the pump, check the fuel pump fuse, under the hood in the power distribution center or fuse/relay box. In that same place is the fuel pump relay. Locate the pump relay from a diagram on the fuse/relay cover. Hold your finger lightly on this pump relay while someone cycles the ignition key from off to on. If the pump circuit is working right, you should feel the relay click. That should send power to the fuel pump to turn it on for that 2 second period. If you feel it click and the fuse is good, possibly the pump or the pump's ground wire is faulty. If you don't feel the relay click with key turned to on, the fuel pump circuit will have to be diagnosed. Good luck with your project. Let me know how you progress.
the fuel pump has 2 fuses 1 in the engine compartment fuse box and 1 in the fuse box inside dash. Also the fuel pump relay is located in the glove box on the passenger side their is 3 relays in there. If you put your hand on the relays and turn the key to the on position you should feel it click and then you will know which one it is. If you do not feel it then this is likely your problem but check the 2 fuses first.
The fuel-pump relay unit is responsible for turning the fuel pump on when it detects the engine is running. When the ignition signal stops, the fuel-pump relay switches the pump off. Problems with the ignition and starting the vehicle often can be traced to the condition of the fuel-pump relay.
The fuel-pump relay is a small unit, typically enclosed in a plastic case. The unit contains several sprockets on one side that are clipped onto the ignition system. The fuel-pump relay is engaged only during the start cycle. If it is faulty, it can take longer to start your vehicle.
Most fuel-pump relay units are located under the dashboard near the steering column. In some cases, the unit is located in the area where the steering column is mounted or near the engine's firewall. The end of the fuel pump relay is typically located near the center of the floorboard, under the carpet in the front section of the passenger's or driver's side footwell.
In addition to difficulty in starting the vehicle, symptoms of a poorly functioning fuel-pump relay include the following: the car dies then starts a few minutes later; the fuel pump makes a strange noise (humming or clicking loudly) for longer than five to 10 seconds after starting; or the engine won't start after you have engaged the fuel-pump switch.
When your car does not start properly, you can conduct a fuel-injection relay test. Two relays are located inside the fuel-injection system; one of them is responsible for turning the ignition on without turning over the engine, and the other is responsible for turning on when the engine turns.
You can check to see if the first relay is working by touching it while turning the ignition on and off. You should feel a "click" every time you switch the ignition. If the fuel-pump relay is not working, you can "jump" the unit with a small lead jumper cable. You will need to access the fuse panel and insert the cable into the relay unit; the unit will run as long as the wire is inside the relay and can help start your car.
Fuel pump relay probably.There is also a relay which affects the injector output also controlled by the fuel pump relay which is called an auto shut down relay.Try the fuel pump relay first.Then the auto shut down relay.If not either of those,you may need a fuel pump but doesn't seem likely on a 5 year old truck but stranger things have happened.Good luck,Greg A dealer will likely tell you exactly where they are as I do not know parts locations for every car.Most systems,yes,parts locations,no.Happy (inexpensive) Holiday
It sounds like your fuel pump or pump relay died. Have a listen below the driver side passenger door in front of the rear wheel while someone turns the key to the "ON" position. You should hear a muffled whirring noise. If not, then the relay or pump has died.
The relay is located in the engine compartment in a black box in front of the power brake booster. The exact location is posted in your owners manual. Autozone or checker sells them for about $7, That should be your first step before dropping $150 on a pump that you might not need. Besides, replacing the pump requires removing the fuel tank to access the pump , and if the shop says the pump is not getting power, then most likely, it is the relay OR the mini fuse for the relay (Not the fuse on the dash panel)
hi, when you turn the ignition on do you hear the fuel pump start up if you do then the pump is fine if how ever you hear nothing then the chances are its going to either be the fuel pump or fuel pump relay, if you have a look in your fuse box you should be able to find the fuel pump relay if you cant locate it then its best you get a manual to show you the relays location, you can then put a finger on the relay and when you turn the ignition on you should feel a little click coming from the relay if you hear this then the pump needs replacing but if you hear or feel nothing then the chances are the relay needs replacing.
you can also check if the pump is working by removing the fuel feed hose from the injector fuel rail then once this is removed you put a tub under it then turn the ignition on if you have fuel shooting out then you know the fuel pump and relay are ok and you need to start thinking of some other problem such as ecu etc,
see what you find then get back to me and ill try and assist you further ok
