    Check the fuel pump relay. Swap it with a similar one in the fuse box.

What shuts off fuel system when in wreck

This truck uses a high pressure fuel system, key must be on for the electric fuel pump, which is in the tank, to work. Fuel pump senses when pressure drops, so that it will shut off if there is full pressure, and engine not running. If there is lower pressure, such as a broken line, it will continue to pump, if the engine is running. If you're asking if it has a safety feature shutting it off in an accident, no it does not, except if the engine shuts off due to the accident, fuel pump will not work, unless key is turned off and then back on, and will then work for about 5 seconds and shut off, unless engine is started. If you're asking why the fuel pump doesn't work after an accident, it's most likely damaged, or a wire has been damaged, OR the computer maybe damaged (therefore telling it to turn on/off when key is on and engine running with key on and pressure is low, or at the right level to run the engine. Again, if you turn the key on and do not start the engine, fuel pump will work briefly for about 5 seconds to bring pressure up to where it can be started, then the fuel pump will work again when the engine is started (so the fuel pump isn't running with the engine off for very long.)

1986 nissan d21 v6 3.0 new fuel pump but wont turn on checked the pump relay and replaced it an i have current but wont travel to the fuel pump????? Do i need to rewire the cables to the pump

Yes that is most likely what you will have to do, or find the wires half way to the tank and probe it to see if there is power there, if so then go half way further and so on till you find the area where the problem lies.

Will not start up fuel was low fuel relay /pump

Reset the electronic fuel pump there are instructions on this procedure under the hood on the radiator support. it says if vehicle does not start..... Just follow instructions and it should work.

After a collision, if the engine cranks but does not start, the fuel pump
shut-off switch may have been activated. The "Fuel Reset" indicator light
will illuminate in the instrument cluster. The shut-off switch is a device
intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been
involved in a substantial jolt.
1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
2. Check the fuel system for leaks.
3. If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the fuel pump shut-off switch by
pushing in the reset button.
4. Turn the ignition to the ON position. Pause for a few seconds and
return the key to the OFF position.
5. Make a further check for leaks in the fuel system.
Roadside emergencies
The fuel pump shut-off switch is
located in the passenger's foot well,
behind the kick panel.

if that dosent work try replaceing fuel filter

My 1999 Lincoln Continental has been tuned up, has a new battery, plugs etc. but at times, it will not start. The fuel pump is good. I have had some luck starting it by pressing the reset button for the...

How about the security light on dashboard? It flashes every 2 sec. When u turn the key on it should stay on constanly for 3 sec then go off. If it flashes rapidly, like mine did, then it isnt reading the key. I took some electronic contact cleaner and sprayed it in the ignition whele slidin the key in an out. And it works now. I have to tilt the steerin wheel all the way down also. Not sure why. It took me a while to fig out what was going on with it. I even chngd the pump. It cuts the pwr off to the pump. but there is pwr at safety switch. If it stops wrkn again i will run a wire from it to pump. Better than new sec key and computer. Also when you start it for first time ea day. Turn key on till u hear pump run and stop. Then turn off and on again so it will build up more fuel pressure. Hope this helps. Take neg bat cable off b4 spraying the ignition.

1990 geo storm wont start, no fuel, no stored codes.

can you hear the fuel pump when you turn the ignition key to start position??( you should hear it start then stop after few sec.) If not, this could be the fuel pump fuse,some bad contact in the wiring of the fuel pump or the worst case the computer.but if you do,unplug your main fuel line to the injector turn the switch to start position again to see if you have some fuel coming out.if not this could be the fuel filter or the fuel pressure switch! hope this will help you...lipak!..

I have a 91 s-10 that wont run...fuel pump runs and I am getting fuel to the carb all brand new plugs and wires and ignition coil and module and new cap and rotor? fires up and dies out?

The fuel pump relay is at fault. The engine will start running off the oil pressure sensor for the 3rd wire connected to the sensor feeds power to the fuel pump which makes your truck start right up. When the engine achomplish the standard oil pressure as needed the sensor shuts power off by the PCM default system and turns on the fuel pump relay to continue working the fuel pump. replace the relay and you will be driving around again

Fuel pump wont turn

Well - there is a pressure switch somewhere that shuts off the pump when it reaches the correct pressure. The fuel filter may be clogged so the pump turns off real quick. check the fuel pressure rail test port connection.
