Fuel pump not working

I inhereted a 86 XJ6 Jaguar with some electrical problems. The fuel pump is not charging the system to run the engine. Most other electrical systems seem to work. Is it the fuel pump relay, the ECC, or something else?

I would check the connection at the Fuel Pump to ensure a good connection, I have seen this to be a problem on several of these cars. Also on the passenger side inner fender area there is a cut of switch on a lot of these models it looks like a knob you can turn one way or the other.

Good Luck I hope this works for you.

The car was running fine we drove it to the store no Problem with the Jaguar 1989 XJ6 the car was running fine we drove it to the grocery store and came out it would not start put gas in it and it...

Sounds like fuel pump is bad. Running fuel low puts alot of strain on electric fuel pumps. The fuel acts as a coolant for the pump, that's why it's advisable to keep at least 1/2 tank. It sounds like your pump finally just gave up. Pump might be making noise but it could just be spinning and not pumping. Have someone test your fuel pressure to confirm.

Fuel pump is bad or plugged fuel filter it seems. Crack the line from the filter leading towards the engine first. If gas starts squirting out fast, you have good pressue. If not the filter is plugged or a bad pump. How old is the fuel filter by chance? If original its plugged up by now
