Fuel problem


I don't know these cars specifically, but is there a little tab in the trunk that says pull to reset? It is to shut down the fuel pump on a rear end collision.

How to fix the horn


If you're getting voltage to horns then it's probably the horn switch or the relay itself. If you can find relay you can test that or replace it. Don't know how to fix the switch but this will narrow it down.

90 f150 fuel pump wont come on check relays and reset not getting pwer to the pump


There could be a few different reasons for power loss. Due to the age of the vehicle I really do not have many pictures for you but will do my best to explain what I would look for but there are a number of "checks" to do in order to narrow down the power loss. At the conector at the fuel cut off switch is there power at the brown wire ? While trying to start there should be power at all times. If the key is turned just to the "on" position you should have power there for a few seconds until the fuel pump relay clicks back off. Do you physically feel the fuel pump relay engauge when turning the key on or trying to start ? There is the EEC relay right next to the fuel pump relay, Is that one clicking that you can physically feel when touching it with your finger while someone is turning the key ? Below is a picture (basically) of your fuel pump relay and its terminals. Where the red arrow is there should be power at all times. Is there ? Also at the same place on the EEC relay there should be power at all times as well. If you are not geting power to the brown wire at the cut off switch and you do not have constant power at that terminal at the fuel pump relay or EEC relay there is a 20 guage fuse link going to those that terminal at the relays. Again I do not have pictures but can tell you it will be a yellow wire coming from the terminal I am pointing out with the red arrow. You can follow that yellow wire from either relay to the fusible link I am talking about. The fuse link should be blue in color. If you have power before the fuse link but no power after the fuse link then that fuse link is bad. There are separate fuse links for both relays but they are the same color and the wire you want to follow from either relay will both be yellow in color. The last thing you may want to check is the ground wire at the fuel pump (the black one) If not geting a good ground check the connectors and splices and you can also clean the ground location for the fuel pump. The main ground for the fuel pump is on the left hand side of the radiator support. Hoping you understood all that. I've been working on Fords for more years then I want to so I just happen to know these things and the software I have for my shop as I said doesn't really give great pictures. Just the basics on older vehicles. If you have any questions or you want to let me know what you found or didn't find, feel free to replt/comment here or you can email me directly at csautomotivecars@att.net and we can take it to the next step once the first "checks" are done in order to repair the problem. Hope this helps.

Has anyone checked the function of the relay? The relay is on the passenger side under the hood near the black cross member. You will want to check the grey wire at the pump to verify voltage and the black for ground. If the relay is not functioning, it may a pump driver failure in the vehicles ECU. check those areas and if you need more or a wiring diagram please let me know.
