Question about 1989 Ford Econoline
Replaced the alternator, new battery but when we tried to start the van it wouldn't get fuel to the engine. Fuel pump is working, replaced fuel filter...was suggested to check the fuel relay/switch. Can't find it.
Did it run fine prior to replacing the alt and battery? Check over where you have been working,sometimes things get bumped/disconnected. Fuel pump shut-off switch is in one of the kick panels near the inside of the doors. Reach up over the top of the kick panel. The pump relay are near the battery. What happens on this model too,is the heater leaks on the computer,which is under the heater core.The coolant/water shorts it out.

install a fuel pump guage and check pressure at key on and start, it should hardly vary, it the pressure is constant check the injector signal with a noid light, while you are at it check spark(no spark no injector signal) you won't find a relay fuse
