The problem may actually be in the fuel pump relay itself. The windings of the relay which create an electromagnetic field when energized, may be shorted and/or creating a high current draw, thus blowing the fuel pump fuse repeatedly.

I hope this helps! :)

90 lesabre limited Fuel pump fuse blows every time I start the car It's a 20a fuse, I'm not even sure if it's a final pump fuse I can't find any diagrams showing what is what. Right side of dash


20 AMP is a big fuse, I would say its the fuse to the motor check this web site http://www.beijing-fanyi.com/1990/1990-buick-lesabre-wiring-diagrams

I have a 1994 Chrysler labaron i have replaced the fuel pump & filter & the relay but it still blows the fuse


Sounds like a short somewhere in the circuit. If you are able check all wiring coming from the fuel pump for any chafed wires or loose connections check connectors and harnesses for corrosion or loose connection which can cause resistance. also check for any signs of melted or burnt wires or connectors. hope this helps some.

1993 Buick Roadmaster keeps on blowing fuel pump/ecm in-line 20 amp fuse. Car stalled out in a parking lot, would not start, no fuel. Changed fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pump relay. Found fuel pump/ecm...


Sorry to say it could also be a faulty ECM. The ecm uses circuit boards to provide grounds to a bunch of components and can short out internally.
Most of those components can fail and cause the same problem by causing a short "thru" the ECM. Things like injectors, O2 sensors, and so on.
I doubt you will find the problem without a book and some test equipment.

Keeps blowing fuel pump fuse. Why?


This normally happens due to short in the wirings.Or if someone has connected a stereo or some other electrical contrivance to the wiring harness (bundle), either under the dash or under the hood.To confirm this unplug the fuel pump wiring connections and insert new fuse.Then start the car and see,if still the fuse blows then its a short in wiring.But if the fuse does not blows then its faulty fuel pump relay or faulty fuel pump itself.So first replace the fuel pump relay and see,if the fuel still blows then its faulty fuel pump.But if the fuse not blowing then relay was the faulty part.The fuel pump relay located on the fuse box under the hood.---------This troubleshooting tips will help you locate the fault and solve it.-------Thanks.Helpmech.

Will not start and checked fuel pump no power to fuel pump i also have blown fuse for ecmb that blows as soon as i replace it


ECM B fuse supplies a constant 12v hot at all times to the VCM/PCM and to the fuel pump relay. The fuse is blowing telling you that there is a short to ground somewhere. Try this, take the fuel pump relay out and put a new fuse in. If it doesn't blow put the relay back in and if it blows then try a new relay. The relay may be shorted to ground internaly. Other wise you'll have to trace the wires to the VCM and the pump relay to look for a chafed wire that's contacting metal. The wire coming from the ECM B fuse is orange and has a splice in it going to the pump relay and the VCM/PCM.
Hope this helps.....Andrew

EEC relay fuse keeps blowing id put a new fuse in the truck it would run for about 10 seconds then blow the fuse again.


There are 3 relays mounted below the fuse box .
The green I believe is fuel pump relay and the brown is EEC. The third relay is for the A/C WOT.
It is possible the wiring is shorted, check there, it is also possible you have a bad fuel pump.
Please let me know what you find.

2008 Ford F450 fuel pump relay fuse keeps blowing.


the fuel pump and radio are not on the same circuit, most liokely the fuel pump is shorted, that is the most common cause, get under the truck and disconnect the fuel pump connector at the tank, if the fuse doesn't blow then u need a new pump.

Birning the fesue for the fuel pump


You could have a short in the wire harness to the fuel pump or the fuel pump it self is bad or the relay has gone bad also. Start with the replacement of the fuel pump relay and also find the wire harness to the fuel pump sending unit from the frame to the gas tank and disconnect the connections. If the fuse does not blow when the connection to the fuel pump is disconnected, then it's a go chance that it's the fuel pump. If the fuse blows and the wire harness is disconnected, then the problem is towards the fuel pump relay and fuse block. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 100% again.
