No power to fuel pump relay


There is an emergency fuel pump safety shutoff in case of an accident that will automatically shut fuel pump off so fuel does not keep pumping out at the scene of a crash. The reset button is usually in the trunk depending on what vehicle you have. Your manual will identify location for you.

I need help figuring out what's causing the problem on my car it wont start i'm wondering if it's the ignition i was told this was a common problem on these cars?


Listen for the electric fuel pump to make a werrring sound with the key in the run position,dont turn the key to start you cant hear the noise. It must be very quiet near the car to hear the fuel pump sound. The pump is in the gas tank and should have a access metal plate located in the back of you trunk. Take out things in your trunk to allow someone to put their ear next to this plate so they can hear if the pump comes on or not. It should run for a couple of seconds each time you turn the key to the start position.The pump seems to last about 80000 miles. Also, if you dont hear the pump checks its fuse.
