    when i bought the pcm they had it programed ( all downloads etc ) for the car. i just had to give them my information on milage and vin# etc... all i had to do was put it in and plug it in. .
    also i had just put in a new fuel filter and bought new relays.
    this car is costing me more money than it is worth...
    i checked all the fuses and wiring is good.
    any other ideas??

That pcm needs reprograming, you just cant buy one and put it in, the new computer needs to be programed or the car wont run, it might start but it will die out,have the pcm programed and if that was your problem the car should run. hope this helps.

My 2003 pontiac vibe wont start it was running great the chk engine lite came on steady still ran great then one day turned off wont start again

Turn on switch and listen for the "buzz" from the fuel pump, if it has a good pump it should turn on for 3 seconds when key is on without cranking the motor. If engine turns faster than normal, likely a timing belt. These are my first checks for no start conditions.

I have a 1998 cadillac catera that we have had constant trouble with. We replaced idle air control valve fuel filter fuel pump and fuel pump relay. It ran for about 3 days after replacing fuel pump then...

Does it have spark ? engine compression ? Stuck open egr valve ?

Any codes stored in the PCM ? Is thier a security light lit on the insturment cluster . When you turn the key on , not start ,listen at the fuel filler neck with the gas cap removed > The PCM will energize the fuel pump for two seconds to prim the system . Can you hear the pump run . Turn it on an off a couple of times to make sure ! The best way would be to hook up a fuel pressure gauge . It sounds to me like your too fix on the fuel pump . When cranking the engine ,if the PCM doesn't see a input from the crankshaft position sensor it won't energize the fuel pump relay . If you want to fix your vehicle i suggest you learn how , an don't guess an just replace parts .

Not guessing as to what the problem is , testing for voltage drop problems with a volt meter . posted a video on youtube yesterday . If your still looking for guesses forget it , no one on here could say for sure without testing the circuit an hooking up a scan tool to see if PCM is energizing the relay . Do yourself a favor an take it to a qualified repair shop . Fuel Pump Electrical Circuits Description and Operation If you can't learn how to test from this guy , better take to a repair shop .

Replaced fuel pump and fuel filter and relays and the 03 lincoln navigator is still not starting? i have reset the reset button but still not getting power to the fuel pump, please help

Your pump is controlled by the PCM. Recommend you interrogate the relay socket to see if the PCM is trying to turn it on. You could also jump the relay there to see if the truck will start. If you want to jump the relay socket, be careful not to put 12 volts into the PCM. You want to jump the hot terminal to the load terminal, which should have a much lower resistance than the PCM. Please see my tip at . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me.

My 2001 blazer 4wd does not want to start. could it be the fuel relay switch? It has a new starter,fuel pump,oc2, spark plugs and fuel injectors, ...problem is i turn the key and i hear the engine trying...

The first thing I do is spray ether in mass air flow manifold and see if it starts. If it starts with ether I know I have a fuel delivery problem. The PCM providing less than 12 volts to the fuel pump results in low discharge pressure. You could also have a bad pressure regulator or a clogged fuel filter.

Car Wont start

check your fuel pump. have some lay on the ground by the fuel tank. Turn the key on but dont try to start. There will be a 1-2 sec. hum from the fuel tank. If nothing is heard then the pump is bad. the only way to change the pump isto remove the gas tank.
