Have you checked the INERTIA SWITCH. its a little back box, just in front of the passengers feet, there is a red button on the top of it. It its UP you need to press it down. Sometimes it will trip off just by hitting a hard bump or even slamming the door. I dont know why you would replace the fuel pump if its not getting power?

1988Ford F150 Econoline Van5.0fuel system problems


Not sure I am following your story, but here goes.
The fuel pump relay gets power from a fuseable link at the starter solenoid and from the EEC relay. When the fuel pump is grounded by the computer it sends power to the inertia switch then to the pumps and controls.
If you are not getting main power to the relay the fuseable link (yellow wire) is fried. If the pump relay is not engaging, the EEC relay could be toast (red wire). If you are getting power out of the relay but not to the pumps, the inertia switch may be tripped.

2002 saturn L100 no power to fuel pump fuse and relay good?


Well the relay gets power from the pump fuse located in the fuse box under the hood. It looks like the fuse gets power from the battery.
Are any other circuits dead with the key on ? Do you see any fuseable links around the battery that might have failed ?

Tries to start,won't run


Have you checked that the fuel pump is "humming" in the fuel tank when the ignition is in the "on" position? If it's not,the easiest thing to check, which 99.9% of people don't know about Trackers is a fuseable link located behind your rear tail light (driver's side). If you remove the tail light find the PINK wire (on CDN ones anyway, you can check the top of the fuel tank to see what color it is) where it connects to the fuseable link, this is your power wire, if the link looks melted you won't get power to the fuel pump. Check this before you buy any parts, if it's melted cut the wire on both sides of the link and add a new piece of wire (3-4") and connect the two ends and seal it with silicone or at least electrical tape, it should start now.

I turn the ignition switchand the fuel pumps do not pump up. i checked the ems, relays, enertia switch, fuses. and fuseable links. i can ground pumps at terminal and the pumps will work. there is spark....


Pour some gas down the intake manifold and see if it starts to verify this problem. If it starts you may have a bad fuel pump or possibly a bad ground for the body check all your body grounds. But if you're able to ground out the fuel pump and you hear it run you may have a clogged fuel filter. If you can keep the fuel pump running see if it will start if it starts you may have a wiring problem. Remember that computer controls both the positive in the ground going to the fuel pump. Good luck.

The age 1986 warrants a fuel pump replacement. Check for rodent damage in the fuel tank harness area when you install new pump. Also change the fuel filter.

94 z wont start


You will have to check, at the starter, for power to the SMALL wire on the starter solenoid (which is on the starter) when turning the ignition switch to start.
If there is power to this wire ( usually purple ) and power at the LARGE cable ( from the battery ) at the starter end.....you need a starter.

If you do not have power at the small wire at the solenoid with the key in start position and battery power is OK.....check the safety neutral switch.Moving the shifter around a little can sometimes allow the car to start if the neutral switch is worn.

A new battery does not always mean a fully charged battery.
Try a boost from another car before testing the starter for power.

The battery cables need to be clean and tight....and check the ground to the engine as well.

Everything else may work OK with bad connections,they don't use the power the starter needs to turn the engine over.

My corvette doesnt want to start because theres no power going to the fuel pump fuse.


I am looking at alldata , the schematics for the fuel system. I see a fuse in the fuse block(10 amp) that comes from the fuel pump relay to the pump. I see a fuseable link (link H)that goes through a oil pressure sending unit. I would get a test light and test the oil pressure sending unit, the inline fuseable link and the relay. If still no power check the connection at the pump and then work backwards testing the harness.

My 1994 suburban engine stops. No fuel, no MIL light.


I checked all of the fuseable links and they were all good. Next I decided to check all the power wires to the ECM and also the grounds from a wiring diagram because the Mil is controlled by the ecm and the bulb was good. The ecm is located behind the glove box. Bingo, the orange wire was only reading 3-5 volts at the ECM, but 12.5 volts after the fuseable link at the underhood fuse block (passenger side firewall). I ran a temp wire directly from after the fuseable link to the orange wire at the ecm and the ecm turned back on and the Mil or "check engine soon" light came on too. The truck started up and has never run smoother.

Note that at first the truck just stalled out and I could restart it right away with no error codes. Eventually the stalling became more frequent with longer reset times required. Once it threw a "code 54" and I thought it was fuel related as each time the gas stopped and I could still start the truck with gas poured into the TB. Ignition ok. My fuel pump turned on and ran if I tested it. I even checked the pressure regulator and the fuel filter to no avail.The orange wire that powers up the ecm is technically part or the fuel pump relay circuit as it also feeds the fuel pump relay 12.5 volts all the time. The thin orange wire from the fuse block is joined to two other thin orange wires in the large group of wires that heads to the ecm along the firewall behind the engine. I had to dig it out of the many wires to find it and remove a lot of tape. It is amazing to me that this one little orange wire could cause so much grief and be so hard to track down. I could not have afforded to take this problem to the Dealer.
