SOURCE: Hello asking the same question about my 1989 Ford

OK, guessing you know your truck. Without a pressure switch the pumps would run all the time the ignition is on. do they run ok without pumping? (pull one out of the tank). Do you have a relay that the tank selector switch activates? Most cars run the hot lead active, and the pumps run by applying the return lines. Your problem could be in the wiring from the pump back to the negative.

Did you check the fuel inertia switch in the passenger side kick panel ?

The fuel pump is powered :
the fuse to the fuel pump relay.
The fuel pump relay to the fuel inertia switch
The fuel inertia switch to the fuel pump itself.

At the fuel inertia switch in the kick panel, power from the relay is the Dark Green w/ Yellow stripe wire and the pink w/ black stripe wire is the power. from the fuel inertia switch to the fuel pump.

If you jumper the fuel pump relay, you should hear it run. If not pull the fuel pump relay, and check the pins in the relay socket, pin 30 should be the power from the fuse.


If you have power at pin #30, jumper the relay socket as shown with the red line above, and check the dark green w/ yellow stripe wire at the fuel inertia switch for power.
Press the button on the top of the fuel inertia switch, and check for power leaving the fuel inertia switch on the pink w/ black stripe wire.

This is tests good, check for power at the fuel pump, same pink w/ black stripe wire.
Fuel inertia switch info is in the owners manual, If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :

Can I use an external fuel pump on this vehicle it has throttle body injection and has a 5.0 motor I have an external fuel pump it pumps 1.0 GPM at 35 PSI

im guessing here , but what im thinking your asking is, "hey my intank fuel pump has gone bad can I substitute an external fuel pump for it on my throttle body injected vehicle " ??? does this sound close ?
if so then heres what I know about em.
the intank pumps don't require a fuel circulation loop because they use the fuel in the tank to cool the pump at low flow times (idle) , if you were to use an external pump it [pressure would have to be close to the intank model (50 to 80 psi) and in the interest of safety all the connections would have to be swaged or threaded ,no hose barbs and clamps also if there isn't already installed a fuel return line would need to be plumbed in as well or pump will overheat and leak fuel , as well the old pump would have to be removed from tank as fuel flow wouldn't be enough at full throttle thru the dead pump and then a new outlet pipe would have to be fabbed up , so to answer your question if I got it right ? is yes but why would you want to you'd end up changing so much stuff it be easier to just get a new pump !!

Defective fuel pump. Should I replace it or install an external one?

Steve, isn't that a better way just to buy a new pump on eBay and replace it DYI? It'll not be $225 - that's the price mechanic told you (included his work of 2 hours = $170)

Need help replacing fuel pump. 1996 ford thunderbird lx. 3.8 can't locate how to remove gas tank.

Disconnect the battery & any fuel lines you can and the same with electrical connectors first of all. Drain the tankwith a siphon pump if 3 gallons or more of fuel is present. It gets heavy to replace back in and dangerous too.. Have the tank supported now & remove the bolts from the tanks mounting straps. Drop the tank down about 6 inches and check for other connection that need to be removed
RFemove the center retainer to remove the fuel pump with the sending unit
I would replace both items since it is an older car and also replace the filter sock to the pump too
Reverse this procedure to install

How to get to the fuel pump in a ford explorer

The fuel pump is mounted inside the fuel tank. Ford doesn't provide any sort of access "door" to get to the pump with the tank still installed in the vehicle. The tank will have to be removed to replace the pump.
