Question about 1995 Dodge Ram 2500

1 Answer

Truck won't start cold, fuel pump relay and a.s.d relay clicking no fuel or spark. eventually when the clicking stops I hear the fuelpump run and with some difficulty I can start the engine. it runs pretty rough for a while then evens out. I'm thinking the trouble is in the a.s.d circuit, but don't know where to start. Never had trouble since buying the truck in 1998, ran flawless for over 200,000, please help me. Pete

I would replace the A S D relay. it's located in the fuse box under the hood. It's inexpensive at the dealer. My ASD relay was acting up, and it wanted to bog down while driving, and sputter pulling away from a red light. once it finally goes, the vehicle won't start at all.

I hope this helps

1988 ford f150 won't stay running


I You can get free fusebox layouts at Autozone.com by registering your vehicle.

Try changing the fuel filter. May be too much resistence is causing the fuelpumps to trip their limit switches.

If you have not used a scanner, someone may have one for this old style system. An bad O2 sensor can adjust the fuel mix too lean to run.

If you have a fuelpressure regulator, it may only cycle once for starting and then fail to trigger the fuelpump a second time to restart the fuelpump.

Check with FordF150blog.com or some of the 4x4 truck offroad sites for some pretty good info about problems like yours in the Backwoods and how to fix them.

I hope my solution is helpful.

2005 ranger 3.0 truck starts pump runs presser good pump stops no presser after a few minnits


If you are talking about the fuel pump, you have only a few cheap fixes before blaming the expensive fuel pump. The fuel pump relay can overheat and kick out. A new relay could fix this. Autozone.com offers free fusebox layouts and wiring diagrams just for registering your truck with them for free.

Sometimes the horn relay will interchange with other relays. Look at the part numbers and use the horn to test the fuel pump relay. Or switch the 2 relays.

A fuel filter could be clogged and overloading the fuel pump. Put in a new filter.

After that, its a case of testing the fuelpump leads and see if the fuelpump is shut down.

I hope my solution helps.

My dodge dakota truck will not start. It has power we tried to pop the clutch too.


do you mean the truck won`t start and run or do you mean it won`t turn over with the key.if it won`t turn over with the key the you may have a starter problem.if you mean won`t start then it could be the fuel pump not working.with someone cranking the motor you should hear the fuel pump running with the gas cap off and listening at the filler neck.or hear it running listening under the truck at the gas tank.if you don`t hear it then you can hit the tack sharply with your hand or a rubber hammer,it hear the pump start to run then the fuel pump needs replacing.if not check the fuses under the dash and under the hood.if they are good then it may be the pump relay in the relay box under the hood and it should be marked on the box or lid.

Truck acts like it wants to start but it won't turn over, changed fuel filter. now i need to find out where and what to check out next. thanks in advance:)


The Inertia safety switch may have tripped on you. Depending on which Model of Ford you have, the Inertia switch is in different places. The most common place is at the top of the Drivers kick panel or the Passengers kick panel. Sometimes a hole is provided to allow a finger to pass through to press a button on top of the switch. On other Models, the kick panel must be removed. Yet a third place would be behind the glovebox around the computer.

When you turn the Key to Run, a short burst of the fuelpump will pressurize the system and then it waits until the engine starts, then continues running. You should hear the fuelpump run. When the button on the Inertia switch is pressed it makes a circuit.

Your truck should also have a Relay for the fuelpump and the Ignition. If the Inertia switch reset does not help, one of the Relays may be bad. Check whether you have spark at the plugs and go from there. If you have spark, you may not have fuel and need a fuelpump Relay.

I hope my solution is helpful to you.

I have replaced the fuel pump amongst a lot of other things. I can spray gas or starting fluid in the throtal body and it will run rough untill the fumes ware out. Its a 1995 ford explorer 4x4 xlt


If you hear the fuelpump operate the first 1 or 2 seconds when the key is turned to RUN position, the fuelpump is working. If you do not hear the fuelpump run, check the Inertia switch which should be in the side panel of the rear cargo area. If you have an owners manual check for the Inertia switch location.

To reset the Inertia switch, hold the button on it for 2-3 seconds. You should now hear the pump run. You may also have a fuelpump relay under the hood in one of the Powerboxes. The Powerbox may have a fusible link from the Battery. When the fusible link is OK and the Pump Relay is OK, there is a fuse in the Fuse panel. Then finally the Ignition switch will trip the Pump relay. As power flows through the wire to the fuelpump the Inertia switch can break the power connection.

So you have 5 powerpoints before the fuelpump will work. Fusible link, Pump Relay, Fuse Panel, Ignition Switch,and Inertia switch. These must all work before the fuelpump can run.

1987 ford 150. Here is the problem. She will cold start and even run but once she gets warm up the fuel injectors stop pumping and she shuts off. You can tell it's not getting gas.


There are 2 possibilities that I know of. First, the module has a cold start circuit that switches to a RUN circuit after a temperature switch warms up. I can't say if the spark would stop before the gas does so if you feel this is a gas problem the module may not be your problem.

The second possibility is the fuel pump. There should be a fuel pump relay in addition to the fuse. Since it is not blowing the fuse, your relay may be cutting out. You may have a clogged fuel filter making the fuelpump overwork. It would help if you can get a pressure reading from the gas line.

Autozone and Oreillys do loan out tools with a deposit. They also scan your vehicle for free. Then you can test fuelpump pressure cold and hot.

Jeep won't start until a clicking sound comes from fuse box


The click you hear is the fuel pump relay. It gets its signal to energize from the PCM.If you have a faulty Crankshaft Position Sensor, the PCM will not work. Check for a bad fuel pump relay and also all of the other sensors: Camshaft Position Sensor, MAP Sensor, Idle air Control, Intake Air Sensor,etc.
