Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
Every time you turn the key to RUN position, you should be able to hear a humming noise that lasts 2 seconds coming form the fuel tank, it is the fuel pump kicking in. I you don't hear any noise at all, on the engine compartment fuse box you'll find the fuel pump relay, swap it with another relay with the same numbers on top, like the AC Clutch or Cooling Fan relays, have someone turn the key to RUN while you hear and feel the relay, you should hear a click and feel it, if you do, try to start the vehicle, if you don't, check starting system wiring.
If you hear the click and the pump still do not work, check wiring at the fuel pump electrical connector, check for12 volt using the ground cable on the harness, not from the chassis. If 12 v is present when the key is turned to RUN, your fuel pump may be defective.
Keep me posted!!
