If you have a test light, you could check for signal at the relay socket. If it's good there, you could check for voltage at the fuel pump connector too. See my tips at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6022358-relay_check .

What next


personally what I would do is dangerous but will tell you for sure. I have taken the fuel pump out and wired it directly to the battery just long enough to see if it comes on. I try to make sure it's as empty as possible of gas first. I have found many faulty fuel pumps with that simple test. now I do it before I ever put a new one in to make sure it works before I put it all back together just to find out many brain racking hours later it was a faulty pump

No fuel and no spark ford aspire 95


fuel pump relay directly controls the fuel pump, you can test it with a simple test light or volt meter

My 99 pontiac grand am wont idle or start i changed head gasket and intake manifold gaskets


First thing I would do is a compression test on cylinders, then fuel pressure test. Make sure your starter relay is good. If it is cranking over but not firing could be fuel relay, fuel pump, and could be as simple as a vapor lock. Spray some starter fluid in the intake, if it fires up for a couple seconds, then tells you not getting fuel, and this narrows down the search to the fuel pump relay, fuel pump.

Now your statement is YOUR CAR wont start or idle, as you can tell that is two different things. Which one is it, wont start at all? or starts then dies because it wont idle?If it wont start, then check the things I just advised, if it wont idle, then that could be plugs,coils,idle arm, fuel filter possibly clogged. List goes on and on. Need to know little more detail of what exactly it is doing, and what you have already checked or tried for me to dissect it down more direct with trouble shooting. I can help you for sure, just little more info needed, or you can go through the list I just said and it will I am sure fix problem once you check and repair or replace as you come across that problem area that is not functioning proper. Thanks Mike

200 kia sportage, wont start wont even click. Took out the battery and put it in my other car, it starts it, kia does nothing,.lights work, all electrical things work, no starting , now what?


check for fuel and spark. if no fuel, spray starting fluid in throttle body. if it starts then quits, its a fuel problem.then check fuel pump relay and or fuse to pump. have a good day !! you may be able to switch relays with another one to see if thats it. but the relays have to be the same number as the old one.

I replaced fuel pump and fuel filter but car still wont start. it will only crank if i keep putting starting fluid in it. what would be the problem?


bad fuel pump, loose wiring, blown fuse, or bad fuel pump relay. don't think just because a fuel pump is brand new out of the box it's good. i got an A/C delco fuel pump, installed it in the customers truck tried to start it .... nothing. checked all wiring, grounds, fuse, relay etc. everything was good. pulled the pump back out of the tank and wired it direct to a battery and it did nothing. got another pump installed worked just fine.

2005 dodge durango getting no fuel wont start checked fuses and relays put in new relay started right up now two months later same thing this time relay dos not make it start fuel pump not priming put...


Most modern cars are fitted with an immobiliser which could cut the power to the fuel pump relay among other stuff.

The immobiliser should arm when the ignition key is removed and disarm when the key is inserted and switched on. The key has a coded transponder chip inside about the size of a grain of rice and the on-car system needs to recognise the code.

Vehicle handbook should give you more details.

Got a 2001 S-10 2.2L 4 cyl. Engine turns over,


Fuel pump is a good idea but wouldnt be the best place to start without troubleshooting first. HAve a fuel pressure test done. You may have a simple vacuum leak or maybe even a bad fuel pump relay. If those things check out then look to the pump.
