Yes. power comes from the fuel pump relay to that switch then to the pump Of course the wire will only have power in the crank mode, or for 2 seconds when key is turned to ON.

I have a 2000 ford windstar that is getting no power to the fuel pump already tried the relay and relay switch

  • Are you saying you are getting power to the relay but not to the pump itself? Does the relay "click" when the ignition is turned to the on position? Does the pump hum? Have you took a multimeter and checked for polarity at the pump? At the relay?

  • If you respond to these questions this will help me further assist you. Also any other things you may have tried along with what was happening before the pump started failing.

I cant find the fuel reset button in the back right side of my 1999 ford windstar to see if it needs reset. IF I do find it what fuse can i check if its not the problem?

Fuel shut off switch is located in the back of the vehicle on right side where your jack is stored. You have to remove jack and pull out some plastic covers to expose fuel shut off switch.
First Check your fuel pressure on the fuel rail in the engine compartment. Could be your fuel pump malfunctioning.
