Question about 1996 Ford Mustang
This sounds like a fuel pump relay.Since it cranks,that means everything input to the PCM is good.These are start relay,start solenoid,starter,ignition switch and brake safety switch.The direct output are the fuel pump relay and a relay called an auto shut down relay,which is directly activated by the fuel pump relay to power the coil and injectors.Since the 2 relays are obviously the cheapest,take a reading at both.Some makers do not have a shut down relay but I think those are mainly Chevy.The CCRM,I am not sure what that stands for.As for the battery charger,I would need to know a little more about the situation.If you drained your battery trying to start your car but wouldn't,they are not likely related.As for the fuel pump,I wish you would have researched a little more because I know it is expensive and a pain in the a** to change.Relays go bad more often although 2 years I changed my pump on my 1995 Ford Escort.Wht I'm trying to get t is to try starting with cheaper fixes first,then you won't feel so bad if it doesn't fix. :( Just a suggestion but I have been doing repairs for years and have a system worked out due to experience.Relays are the most common fail items too,as well as switches,bulbs,and many other components but if you notice,most of these items are relatively cheap.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.Good luck,Greg

After checking the fuse in the under the hood fuse box,if its ok next I want you to look in the trunk on the left side ,your looking for a black plastic switch with a red button in the center of it, check to see if the red button is pushed down, this switch is called the Inertia switch which upon impact is designed to break the voltage flow to the fuel pump, if that is depressed and the fuse is good next you need to obtain a 12 volt test light, you should have two wires going into the inertia switch one dark green with a yellow tracer,and another that brown with a pink tracer ,find a good ground point to hook up your test light clamp to (in the trunk, near your inertia switch,make sure you have a good ground or you will get falase results causing you to replace parts that you don't need) next you need to back probe the switch at the dark green and yellow wire , this next step require's a asstance to turn the ignition switch from off to the run postion,at this point (from when the key is turned from off to run ) you should see your test light glow for 10 seconds then go out,this is normal, if you in fact find that your light does glow then we know that your fuse is ok, your engine control module is good and your new ccrm is working correctly ,next in want you to back probe the brown and pink wire at the inertia switch and have your assistance re cycle the key from off to the run postion (this will test the inertia switch) again your test light should glow for 10 second ,this brown and pink wire is the wire going down to the fuel pump.if you find you have a glowing light on the green with yellow but not on the brown and pink you have a bad inertia switch. hope this helps ,if you still don't fine the problem ,write back and give me the results of your test and we will continue from there, remember thur incomplete test will only lead to replacing un nessary parts
