Where is there a jumper bypass for the fuel pump relay on a 1993 chevrolet K1500 pickup 5.7

There were code keys that you could plug into the diagnostic port to bypass the relay pre 95 that you could get from the dealership for about $1 however have not seen them in years if you go to a dealer parts window and ask them they should be able to print a diagnostic port diagram and tell you which terminals to jump to test the fuel pump circuit

2004 Ford Ranger Fuel Pump Failure

You'll need a wiring diagram for the fuel pump.
I doubt the inertia switch would cause the problem just sitting.
I would start with the fuel pump relay.

99 f150 6cyl- the problem started with the pickup cutting out when I would try to give it gas and speed up. I changed the fuel filter but that didn't help, I changed the spark plugs and that...

Rather then guessing as to what the problem is learn to test ! Check the electrical circuit , hook up a fuel pressure gauge , use a spark tester to see if it has spark . Do you like buying parts you don't need ? Other wise your better off having a qualified repair shop check it out .

Need location of the fuel pump relay on a 1990 toyota pu, six cylander 4x4

The Feol pump/circuit opening relay is located inside the cab on a relay block either behind the glove bosx or the right kick panel, I'll see if I can locate a location diagram and post it in a follow up. In the meantime locate the diagnostic check connector under the hood,it's located near the right fender on a fuse block, open the cover and put a jumper wire between the terminals FP and B+, turn the key on and let me know if this makes the fuel pump run.

I am trying to find the fuel pressure regulator and the fuel pump relay on a 88 Chevy S-10 pickup 2.5L.

Have you tried checking with autozone? They can tell you where it is from their computer. I have a 99 k2500 and my fuel pressure regulator is located under my intake manifold, my fuel pump relay is under the hood on the drivers side over the wheel well. I Take It you are having problems starting your truck. Can You hear your fuel pump when you turn the key? Have you checked to see how much fuel pressure you have ?

No power to the fuel pump. looking for a wiring diagram.

The 15a efi fuse pwoers the computer fuel system components including the pump. If you NEVER have pump power, I would check the FP terminal in the underhood diag connector...this is the FUEL PUMP POWER wire tap. If it never gets off zero at any key position (Run or crank) your problem is either wiring, the circuit opening/Fuel pump relay, or the efi main relay, or the fuse itself. If it has power in 1 position but not the other, suspect wiring, or possibly the airflow meter. fuel pump switch power is run thru the airflow meter, if its not hooked up, the fuel pump relay cannot be closed in the run position, or if its open internally or the contacts are bad.

1996 chevrolet fuel pump relay

you are going to have to have the wires from the underside of the relay checked for a short or the contacts for the relay to plug to for tightness.Fuel pumps usually dont burn up relays wires burn up relays like maybe even a pinched wire when the tank was removed and re installed.

Fuel pump not activating and delivering fuel to carb, 1985 Nissan

My truck will start for only a few seconds

There is a relay that supplies the voltage to the fuel pump during starter operation and for two seconds after start-up. There is another relay that closes to provide the run voltage.
The run relay is located in the fuse/relay box mounted on the left inside fender. See the cover label.
Another source of your problem could be the igniton switch, as it returns to the run position, with contact failure.
Also check all the fuses, you never can tell with these computerized motors withou having the actual wiring diagrams.

I have a 87 plymouth voyager Le with a 3.0 engine ( not sure if its stock or not )

You should have a fuel pump relay you can check on firewall or fender with other relays in the area. Check part #'s, on relays,sometimes they will swap for testing if same number.
