Re: Fuel Pump Relay
Obviously, you can jump the relay but it is dangerous on an extended basis. You'd have pressure in the lines when you don't want it there. Replace the relay if it is defective.
If you have other issues, you can check the pump back to the tank by going on the business end of the relay and looking for resistance at the pump to ground. If it is open, the pump or the harness is bad...GMs have harness issues...not Fords.

First, the power relay turns on engine computer. Then the engine computer turns on the fuel pump relay which in turn, turns on the fuel pmp for 5 seconds, unless the engine is running. If you have a new pump, check for spark right after it dies next time.
Check for fuel pressure on the fuel rail while turning the key to start,if there is fuel pressure(enough)then the injectors are not pulsing(allowing fuel into the intake).The pick up coil in the distributor,will be the problem,unless it is distribuless ignition,then the cam sensor would be at fault.
