My experience with cars that have been sitting for a long time, is that most of all the fuel goes bad and it turns in to something very thick and heavy, that usually clogs fuel lines and carburettor valves, the ones that open and close with the fuel level inside the carb, the same with fuel injection systems. My suggestion is to make sure that the fuel is new and check if the fuel lines are not clogged, also make sure that the fuel pump is working properly, and that on-off valve inside the carb is opening and closing. I hope this can be of help.

I am not getting a signal to my fuel pump, fuel pump relay nor the 10 amp fuel pump relay fuse. I have checked my wiring from the ECM to the FPR and it is good. Where does the power come from through the...


The fuel pump relay is powered by a fusible link connected to the starter solenoid on the positive battery terminal. That fusible link feeds the 10 amp fuse near the relay. You can test the fusible links with a 12 volt test lamp. If the fusible link test okay check for an open circuit in the wire between the link and the 10 amp fuse. Hope this gets you fixed.

Immobiliser not allowing motor to start, is it connected to fuel system? Motor turns over, but no fuel getting to throttle body. 96 model, single port


Its your fuel pump or your filter is completly cloged off. The way the fuel electrical system works is even if the relay blows the oil pressure sending unit acts as a back power system its a split ciricut and runs off fuse # 9 in the fuse box. You could try removeing the filter and see if the pump is opperating you could also check the fuse and relay. But relisticly these pumps olny last about 10 years and also have a problem with the wireing to the pump its not the correct wire to it and there is an up grade kit that comes with the new pump well good luck

Underhood fuse block swap out relay #7 thats the ECM relay.
Ground Circuits Using a DVOM, touch negative voltmeter lead to a good ground. Touch positive voltmeter lead to each ground terminal. With vehicle running, voltmeter should indicate less than one volt. If reading is greater than one volt, check for open, corrosion and loose connection on ground lead. See ECM GROUND LOCATION table for ECM ground location.

Take off the fuse cover and note the location of the in-tank fuel pump & the main pump. If memory serves they are fuses 5 & 7. connect the fuses with a jumper to bypass the pump relay. The fuel pump will come on with the key off! Listen for the sound. No Sound No Pump.
If the pump works, try starting the engine with the jumper attached. If it starts you have a bad relay behind the glove box.

Fuel supply module


Check fuses for fuel pumps, and the crank angle sensor on the back of the motor. Also check fuel pressure to make sure you are getting any fuel at all.

Also check fuel pump relay (white one in back of the fuse panel behind the cig ash tray). They last abaout 10 years and then they quit.
