You may have a failed fuel pump

I doubt the fuse or relay are a problem

The safety shut off as you call it, is not
the problem, unless you had a very serious crash

If you intent to drop the fuel tank in your driveway
yourself and not use a repair shop, let us know

The relay should be located on the driver side in a fuse box under the hood, pop the lid off look in side the lid to find out which one controls the fuel pump

96 chevy truck, fuel pump relay switch (located under the hood, driver's side wheel well) keeps shorting out and melting fuse panel


I would replace the fuel pump and the fuel pump connector, both have problems in this year that cause excessive current draw and blow the fuse and overheat the system. If the relay socket terminals are discolored from heat that must be replaced as well. Of course before replacing any parts have a GM dealer confirm the problems i have guessed are to the cause.

96 explorer will turn over but not start,i think fuel pump is bad. Where is it located and what to replace it


fuel pump is in gas tank. fuel shut off switch is on the passenger side front floor pan on the firewall behind the side panel at your right toes. will car start with starting fluid sprayed into air intake. If it does then you have a fuel problem, if it doesnt then check for spark and check fuse and relays and other options before replacing expessive fuel pump

Truck will not start and i need to know where the fuel pump relay is located?


Your fuel pump relay is in the under the hood fuse box and should be marked. If not looking into the fuse box you"ll have two rows of fuses (side by side ) totaling 18 fuses, there are two relay just above the two rows of fuses and the one directly above the fuses is the fuel pump relay. Also you mite want to check your inertia switch and make sure the red center button is depressed ! you"ll find the inertia switch located behind the right hand kick panel (down on the floor inside the vehicle,passengers side ) good luck thanks for using fixya

2000 ranger fuse diagram


Fuel Pump relay switch is in the main box usually located on the drivers side Fender in a black box. According to the owner's manual in the power distribution box in the engine
compartment (Ford recommends disconnecting your battery)
Relay # 5 is the fuel pump relay , and also in the PD BOX is a 20 amp mini-fuse
for the fuel pump relay + RAP module in location # 9


( P.S. - don't forget your fuel pump inertia switch , in the right front passenger area ,
by the right front kick panel )Sometimes this gets kicked by passenger or if the car is bummed hard it could set this item to shut down fuel system. Best of Luck
