Hi, your circuitry is shown below. The relay coil is powered by the PCM relay but get's it's ground turn-on from the PCM separately. There is an intertia switch in the power circuit, and If you have dual tanks, there is also the tank switch to worry about. What I would do is interrogate the pump relay socket to see what's going on. Pull the relay out and use a 12 volt test light as follows:

Connect the test light clip to chassis ground, and probe the relay socket. You should get one hot terminal from the 20 amp fuse O. Next, turn the key on and probe the socket again. You should have 2 hot terminals, the additional one coming from the PCM relay.

Next, move your test light clip to battery positive and probe the socket again. With the key still on, you should get a light from the PCM ground signal. This is the one that is usually a problem. If you don't get this light, the PCM is not turning the pump on (perhaps due to a security system) or you have a bad wire from the PCM (pin 22) to the relay.
There is also usually a dim light on the last terminal (that goes to the pump). If you don't get that dim light, your inertia switch or tank switch may have failed open.

Please let me know if you have questions and thanks for using FixYa.

Look out under hood on drivers side for a power relay these are known to blow.If its blown it will not allow any power to the ignition system at all.It should be in a fuse panel under the hood.

Fuel pump not geting power


CHECK THE INERTIA SWITCH FIRST , IT'S LOCATED BEHIND THE PASSENGER SIDE KICK PANEL THERE IS A ACCESS HOLE TO CHECK RESET BUTTON.. CHECK FOR POWER AT THE TERMINALS WHILE THERE ...THE FUEL PUMP WILL RECIEVE POWER FOR 2 SECONDS WHEN IGNITION IS TURNED ON IF NO POWER (12VOLTS) CHECK FUEL PUMP RELAY IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT RELAY BOX , IF NEEDED SWAP RELAYS AND RETEST , ALSO THE POWER RELAY SUPPLIES VOLTAGE TO PCM WHICH IN TURN ENERGIZES FUEL PUMP RELAY SO CHECK BOTH RELAYS ALSO

HOPE THIS HELPS

Mechanical difficulties


sounds like a clogged fuel filter or a fuel pump that is not delivering enough volume .. they had some trouble with fuel pumps about that year but not sure on the f150 .. if you let the fuel level get too low then it would overheat and damage the fuel pump ... here is instructions on testing the fuel pump.:

1997 Ford F150 Electric Fuel Pump will npt pump


Did you check the fuel inertia switch in the passenger side kick panel ?

The fuel pump is powered :
the fuse to the fuel pump relay.
The fuel pump relay to the fuel inertia switch
The fuel inertia switch to the fuel pump itself.

At the fuel inertia switch in the kick panel, power from the relay is the Dark Green w/ Yellow stripe wire and the pink w/ black stripe wire is the power. from the fuel inertia switch to the fuel pump.

If you jumper the fuel pump relay, you should hear it run. If not pull the fuel pump relay, and check the pins in the relay socket, pin 30 should be the power from the fuse.

If you have power at pin #30, jumper the relay socket as shown with the red line above, and check the dark green w/ yellow stripe wire at the fuel inertia switch for power.
Press the button on the top of the fuel inertia switch, and check for power leaving the fuel inertia switch on the pink w/ black stripe wire.

This is tests good, check for power at the fuel pump, same pink w/ black stripe wire.
Fuel inertia switch info is in the owners manual, If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :

I don't here the fuel pump ever kick on in my 1990 Ford F150, and I tested all of the fuses and they are good. I was thinking the relay for the fuel pump might be bad -- any suggestions?


It's under your hood, in one of those boxes, and should be marked. Your pump won't cut in if it's fried either. Check to see if there is power at the pump. Maybe you just have a loose wire. You can always hope!

I need to change fuel filter for 1992 f150 [relay diagram]


To relieve the pressure, find on the fuel rail on the intake a schroeder valve, looks like a larger version of a tire valve, possibly with a cap. Remove cap, push center pin on valve to relieve pressure. Caution as high pressure fuel will come out, I hold a rag over it while I do it.
