You can look in your owners manual under the fuse section and see which fuse it actually is that you are jiggling. If it is the fuel pump fuse, you might want to consider having the ampage drop to the fuel pump tested. It should be around 4 amps. If it is higher than that it maybe heating up things and causing a short at the fuse block which can cause additonal problems.

Why want my 93 ford ranger pick up start without pouring gas into the intake fuel pump want come on unless hot wired straight to batt

There is a fuel shut off switch (inertia fuel shut off-opens on impact) in the wiring between the fuel pump relay (in the under-hood fuse/relay box) and the gas tank. It may have opened. I don't know where it is located, it may be behind a kick panel under the dash. You may have to ask someone where it is.

The fuel pump fuse is a 20amp fuse, also in the engine compartment fuse/relay box. This fuse and it's wire is the power feed for the fuel pump relay.

2000 Camaro fuel pump/ fuel filter/ and fuel pressure regulator all replaced, still no gas getting to the motor.. mechanic is stumped, don't know what it is.. my car started getting harder than normal to...

i can tell your mech is not ASE pro. not at all.
guessing is for squids.
a pro uses his tools.
he didnt now you are broke, find a real ASE mech, and save $$$
so what was the fuel pressure.

if the pressure (generic answer) at the rails is not 30 psi
and your mech cant figure that out, fire him.
dont argue with him, just move on.
if the pressure is good at the rail and 1PSI (squirt tests are useless) then check the pumps stall shunt pressure.
if at spec the regulator is leaking.
if the pump fails the shunt test its is weak.
check for 12v key on for 3 seconds in to said pump.
if 12v dont land there, bingo now power.
sorry 8v is no good, 12 or as low as 11v lowest there, at the pump.
the pump is not running full time the ECU prevent that and the
TV crash and burn issue. it runs for 3 seconds each keyon.
some older cars, only have pump voltage cranking.
read the FSM , its all there, including all the test and all these pressures, .

sorry your mech, sux, truely ! i am sorry for you.
find the ASE badge on his /her sleeve, see that>\?
no? the Walkonbye. (pun included )

Hi every1,i got a 1.4 zectec ford focus it will not start , it trys 2 turn over but fails 2 start, put new starting motor in and new battery, still will not start check fuel pump and plugs all are fine,...

You need compression, fuel, and spark to make it run.
So one of the three is missing.
Have you checked fuel pressure and spark at the plugs ?

1987 GMC sierra , no fuel pump power.

The inline fuel pump fuse on the passenger side firewall is good? Are you jumping it with 12 volts at the test lead or the fuse?

The fuel injectors

the first thing you should check if your car doesnt start is compression, then ignition, then fuel, in that order, even if you got spark and fuel without compression your going no where
