Question about Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

The fuel pump has been changed, however it does not pump fuel. A by-pass swith was installed and it works. What makes this happen. Could it be the ignition switch causing the problem. When the by-pass switch is turned on the car will start and run.

Chances are the fuel pump relay has died, and the bypass switch is turning it on in the absence of the relay. Replace your fuel pump relay and you should be able to get rid of the bypass switch.

Car is not getting gas to motor even after new fuel filter is installed


If you change the fuel filter and still not getting fuel to the engine, then the other possible problems are:
- Clogged fuel lines due to 'dirty' fuel.
- Defective Fuel Pump which may not provide enough pressure to 'push' the fuel pass your new filter.

Hope it helps.

My new fuel pump is not working when key is turned on. i get no fuel to the TBI. is this the TBI relay?or the fuel pump relay swith?


The fuel pump should run a couple seconds when you turn the key on. The relay is on the firewall. There is also a fuel pump fuse (20 amp), on the firewall, make sure its good. The wire that comes out of the relay to the pump is either TAN/WHITE or PINK/BLACK. At the relay the ORANGE wire should be HOT , 12V at all times.

I have a 2001 saturn ls and the fuel pump want send fuel. it has a new pump and filter and power to the pump. dose this car have a fuel safty switch


The pump has power, but does it have a ground? I've never seen a fuel safety cut off switch on a Saturn before. Usually those switches cut power to the pump and if you verified that it has power then you can rule out the possibility of a switch being tripped. Did you change the whole module or just the pump? How did you verify that the pump is still not working?

Fuel pump dose not run 99 ford sable


there is also a trianary switch in the cargo area (trunk) make sure this swith has not poped up just push it down if you hear it click it was probably tripped. If it tripped it may need replaced. These switches were used by Ford for many years to stop the fuel pump from running in the event of a crash. Also have you checked the fuse or the relay these are the areas to start before pulling the tank

1994 S10 Blazer Fuel Issues?


are you sure the pump you installed is not defective it does happen more than you can believe. If you can run a power to the pump hot line or jump the relay and have a ear to hear if it is pumping, this is what I would suggest.. Good luck

Fuel gauge


Well, your fuel gauge can be stuck at the 3/4 mark. Or you bent it while installing it, causing a wrong reading.

Take out the fuel pump and ensure when the float is at the empty position your gauge is at E. If not adjust it properly. Also make sure your connections are correct. You said you swith the wires, don't see how they only go one way unless you have the nut and screw type.

Again, I think you bent it while installing it.. Also make sure you put the pump in correctly, you could have installed it the wrong way not letting the float ..............float!
