Question about Ford Escort
The fuel pump is controlled by the fuel pump relay.The relay in engine compartment fuse box , under the hood.If that relay fails the fuel pump will not function properly.Also check if there is short in wires.If yes, then directly connect fuel pump to a 12 volt battery source and check, if its getting started.If it starts, that means the wirings are to be replaced.But if its not starting with 12 volt battery connected directly, then its faulty fuel pump.Get it replaced. The fuel pump relay is controlled by the ecm( the cars computer also called engine control module).If all the wires and relay checked out ok and still the problem, then its faulty ecm.It has to be replaced.----------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
