1998 Jeep grand Cherokee is not getting fire to the fuel pump. What could the problem be?

Open the hood and as you are facing the engine look to the right and you will see a fuse and relay center box. Open the relay center and look on the inside of the cover you removed and it will show you which relay is for the starter and fuel pump relay. Rather than purchase a new relay remove one of the relays from a known good location (all the relays are the same in these locations). Place the known good relay in the suspected bad relays position. If it works your problem is solved. If not and the relay is good then you need to move to the fuel pump in the fuel tank. This can be tricky and if you have not dealt with internal fuel pumps my suggestion is don't start. Remember you are playing with gasoline here and possible personal injury due to fire. Have someone who is competent to replace the fuel pump if necessary. I hope this helped. Also one other thing. If you turn the ignition switch on and you hear a whining noise that will be you fuel pump. This does not mean it is pumping it just means the electric motor to the fuel pump has power to it.

My truck wont start. I changed the battery and fuel pump. what could be the problem

Check your fuel pump relay in the fuse box under the hood located next to your battery. same thing happened to my 98 grand Cherokee. if you turn on the key and you don't hear your fuel pump then the relay is bad and needs replacing.
