No voltage to the fuel pump to prime the system around 9 volts when cracking motor i do have spark

    Pretty ,much the same thing is happening with mine. The only difference is that I have voltage sometimes, but when I try to start the car (with a new pump) it won't fire except when I introduce starter fluid or carb cleaner which tells me thats it's a fuel problem not spark. I disconected the hose from the fuel filter on the engine side of it and then tried to turn over the engine and no fuel even tried to come out of the filter so I have a complete shut off electrical problem. I am going to checkl the relay and fuses but as of now I don't know where it's at. Please let me know if you discover anything on this issue.

    Thanks,

    I have the EXACT same problem, ive done an induction service and just put in a new fuel pump, but no where in the manual or on the car does it tell me where the fuse or relay is. If someone knows where its at I can fix this stupid $5 problem in a minute.

Furl pump relay is located in the driver door jam fuse panel in the dash. Their are 2 relays part number "MR538851" stock manufactured by omron, their is 5 fuses in their they are the bottom 2 with one gap in between them. They start on the bottom row towards the fron by the engine compartment. Unfortnatly this was not my particular problem so I will be doing the fuel pump now. The fuse I believe was a 15amp under the hood in the distribution box, Unfortnately the fuse cover in the dash does not show the location of the fuel pump relay switches.

Make sure the battery has a full charge.

Are you missing anything besides fuel? Engine cranking visually check for spark at the spark plugs. Also, check for fuel injector pulse. If your missing everything, check for an rpm signal.

With the spider fuel system, start-up fuel pressure can be critical, around 60--66 psi. At the fuel pump connector, engine cranking, gray wire is voltage, black is ground. If good voltage and ground with no fuel pump action, have to suspect the fuel pump.

My new fuel pump only primes when wired direct?


Well you need to get out the DVOM - digital volt ohm meter an check for battery voltage at the fuel pump relay ! if you replaced it you saw the holes it plugs into in the relay / fuse box ? Put you volt meter on the 20 volt scale , hook the black lead to the battery negative or a good engine ground an take the red lead an touch - don't stick it in an spread the terminals . Two of the holes should have battery voltage ,if not check the EEC power relay ! If you find voltage at two holes change the meter to ohms , leave the black connector on a good ground an touch the red to the two holes left , one should be open or OL on the meter , this is the control side from the engine computer . the last hole should show a few ohms resistance , this is down through the wiring to an through the fuel pump to ground . You have two different wiring circuits , control an load side , load side being power to the fuel pump an control side is power an the engine computer supplying a ground energizing the relay closing the contacts in the relay sending battery voltage to the fuel pump. Test don't guess !

Start and stalls imediately


I would say ballast resistor, this is a resistor used to reduce power at the coil from 13.8 volt down to usually 9 volt. this allows an engine to have extra voltage for starting and run on the lower voltage. ballast resister faulty it runs out of spark when you disengage the starter

You already took #1 off the list.
The national auto parts chains (AutoZone, Pep Boys, and Advance Auto Parts) will hook up a
diagnostic tool to your car to perform a Charging System diagnosis for free - its an easy
way to exonerate & differentially diagnose your Alternator/Battery/Voltage Regulator.

Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect Battery Battery Discharged or Faulty.
2 Inspect Battery Cable Corroded, Broken, Shorted or Poorly Connected Battery Cable.
3 Inspect Fuel Filter Clogged or Dirty Fuel Filter.
4 Inspect Distributor Cap Distributor Cap Cracked or Burned contacts.
5 Inspect Coil - Ignition Faulty Ignition Coil.
6 Inspect Wireset Worn, Damaged or Faulty Spark Plug Wire(s).
7 Inspect Spark Plug Incorrectly Gapped or Fouled Spark Plug(s).
8 Inspect Starter Starter Motor Faulty.
9 Inspect Fuel Pump Low Fuel Pressure.
10 Inspect Solenoid Switch Faulty Starter Solenoid Switch.

1984 diesel silverado 6.2. Engine turns over, won't start?


Please check the fuel,fuel filter and the fuel pressure at the pump. If this is low then you will need to calibrate the pump. Also check the heaters and the injectors, if they have not been replaced for a long time you can check the injectors for blocks.

1999 Mercury Grand Marquis. with KOEO, voltage to fuel pump is 6.58 volts. Battery voltage is 12.47 Vdc. Removed fuel pump and installed jumper wire and fuel pump receives battery voltage. Why is voltage...


With my pump failure, I read the exact same 6.5 v at the inertia switch in my trunk with the key in the "on" position and engine not running or cranking. When cranking, the voltage to the pump jumped to +12V and if the engine did run, the voltage should stay at +12V.

The Ford manual states +12v should be at the motor for some number of seconds in the key "on" position then drop off if the engine is not cranking or does not start. In my pump failure case, I never saw 12V at the inertia switch in just the key "on" position, only +6.5V as the +12v fuel relay under the hood never engaged and/or stayed latched on.

In my situation, I measured an open circuit at the pump motor winding and suspect the +6.5V I was reading came from the Powertrain Control Module. I am also guessing if my pump winding was not open, the +6v voltage would have been +12v for a number of seconds for fuel priming as the fuel pump relay is temporarily energized, then drop to zero (relay off) if the engine does not continue to crank or run.

With my pump motor winding open, the Power Control Module may not have been loaded properly to function (reading +6.5 floating volts instead) in the key "on" position and therefore never climbed to the full +12V. There obviously was no fuel pressure at my schrader valve on the fuel rail when cranking which indicated an open wiring circuit (splice, ground or connector) or open pump winding. The 12v I was reading when cranking at least indicated the fuel pump relay was working.

With my new pump installed, I listened for the pump running in just the key "on" position. I believe I barely heard it running after the repair as it was running very quietly which indicates the +12v was there which supports my theory.

1989 astro van turns over will not start seems not getting fuil gas tank full


#1 NEED TO VERIFY SPARK AT SPARK PLUGS # 2 CK FUEL PRESSURE AT SCHRADER VALVE ON FUEL RAIL ,,PRESSURE DEPENDS ON TYPE ENGINE ....IF NO SPARK AT SPARK PLUGS CHECK SPARK FROM COIL WIRE , IF NO SPARK AT COIL ,CHECK VOLTAGE TO IGNITION COIL SHOULD BE 12 VOLTS, IF NO VOLTAGE AT COIL ( KEY ON ) CHECK FUSES THEN IGHITION SWITCH. IF NO FUEL PRESSURE AND FUEL PUMP RUNS REPLACE PUMP .. CK VOLTAGE TO FUEL PUMP WHILE CRANKING . CK USING PUMP GROUND WIRE AT THE PUMP CONNECTOR THIS WILL PROVE GROUND ALSO. USE TEST LIGHT TO VERIFY

How to check electrical problems whit the fuel pump


first turn the key on and listen for the fuel pump to come on for 15 sec.this is to prime the system before you crank the engine.no sound,with only a rubber mallet( no metal hammers )hit the bottom of the gas tank,no fuel pump operating go to the fuel pump relay and remove then test for (2) 12 volt power supplies with key on,if ok check ground at relay if okay remove gas from tank and drop gas tank to check for voltage at pump.replace pump if 12 volts is present.
