Question about 2002 Triumph TT 600

Bad Fuel Pump?

Trying to determine if my fuel pump died on my 02 TT600. I no longer hear the initial whine when you turn the key. Pulled the fuel pump out and checked for 12 volts input. The 12V is present. Are there any other checks I can do to determine bad fuel pump before I spend $200 plus for a new fuel pump?

Yes, you can remove the outlet pipe from the fuel pump and see if there is a flow of gas as you switch on the ignition taking care to have a container to catch the gas from the outlet pipe.
If there's no flow of fuel....means either its dead or may have some obstraction at the inlet of the pump.
Hope this helps!

Problem starting

When you turn the key to on before start do you hear the fuel pump whine for a few seconds? If you hear the whine it could be fuel filter or no spark. If no whine squirt gas into throttle. Then start the car if it starts the problem is in fuel delivery (bad fuel filter, fuel pump or fuel pump fuse). If it did not start then its spark related(cam or crankshaft sensor, ignition coil)

Will not start seems to have plenty of battery. however it will not turn over.

Check for spark. If no spark it can be the cam or crank shaft position sensors. Turn key to on do you hear the fuel pump whine for a second or two. If you hear the pump it could be clogged fuel filter. If you dont hear whine check fuse then check for voltage at fuel pump. If volts at fuel pump then it could be the pump.

I'd have to test when problem is ongoing. When you first turn on key, no crank, you should hear the pump run for a few seconds then stop. For initial prime, the computer doesn't need rpm signal. Engine cranking, the computer needs to see rpm signal or it won't ground the fuel pump relay. W/o rpm signal, no spark at the plugs and no fuel injector pulse. I know your talking about fuel, but, when problem is ongoing, check spark and fuel injector pulse, engine cranking.
Intermittent problems are a pain, have to test when problem is ongoing.

There is no "reset" for the fuel pump. If the pump is good, the fuel level in the tank will not make it go bad. If the pump is no longer pumping, it probably needs to be replaced.

Fuel pump reset

well ive never heard of a reset for a fuel pump but if you put your ear to the gas tank and have someone turn the key on (not start) and see if you hear a buzzing sound if you dont then the pump is bad.

Truck won't start, can't hear either fuel pump 1992 Ford F 150 5.

If you can't hear the fuel pump when you turn the key to the on position trying to build up fuel pressure, it is most likely either a voltage issue at the fuel pump or you need to replace the fuel pump. Have you checked your fuel filter? Try turning on the key without engaging the starter and see if you hear the whine of the fuel pump.

Good Luck

I have a 91 buick century that suddenly dies and now is not getting any fuel. Possible bad fuel pressure regulator? or fuel vaccumm?

Bad fuel pump maybe. Turn the car on and stand near the rear of the car. If the fuel pump is running, you will hear it. Very high pitched whining noise. If it is all quiet, the pump not running. GM fuel pumps are loud.

02 camaro wont start fuel pump relay or fuel pump ? How to tell ? The car started right up then died & wont start ! I dont hear the noise from fuel pump when I turn key !!

Take the fuel line off before the filter and turn the key on and see if you get any fuel out of the line. If you don't get any fuel unplug the wire connector to the fuel pump turn the key on and see if you get a hot wire going to the pump. if you get a hot wire then it is your pump. If you do not get any hot wire then it should be the relay.
