Hi, check the fuse, and the fuel pump relay, if that dose not solve the problem then you will need to dig deeper and start with tracing the wires from the fuel pump back looking for any frays or any spots where the wire could be broken. Sometimes the wire can be broken inside while the shielding is still in tact so you will need to look and feel very carefully. Let me know if this helps. Thanks, Bob

I want to know to to install my kill switch nothing wrong with it and to know we're to put where it belongs

A kill switch is an effective and economical way to dissuade a thief from taking your car. While it may not prevent a professional thief from stealing it, it will likely deter the average amateur. The key to how to install a kill switch is the choice of what type of switch and where to place it. A kill switch that controls the power to you fuel pump is far more effective then a regular battery kill switch, because it is unexpected and can be well hidden.


Moderately Easy

Things You'll Need:

Wiring diagram for vehicle Electrical tape Toggle switch Drill Phillips head screwdriver #14 wire Inline fuse Wire crimping pliers (2) **** connectors (2) Post connectors (type dependent on switch)


Park your car on a level spot with the parking brake on. Raise the hood and disconnect the battery cable.

Use your wiring diagram to locate the power wire for your fuel pump. Make sure this is the power wire and not the ground by following the wire to the fusebox (or ignition). The ground will terminate to a connection to the frame of the car. Place a 'tag' on the power wire under the dash with a piece of electrical tape so you can find it again easily.

Open the package to your toggle switch and remove the mounting bracket and hardware. Follow the directions to mount the switch under your car's dash, or on the body of the driver's seat. You will need to use a drill if you do not have pre-drilled holes for the mounting screws. Make sure the switch is tightly installed by pressing firmly into the screws with your Philips Head screwdriver and turning it clockwise until it is hand tight.

Cut the power wire to your fuel pump with the middle section of your electrical crimping pliers.

Cut two pieces of #14 wire long enough to run from the back of the kill switch to the cut power wire.

Strip the ends of the cut power wire and both ends of each piece of #14 wire. Use **** connectors to connect a #14 wire to each of the ends of the power wire. Crimp the **** connector closed over the joined wires ,and pull lightly to make sure the connection is solid.

Attach the wire connectors to the bare ends of the two pieces of #14 wire (style will depend on the connectors of your toggle switch), crimp into place and tug test again.

Connect the #14 wire that joins the power wire that goes into fusebox or ignition box to the connection on the toggle switch that is above the base of the toggle (there will be only two connectors on the back of the switch; do not use the 3 post kind, as that is a lighted switch and easily found).

Connect the remaining #14 wire to the switch. Re-connect the negative cable to the battery and test your switch, make sure you can hear the pump come on, and you are done.

Tips & Warnings

Re-wire any accessories that need constant power (like the clock, radio or any other anti-theft devices you have) directly to the battery.

Never do any work on any electrical component of the battery without first disconnecting the negative cable on the battery; if it remains connected, you run the risk of a shock or fire while working.

How do i test fuel pump on cbr1100x blackbird

You should hear the pump working when the ignition is turn on will tell you the electics are working, for fuel flow you will need a plastic large cup or beaker to catch fuel pull a rubber glove over the beaker and cut a finger off to insert the fuel line,
lift the tank you will see 2 hoses and the wiring coming from the pump the rubber hose is the return the banjo is the feed remove the banjo from the fuel rail and fit through the glove finger you cut eariler.

Turn the key ( with the kill swith on) and when the pump primes you should see steady flow of fuel to the beaker.

If you cant hear the pump work when the the ignition is first turned on
remove the pump wiring coupler and put your feed in beaker as before.
You will need a 12v battery & 2 wires 2ft with 2 connectors fitted on one end of each wire,
Connect one wire to + one to - on the battery, on the pump coupler you only need 2 wires the rest are for the fuel lights ect,

I was having problems with my starter on a 1993 chevy suburban k1500 4x4. replaced starter, still wouldn't start. replaced battery, fuel pump, sending unit and fuel pump relay. fuel pump fuse is good. ...

Confused as to why you are replacing things that crank the engine over, like the starter, and things that are just for fuel, like the pump?

Can't tell if it is cranking over or just not firing?

But if it is not cranking, then consider the ignition switch, neutral safety switch, engine ground strap, and battery terminals.

If you think it is not getting fuel, then try some starting fluid, to make sure it does spark at least.

If it does have spark and cranks, then you should put a gauge on the fuel rail. If there is no pressure when you try to start, then check voltage at the pump with a test light.
If none, then follow back to relay.
If none there, then try jumping at the relay, just for testing.
If that works, then it could be safety cutout system.
Some vehicles use an inertial switch, some use oil pressure switch, some use alternator feedback.

How to wire intermatic T-1906 for a 220 well pump?

T1906 is 240V timer with 240V clock motor
There are 4 terminals: NO NC COM Clock
NO terminal (normally open) turns ON when the timer turns on
NC terminal (normally closed) is ON at all times except when timer turns on.

You want your pump connected to the NO terminal so it turns ON when timer turns on.

How to wire:
240V has 2 Hots from breaker box > these connect to COM and Clock terminals (either color wire to either terminal)
Your pump has 2 wires > these wires connect to NO and Clock terminals (either color wire to either terminal)
The bare copper wires connect together and connect to green screw.

If your wires from breaker and pump are reversed, the manual override will work, but the timer clock will not rotate dial. If this is the case, then switch NO and COM wires.

No Power to Fuel pump

I would check the ground for the fuel pump relay that operates the switch side of the relay.
You should have 2 12v inputs to the relay. When the relay gets 12v input, it closes the relay switch on the heavy current side that sends 12v to the fuel pump.

A relay is needed because you don't want heavy current going through the switch.

Also, most cars only run the fuel pump for 2 seconds when the key is turned on because you don't want the fuel pump running without the car running. If you listen closely at the fuel tank, you should hear the pump run for 2 seconds when you turn the key to "ON"
When the key is turned to "START", the fuel pump should run continuously.
The engine computer tells the fuel pump to shut off if the engine rpms are zero.
So, I would check the switch side of the relay. Power amd ground.

Fuel pump won't power up on 94 rf600r

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On most Suzukis with fuel pump that I have worked on, the wiring would be:
  • Yellow/Green - start interlock, connected to the clutch lever position switch and/or starter control relay;
  • Black/White - ground;
  • Orange/Yellow - ignition B+12; and
  • Black/Yellow - trigger pulse, connected to the - terminal of one of the ignition coils and/or to the CDI/igniter.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
