Your asking for trouble if you don't know what your doing. If you did that the pump may never shut off in an accident and fire could be a bigger concern. Get it diagnosed first then you can repair it yourself the correct way

I have a 1999 Chevy Venture van I ran out of gas and now it won't start I don't hear the fuel pump running so I was wondering is there a emergency shutoff switch to the pump


There is no shut-off switch. Check the fuel pump fuse in the under hood fuse block. Also check for voltage on the fuse circuit, hot all the time. At the fuel pump connector, gray wire is voltage, solid black wire is ground. Have a helper crank it while you check for good voltage and ground at the connector.

New fuel pump, ccrm and fuel filter and still blowing 20 amp fuel pump fuse


If the components are all good, then check wiring connectors and wiring circuits, it appears the problem is after the ccrm. wiring from ccrm to fuel pump. For testing you should be able to use jumper wire with inline 20 amp fuse, from voltage to fuel pump connector, to see if it will run w/o blowing the fuse. As you can see from ccrm to inertia switch there are two connectors. From inertia switch to fuel pump, one connector. There are many ways to test. With connectors unplugged, you could use a test lite connected to battery voltage, touch correct wire terminal, if lite comes on, that circuit is going to ground, somewhere.
See that one wire that goes down, wire circuit from ccrm to inertia switch, that wire goes to pcm, I believe it to a monitor circuit, the pcm monitors the voltage on that circuit.

Bad oil switch/ fuel shutoff switch


Only Ford products have a fuel switch called an inertia switch.
GM products use a fuel pump relay and the oil pressure switch to provide power to the pump.

1990 ford festiva no power to fuel pump. replaced relays , fuel pump, checked safety shutoff. nothing .. ran hot wire to fuel pump and pump worked but car still not trying to start. got spark. now what


The pump should have a fuse in the fuse block. You need to check for power in the fuse block and you need to check power to the pump relay.

Sometimes there is a fusible link to the Relay. If you check the connector terminals for power where the Relay plugs in, you can determine if the fusible link has blown. You could have already replaced the bad parts and now need to restore power to the Relay.

Turned of car, will not start it turns over, but doesn't seem to be getting any fuel


Try A SMALL SHOT Of Starting Fluid Sprayed into the Snorkel
Intake @ Air filter. If it Starts and Does NOT Run After Burning Starting Fluid the Fuel Pump Has Failed. (My Personal Hunch) is (FUEL PUMP FAILURE) BE SURE TO ELIMINATE THE INERCIA SWITCH< it is a fuel shut off switch >>>>> WARNING: Do not reset the inertia switch button if you see or smell fuel.

  1. Turn ignition switch to OFF.
  2. Check for leaking fuel in the engine compartment, fuel lines and fuel tank.
  3. If no fuel is apparent, reset the inertia fuel shutoff switch by pushing the reset button on top of switch.
  4. Turn ignition switch to START for a few seconds, then to OFF.
  5. Again, check for leaking fuel.
LOCATION


  1. Open luggage compartment door.

Fuel Pump Circuit Operation When the ignition is switched to the ON position, it turns the EEC Power Relay on. The EEC Power Relay provides power to the EEC-IV processor and the control side of the fuel pump relay. Power for the fuel pump is supplied through a fuse link or high current fuse attached to the starter solenoid (battery side). From the fuse link or high current fuse, current flow is through the fuel pump relay and Inertia Fuel Shutoff (IFS) switch to the fuel pump. The IFS switch is a safety device used to shut off the fuel pump in the event of a collision. If the IFS switch is "tripped," it must be reset by depressing the white or red button on the top of the switch. The fuel pump relay is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM).
When the ignition switch is turned to the ON position, the fuel pump will operate. If the ignition switch is not turned to the START position, the PCM will shut the fuel pump off after approximately one second. The PCM will operate the fuel pump when the ignition is in the START position to provide fuel while cranking.
After the engine starts, the PCM will continue to operate the fuel pump unless the engine stops, engine speed drops below 120 rpm, or the IFS switch is "tripped."

System Diagnosis Note: Grounding the FP lead at the DLC will allow the pump to run continuously with the ignition switch on.

1999 lincoln fuel pump


My fuel pump on my 1998 Lincoln Continental has no power. I checked the fuse it is good. I checked the fuel shutoff switch it was fine. I have traced the wire from the fuel shutoff switch to the fuel module driver in the trunk. The wire has power. I have also traced the positve wire from the fuel pump to the fuel driver on a different terminal, this wire has no power from the pump. I also changed the fuel driver, the low fuel pressure switch, the alternator, and battery.does anyone have any suggestion's?
