Some models of cars have the fuel pump working even with the accessory turned on.

A work around is to wire a series switch on the power side of the fuel pump. Install the new fuel pump switch on the inside of the car at a convenient place. You can even hide it, and you have a theft protection switch, because when it is turned off, there will be no fuel for the engine.

When using the accessory, you can then turn the switch off. Remember to turn it on before starting the engine.

I have a 1998 Altima. It has a problem similar to your description. I cannot use the accessory to play the radio, because the electric fuel pump runs, and the heater motor stays on at the lowest position. There is no off position for the heater switch. I did not feel like going to the trouble to install a fuel pump cut-off switch. I don't use the radio with the engine switched off, therefore there is no problem for me with this.

2000 Taurus SE station wagon fuel pump how do I know if it's working when I bleed the valve underneath the hood should it a constant spurt not a constant flow or just aspart went the ignition on


The PCM - engine computer will energize the fuel pump relay for two seconds with the key , When cranking the engine the PCM will only energize the fuel pump relay if a crankshaft position input is seen . An testing fuel pump pressure should be done with a fuel pump pressure gauge only .

The fuel pump dont stop


Hi! The fuel pump is designed to run continuously as long as the ECM receives data that the engine is running. Excess fuel is passed back to the fuel tank.

The fuel pump is also designed to power up for 2-5 seconds when the ignition is turned to "RUN" to pressurize the fuel rail.

If your fuel pump runs continuously when the car is turned off, it may be a "stuck" fuel pump relay.

All of your symtoms point to a clogged fuel filter. The filter is located underneath the car below the passenger's side door. It will have fuel lines connected at either end. You will need to depressurize the fuel system by either disconnecting the fuel relay or disconnecting the wiring harness for the fuel pump. The bolt is clamped on the frame so you will need to unbolt the mounting bolts. Then you will rotate the fuel filter our and uscrew from the fuel lines.
