Ford explorer eec relay

Before i changed my fuel pump. I started my explorer and it ran for 4 seconds then turned off. My 1st instinct was the fuel pump. I changed the pump, and it still didn't star. Checked the fuses under the hood and saw that the eec relay fuse was blown. I tried different fuses and the same happened. What do i do

Try a new relay first. This may not be good news if that does not work. If you can find the EEC (computer) and unplug it, then replace the fuse-if it blows you have another cheaper part on the circuit thats bad.
If the fuse does not blow, then the EEC must be shorted.
If you have to replace the EEC you may find a kindly dealer with a cash-for-clunker sitting there to violate. Salvage yards have them, Ebay sells them. I have seen them at swap meets for $20. They are a high price part even rebuilt at Dealers or autoparts stores.

96 windstar eec wiring scematic

Find another relay with an identical part number(maybe the fuel pump relay)& swap it in place of the suspect EEC relay.See if the buzzing quits.If it does,the EEC relay is bad.There might be a ac WOT cutout relay or fan relay with an identical part number that you can use instead of the fuel pump relay.The fuel pump relay & EEC relay will both have to be in place in order for the engine to start.A relay should click when you turn the key on,but it shouldn't make a buzzing noise.BTW-the EEC relay is energized when you turn the key on and then it supplies ignition on power to the computer,injectors,solenoids and fuel pump relay.Therefore, if the EEC relay is defective, these components are Not going to work.If you don't hear the fuel pump prime when the key is first turned on,that's a sign the EEC relay is bad.One of the injector wires should have battery voltage, if the EEC relay is powering up.If your vehicle doesn't have a matching relay to the EEC relay(except for the fuel pump relay)just pull the FP relay out and slide it into place of the suspect EEC relay for testing purposes.If the buzzing noise stops,then replace the relay because there's no way to test if the car will start without having both relays in place.

Cold start problem on 94 ford explorer

There is a "cold start routine" circuit which is activated by one of the temperature switches on the engine. This setting increases the fuel to a rich mix and sets the timing for a cold start. Some vehicles have dual temperature sensors with one working the dash gauge and the second working the "cold start routine".

Fuel pump Relay, EEC Relay, you may be turning the Ignition switch off and on until the contact points inside these Relays actually catch. You may have no fuel or no spark until the contact points inside grip.

Check your fuel pump pressure at the test port to see if you have pressure. Autozone and other parts stores have tool loaner programs with refundable deposits.

Please comment on my info.

95 taurus starts runs for 1-2 seconds then dies changed fuel filter 39 psi on fuel rail can make it run longer by cycling ign.switch from off to run really fast but leave it in run and dies after couple...

I would check the EEC relay, and the fuel pump relay too. But it sounds like the ignition module is loosing power, or the pump is not getting power after the engine starts.
The computer must see oil pressure or RPM to power the pump relay after the engine starts.

My 89 ford ranger will some times stall and not start back.You can turn key but fuel pump doesn't start but next day it may run fine

I would suspect a bad eec relay. These used to go out commonly, and the eec relay is what powers up the fuel pump relay.

EEC relay fuse keeps blowing id put a new fuse in the truck it would run for about 10 seconds then blow the fuse again.

There are 3 relays mounted below the fuse box .
The green I believe is fuel pump relay and the brown is EEC. The third relay is for the A/C WOT.
It is possible the wiring is shorted, check there, it is also possible you have a bad fuel pump.
Please let me know what you find.
