    u can try this take a volt meter .put the switch in the on position an see if you have current and see up to where you have current . you also can do this ,connect a wires to one of the wires that have current and connect or bypass to the fuel pump.but be careful ok.

There may be a 'kill' switch, check it and see if its ok.
Get a 'live' wire to the pump (by pass) and thn try to start it..if it does thn theres a problem to the wire for the pump from the ignition switch, you may have to trace it out and rectify.
Hope this helps!

Some bikes have a vacuum petcock. Whenever the bike started up the petcock opened itself up and whenever it shut down, the petcock shut down too. Check to see if the petcock is set to on. Check to see if the fuel line is hooked up. Check to see if you have a vacuum line, and if it's hooked up. Check to see if the gas tank were possible vacuum locking due to a clogged vent. Alternately haul off the carbs and clean them out. Check to see if the fuel filter is clogged. Also after cleaning the carb and refitting it you will need to add vacuum to that fitting. It is a safety devise to shut the fuel off to the carb. In case the rider forgets a small hand vacuum pump from harbor freight will do the job just fine

My 02 jeep liberty isn't getting power to the fuel pump as well as my fuel Gauge doesn't work with the key o. Haven't been able to get it started in week now??? What could this be???????

Did you check all the fuses? Sounds like you have no power to the fuel pump if you worked on it recently, make sure there is no ground wire unhooked. Any ground wire could cause this problem. Locate the fuel pump relay. Switch it with a known good relay.

Microbus 2.3i four speed fuel pump not getting power

The click you hear is probably the fuel pump relay. See if you can locate it by sound. Possibly, the power feed for the pump may not be good at the relay. Pull the relay out and check for a power signal at one of the terminals that the relay plugs into. It should be a hot- at-all-times signal, so the key does not need to be on. The power feed will come from a maxi fuse in the power distribution box, or from a fusible link just off the battery. If the power is good, try another relay. If still no pump, check the wire from the relay to the pump for a short-a broken line. If wire is good, check the ground for the fuel pump.
Go back to your checking for power at the pump: just possibly, you missed the signal with the key on, because with key on the pump is only supposed to turn on for about 2 seconds (to pressurize the lines) and then shut off until the engine is cranked or running. Try testing for power again at the tank with the key held in start-should be a steady signal then, as long as the engine is cranking over. If still nothing, back to the relay. If you now have a signal for the pump when cranking engine, it must be the fuel pump ground.

There should be a fuelpump relay in the powerbox. The points inside are probably burnt or corroded. Try Autozone or Oreillys for the relay. They may have a diagram or a book for your model car. If not look underthe powerboxes for a matching relay.

I replaced fuel pump on a 2000 Silverado a week ago and it works till now. WHen key is on there is no power going to the fuel pump. Also the wire has light dirtyness to it. I had a extra power source and...

i think you answered your own question on if its the pump itself. if you had an extra power source hooked up and it worked then that tells you that is good.. i would try replacing the battery (whether its the problem or not it needs a new one to run anyway.) Think Logically. when you turn that key not only is the fuel pump looking for power. so is the starter the ignition control module. dash lights Daytime running lights if your truck has them and umpteen sensors are begging for power too. someone is the low man on the totem pole and with the fuel pump being the farthest away i would guess thats it.

Electricity is lazy. it takes the shortest path to ground. If it can go through this sensor to get to ground easier than running through the fuel pump then its going to.

one thing that might work (i haven't tried this i just spun this idea off the top of my head) is hook your truck up like your going to jump start it and try to start it and see if that second battery gives it that little extra umph to start.

No fuel pressure

Sounds like a bad fuel filter, or fuel pressure regulator. If there is no pressure to the rail, the fuel filter is either clogged, or the fuel line is broken or kinked somewhere between the fuel pump and fuel rail.

1cant figure out why i only get power to the fuel pump when i run a hard wire from the battery to the relay i have tested the relays and they are ok

Did you see if the inertia switch was triggered. The emergency fuel pump cutoff switch, also known as the inertia switch, cuts power to the fuel pump in the event of an accident - even a slow speed one - any sudden "jolt" can trigger the switch. 

The switch is located inside the jack storage compartment found at the right rear of the vehicle. Remove the cover and it is behind the thin "foam" covering inside the compartment towards the rear of the vehicle. 

It has a red button on the top of the switch, make sure the button is fully depressed. If it is and the vehicle still won't start check fuel pressure at the rail (there is a port on the rail which is under the hood on the engine) with a fuel pressure gauge. If the pressure is ok (about 30 psi) the problem is most likely not fuel system related. 

Good luck and hope this helps.
