Ford sierra won't start, ignition relay?

My car suddenly stopped when I was driving. Usually I can hear a "whistl" sound when I set the ignition on, Now I can't hear that but the starter run an engine turn but will not start.It's a mecanical fuelpump so it's not the noise from electr. I have put a new ignition coil in but that didn't help.

You need a wiring diagram before you start and get out your meter. How did you check out the relays? Remove them,power up the coils and read OHM's across all contacts or use the buzzer on the meter? You missed one The fact the solenoid is good doesn't mean the contacts inside aren't burnt and not applying current to the starter motor. We over look the easy stuff most of the time. Did you do a voltage drop test on the starter while trying to crank? A new solenoid may be all you need.

SOURCE: engine stalls at 30mph upon

Hello first of all


well i am sorry a mechanic cant figure this out its really sad. ok so your problem is your either one of two things but most likely the first one i list.

1. camshaft postion sensor
2. crankshaft postion sensor

Now that being said it most likely the camshaft sensor the reason i say that is when a crankshaft postion sensor is bad the car has very hard starts and most of the time no start issues. When a camshaft postion sensor is bad the car cuts off whil driving and can be hard to start up again.

So that being said they are both pretty cheap parts i would go ahead and replace them both and i would bet my 5 years as ford mechanic that solves your issue.

The crank postion sensor is located behind the harmonic balancer pully or right beside it here is a picture from autozone.com and description.

The crankshaft position sensor identifies position of the crankshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM).

  • When not replaced, vehicle could experience no- or hard start, long crank time, misfire, lack of power, excessive hydrocarbons in oil, spark plug fouling, catalytic converter failure, poor fuel economy, CEL/MIL illumination or intermittent shutdown.
  • Designed to meet or exceed OE specifications in form, fit and function.
  • Global coverage for import and/or domestic applications.

    The crankshaft postion sensor is 22.99 and the cam is 19.99 so 50.00 bucks and about hours time should have you up and running.

    PS if this helps please 4 thumbs up it helps me continue to help on here thanks

    Could try the crank sensor, that is where I would start. Next would be the timing & compression.

    My 95 sierra dies and won't start. no lights on dash then suddenly lights come on and truck will start. please help.


    first check the connections at the battery. make sure there is no corrosion between the cable end and the battery.

    When you say it wont start can you hear the starter cranking the engine over or is the vehicle completely dead?

    If its completely dead I would check for power to the ignition switch. if there is power than I would check for power out of the switch. If there is no power than possible the ignition switch is failing.

    I might be able to get you some wiring info if needed. just let me know.

    Wireing from fuel pump runs into car where


    A small but important part of your car's engine fuel delivery assembly, the fuel pump relay is an electrical component that controls the pump. Also known as a relay switch, this car part turns your fuel pump on and off when you start your vehicle and shut it off. Everytime you turn on your ignition, the relay switch lets the electrical current flow to the fuel pump. Once both the pump and your engine are running smoothly, the fuel pump relay automatically shuts off. The fuel pump will then be controlled by the oil pressure unit. In case your pump relay stops working, it's the oil pressure switch that will serve as a back-up power relay for the pump. Because the fuel pump relay is switched on everytime you turn on your ignition, you should hear a distinct sound (it could be like a whistling kettle or a blackboard being scraped) whenever you start your car. If you don't hear that distinct sound and your engine takes longer to crank up, you may have a problem with the relay switch. Fortunately, finding a compatible replacement relay for your vehicle is just a few clicks away at Auto Parts Warehouse. When you buy from our site, you can enjoy our free shipping services, low-price guarantee, and flexible payment options. So, if you need to replace your old relay switch for the fuel pump, buy one only from Auto Parts Warehouse!

    Vehicle will not start, normally when ignition is in on position there is a whining noise for a few seconds, I wait until the whining stops and then start the vehicle. Now, when ignition is on on position...


    Hi. The whining noise you hear is the fuel pump priming the fuel lines. If you don't hear the sound anymore then your fuel pump has stopped working. Check your fuses. Also look for a relay for the fuel pump. The relay will usually be in a large box under the hook that says fuse and relay panel or something similar. If the fuses and relay are working the the pump will probably need to be replaced.

    I Have a 94 cherokee country with a 56028297 ecu,it has no power at the grey wire at the ecu,it does flash sometimes and I can hear the relay work sometimes. I can bypass the fuel pump relay circuit and...


    If you hear relays clicking sometimes and the jeep won't start, at those times, is the check engine light illuminated on the dash, or not? If no check engine light is on the dash, at times when the jeep won't start, your ecu is in need of repairs. The ecu sends power to the ignition and fuel relays and when the ecu starts to malfunction, the relays usually start clicking.

    My fuel mileage drops 4 to 5 MPG when I just my climate control( heater or air conditioner) and I can hear a whistling while driving. I feel that I have a vacuum leak were should I start looking? Or what...


    First of all, I'd have to say some of this is weatherstripping. The whistling sound is usually the sign of air leaking majorly into the cab, unless you can hear a specific place, IE, from the floor, from the front, or the very back, in which case, check the transmission, engine, and differential/carrier gear, respectively. Check for a vacuum leak by taking a can of starting ether, and follow all hoses that go to intake. Spray ether along them all, and if the engine RPM suddenly revs up, you've found your leak.
