Some GM products also incorporate the oil sender switch into that circuit for fuel pump, so that in case of an accident, engine shuts off, oil pressure drops, in turn, shuts off power to fuel pump. May be worth a look at what your getting for oil pressure, as well as checking switch/sender.

Hello
You say you checked the ignition switch, you are 100% sure that isn't the problem? this year and indeed most 1990's Honda"s has a problem with the electrical contacts in the ignition starter switch, the symptom is the car will run until the key is released to the run position or the engine just stalls for no reason, the switch is very easy to replace and I bet is your problem, just remove the sterring column covers, they are a **** shell cover the screws are recessed on the bottom of the cover, Honda doesn't sell the switch seperately from the key cylinder buy it is sold in the after market, here is a price and picture of the part.

It could be that you have picked up a batch of dirty fuel that has clogged the gauze input filter that is part ot the fuel pump inside the fuel tank.

1988 ford f150 won't stay running


I You can get free fusebox layouts at Autozone.com by registering your vehicle.

Try changing the fuel filter. May be too much resistence is causing the fuelpumps to trip their limit switches.

If you have not used a scanner, someone may have one for this old style system. An bad O2 sensor can adjust the fuel mix too lean to run.

If you have a fuelpressure regulator, it may only cycle once for starting and then fail to trigger the fuelpump a second time to restart the fuelpump.

Check with FordF150blog.com or some of the 4x4 truck offroad sites for some pretty good info about problems like yours in the Backwoods and how to fix them.

I hope my solution is helpful.

2000 gmc jimmy starts in AM fine won't start after sitting in sun all day


Can you jumper the fuel pump and make it start and continue to run ?
Have you checked to see if you are getting spark when it won't start ?
Could be a relay or coil, ignition module, or other component.

Hey guys, my caravan started this morning then shut off and won't start again. Heres what I did so far checked fuel pump fuse good, fuel pump relay good swapped with other. Removed neg battery cab


If you have voltage at the fuse and relay, and at the pump, but no fuel pressure, I would say the pump has died or the tank is empty.
Have you checked for voltage at the pump yet ?

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!

Make sure the fuel pump is kicking on it won't hurt to check the relay but I have never seen one bad yet it could be the plug on the plug on the end of the wires that plugs on the pump this run hot and it burns the ends alot several fuel pumps are replaced because of this make sure you have power at the pump if you can't hear it run it will only stay powered for a few seconds and then kick off. so you might need someone to turn it on while someone checks the power.

I have a 2001 vw beetle 5 speed and i can't seem to locate the Fuel Pump Relay. My car is truning over but won't start, spraying starter fluid in the engine and it starts for a moment but won't...


  • Hi, I can help.

  • The fuel pump relay is 4th over on the very bottom row of the relay panel under the hood. This can be the pump too. The pump holds pressure and when the back pressure switch fails the car won't start. Or the pump could just be out period. The fuel filter can do this too.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

We have a 1993 jeep grand cherokee laredo it has and been running great until this weekend. Here's how it started, we where going down the road and then out of know where after driving around all day...


There is a relay box under the hood. See if the fuel pump relay is marked there and swap it with the A/C or horn relay. If this works to run the pump, buy a new relay. If not, please get back to me for troubleshooting procedures.
