Question about 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan

2 Answers

2000 Dodge Grand Caravan is getting no fuel to the fuel rail. The fuse is good and the relay also appears to be good. I don't hear the pump come on when turning on the ignition. Since the pump is in a full tank, I would like to know if there is anyway to make sure it is the pump?

You can try hitting the tank with a soft hammer while someone cranks the engine, sometimes this will cause the pump to run. If i was to venture a guess you will need a fuel pump.

You are right on track, The fact that you did not hear the fuel pump come on is a very good indication the fuel pump needs to be changed.

Good JOB !

Good Luck

Two new fuel pumps in my 1996 grandcaravan. Still no fuel presure at rail. New fuel filter also. The regulator is built into the pump and the van runs on either.


Are you getting at least 12 volts to the harness on the pump and also is it grounded good? Have you checked the fuse for the fuel pump and the fuel pump relay? Is the ASD relay coming on when you turn the switch to run position? Several more things to check to solve your no start condition.

listen at your fuel tank to see if you can hear the fuel pump running
if it isn't check your fuses as well as your relay if these seem to be ok then it's probably the fuel pump

My car doesn't start but the battery is fine. The engine fuses are fine. There is no fuel going into the engine. What could the problem be? I already replaced the fuel pump. my car is 96 Dodge grand...


put a funnel in the gas nozzle have someone turn ignition on to almost start, but don't. You should hear pump running before you start your van if you don't hear the pump you know you have a defective pump if you hear the pump purchase a fuel filter try that if not possibly could the relay not sure where its at but could finds out for you.good luck

Running sluggish and now will not start. I don't


Hi:

I think you will find the FP relay under the hood in one of the two black power distribution boxes.

When you turn the ign key to run, you should hear the pump run for 3-5 seconds to prime the system, then stop. You might have someone lie down outside and see if they hear it.

Verify that relay and fuse for pump are good first, and then attaching a pressure gage to the fuel rail will confirm whether or not pump is working properly if at all.

Also, make sure that your battery is not the culprit before replacing the pump. Chrysler products are very sensitive to a flaky/dying battery.

Fuse box diagram for 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan. I am trying to .locate where the fuel pump relay is connected to the fuse box. To detach to replace fuel filter.


The panel or the housing normally lists the names of the items that are controlled by the fuses. If that doesnt work, disconnect the battery terminals and you are good to go

Dodge caravan turns over wont start all lights work


possible bad fuel pump. check fuel pump relay under hood. drivers side fuse panel. swap fuel pump relay with another identical relay to rule out possible bad relay. listen for whining sound back by fuel tank. the fuel pump is in the fuel tank. Another option....you can also check the pressure in the fuel rail, but be careful not to squirt gas in your eyes or face.

94 dodge grand caravan no fuel in fuel rail


Dear Ron, you have replaced fuel pump and fuel filter. You have checked the fuel pump relay. Still no fuel in rail. Try bypassing fuel relay with jumper from batt to fuel pump. If o/k then check computer for ground to relay. This system uses a relay that is operated by the computer that supplies a ground for the relay to operate. The wire color is green,16 gage. If the ground is not available then "no fuel" Check this with a test light. Key on and crank apply test light to ground wire and other end of light to ground. You should hear relay click and get fuel. If this checks out you will need to replace computer or get creative with rewiring the relay so it works without computer input. Good luck Moe

It would appear that the relay is located on the cross rail that runs across the front of the vehicle (in front of the radiator). I found out that it is riveted in place by a single rivet, so in order to replace mine, I will have to remove the rivet and use a self-tapping screw to secure a new one.
The fan relay is located in the fuse panel located under the hood beside the battery. It will be marked under the lid. Make sure you check the maxi fuse for the fan also.
