MY WON'T START

1993 Ford Probe

Hi, I own a 1993 Ford Probe GT. My brother was driving it when it all of a sudden just cut out and stopped moving. My dad and I have been working on it for about 4 days now trying to figure out why it won't start. It turns over but it doesn't really " fire". We have put a new module in it, externally because that was my dads initial thoughts that it burned up. We got a new battery because we had heard that if you don't have 12 volts to the injectors they won't properly work, he has gone through all the fuses and none are burned out, except the one for the interior electronics (lights, cd player, etc.), If you put a multimeter to it and then use the carpet as a ground he gets a reading. But now we have moved to the fuel pump and have already pushed the red button but that wasn't it, that was the first thing we tried. Anyways hopefully I have given you enough information to help me. I would love input to help me, I love this car and would very much like to have it on the road.

What motor do you have? Have you checked to see if you have spark? Most of thoes engines have a valve to check fuel pressure at the end of the fuel rail. Does the car have a timing belt? If so check it. The crank may be turning but the cam isn't. Let me know. 8) NOS

I own the same car and it happened to me just as I was getting on the freeway. I still haven't found the problem. I did some research online, everything was saying that it was the fuel pump relay which was 80 $ at napa. I didn't buy it plus I can't find it anywhere under the hood. The closest thing I found was a fuel pump " fuse" in the relay/fuse box under the hood (it was ok.) If you can help me out with the location of this thing. I will find a better price and try it.

I had a problem with my 93 Explorer where my engine would just die. It happened several times. It would start again after a few minutes. I don't remember all the particulars of what would work and what wouldn't work.

The problem was the electronic engine controls (EEC relay) relay went bad. I replaced the relay and I haven't had a problem sense.

The EEC relay is located in the engine compartment. There is a power distribution box which has several fuses and relays.

Try replacing the relay (about $5) and see if that works.
