I have a 1996 ford escort, that recently broke down on me. I was driving and the positive terminal fell off my battery causing it to shake and sputter then stall and not restart. I discovered it was not getting any fuel to it when I spray starting fluid in it it starts. So here's what all I have done since. I replaced the fuel pump but it doesn't seem to be getting power to it because it still wont start. I wired the old one to my battery directly and the old pump came on, so I am guessing that something is disrupting the power to my pump, so I was wondering if I could just wire my new pump to a switch and turn it on and off manually when ever I drove it? Or what else could be causing it to not get power, I checked the fuses and the fuel reset and everything seems okay, I tested the relays under the driverside dash and they seem ok, I am confused and what else to do?
have the same problem?
