1990 Ford Bronco V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 182000 miles
I have a 1990 Bronco that will not start. Through checking everything out we have narrowed it down that it will not start because the fuel pump is not working. We checked everything else fuel filter, spark, distributor, etc. We dropped the gas tank, pulled out the fuel pump and tested it by putting the red and black wires to a battery. The pump turned right on and started working so no problem with the actual pump. Once its back in and we hook everything up nothing happens. When you turn the key to the on position (or accessory mode) nothing happens. You can't hear the pump turning on like usual. We took a circuit tester and multi-meter to the actual 4 prong plug that sends electrical to the fuel pump. The multi-meter says it has some electricity going through it but the Circuit tester never responds to it. My problem is I don't know if there is a problem with the 4 prong plug, The wiring to the plug, or the actual housing of the fuel pump that has the wires and float attached to it. My question is what else can I do for testing what the problem is? Can I plug a code scanner in? Would that device find a problem in the wiring? Any suggestions would help since I am completely stuck. Thank you
have the same problem?
