I changed fuel pump relay and crankshaft position senor. I still cannot get power to my fuel pump. And now my hold light is flashing. I have the EX model. Any help would be great. I am on a limited income. And cannot afford to take it to a shop. Thank you. Sincerely, Sandra McArdle

There is a main 15 amp fuse I would check first. Here is a guide to help you test the fuse and the engine and fuel pump wiring diagrams so you can see how the system works and the fuse location:

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what you find.

Yep, the fuse was blown. I cannot believe I did not check that before. Thanks!

Four wheel drive 115,000 miles.

The fuel pump was removed and tested and it works. Is there an in line or hidden fuse that may need replacing? The fuses in the two fuse boxes appear to be okay.

Check fuel pump relay for not shutting off and then check fuel pressure with a gauge auto parts rent it.

Four cylinder four wheel drive automatic.

I have replaced the fuel pump but the fuel pump is still not running. Is there a reset switch?

There is no reset switch. Test the fuel pump relay and check fuel pump fuse if okay test the main relay.

Fuel pump stopped working. Went and got new fuel pump, hooked it up, will not come on. Checked voltage going to fuel pump at the connector, voltage shows 11.74 volts on 1 terminal, 7.73 volts on another. So there is power to the pump, but pump will not come on. ( Bench tested new pump, it works fine)
