Hello,
My fuel pump was not engaging during start up. 12v all the way to relay (30contact), 6.3v relay(87contact) and 5.2v at pump . I powered the pump directly from the battery and it works. The relay is also good, I took the same jumper I use from the pump to the battery and put it behind the relay at (87contact) and pump worked find. My question is, is it ok to bypass the fuel pump prime connector(use for factory scans) and the electronic engine control module? Both of these devices are after the relay on the same wire pk/bk leading to the pump.

Thanks

Hello,
I tried, still not getting 12v after the relay. The pk/bk wire has resistance somewhere in the wiring after the relay(difficult to find without pulling the dash and carpet) I ran a new wire from the pump to the relay at 87(connector), cleared my fuel lines of air and the car runs great. Just afraid this might cause a future problem, because I bypassed the fuel pump prime connector and electronic engine control module. These two devices come after the relay on the pk/bk wire, on the wiring diagram.

Thanks

Fuse T and fuse no. 13 powers the EEC power relay from there it goes to the computer KAPWR circuit

What color wire is at No. 87

Check power at the fuel pump cut off switch red wire

Unable to read EWD below give me your email addy and I'll send it thru there.

Good morning,
Pk/Bk is the color of the wire coming out of contact 87 on the fuel pump relay.

The pump cut off switch has power at red wire, 12.4v key on.

No, I can not see the diagram you sent. I have to have 10 posted in order to PM you.

I don't think the Pk/Bk wire powers the EEC, it may just sent a signal. Car still runs great and the fuel mileage has increased back to normal. (Normal fuel mileage per tank is around 400miles or more on the display, before I was just getting 310mile per tank.)

Thanks

When you turn key On-Do you have power at the red and yellow wire on the fuel pump relay socket-If not you have an open with this wire between the relay and inertia fuel cut switch or the inertia switch itself-You said you have power on the red wire at the inertia switch if so and the fuel pump relay is good the fuel pump should come on.

The pink and black wire doesn't power the EEC relay. It is the wire that powers the fuel pump when fuel pump relay is energized

This forum has saved me a lot of time and money. If I would have started here, this would have been a $20 to $30 fix, instead of a $150.00:( Well lesson learned, now I know how to change a fuel pump:) Thanks!

Theres no access panel on this vehicle. You'll also need a fuel tank sender wrench to remove the pump.

Maybe you need to reset inertia switch, or that switch is faulty? At the inertia switch, Dark green wire with yellow tracer goes hot/voltage when fuel pump relay is energized. The pink wire with blue tracer should be hot, also. That is voltage from inertia switch to pump. note diagram.

Here is a guide to help you see where you loose power and check the PCM power relay that is where the fuel pump gets it power from.

Check out the diagrams (Below)

Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.

With key on we have 12 volts at inertia switch for about 2 seconds, then voltage goes to 3.68 volts. During this check we still have no voltage at all at the pump itself, so I replaced the PCM relay and the fuel pump started working. The car runs great! Thanks :)
