question about fuelpump
« on: 20:18, Sun 07 October 2012 »
Hi,
My fuel pump doesnt work when i turn the ignition on, when i give it 12v true an external 12v suply it works(i just took out my engine due to a clutch problem wich i solved) Should the pump only work when i turn the key to start the engine? i think not... The car stands still for a long period, but i drove it until then, is it possible that the relais just gave in???
Some help here please :-)

Thanks already ;-)

The fuel pump should work when the flywheel turns.

If you think the relay might of failed you can temporarily check by removing the relay and bridging the connection. I forget which wires to bridge now but if you search on the forum it should be easy to find, it's a common fault.

Yes.

It's not actually inserted into the plastic block of relays though, it is clipped on the right hand side towards the back.

Bridge the yellow and white wire's this will give an ignition live or red and white will give a perm live feed.  (white wire is the pump feed wire)
