96 GT no power to run fuel pump

I ran a auxillary wire to the pump today and the pump ran .... However the car kept cranking over but wouldnt fire up....so my question is what can shut down the fuel pump power....I have read about the ingnition sensor or ignition pulse ( PIP )

Your knowledge is appreciated

Walter

Re: 96 GT no power to run fuel pump

If you turn the key to run without the wire connected, do you hear the pump run for a few seconds? Have you checked for spark when cranking? What engine is it?

Re: 96 GT no power to run fuel pump

Is it the 3.8 or the 4.6?

Re: 96 GT no power to run fuel pump

There should be power at the dark green/yellow wire coming out of the relay box "for a few seconds" when the key is turned to on. The PCM grounds the light blue/oange wire for a few seconds at first key to run and when cranking, will ground it to keep the pump running. Is it the 3.8 or the 4.6?

Re: 96 GT no power to run fuel pump

Here's the diagram for the pump. Sometimes the crank sensor will cause the PCM to not fire up the pump but if it doesn't run the few seconds when the key is first turned on, that wouldn't be the cause.

Re: 96 GT no power to run fuel pump

That wire should have 12v for a few seconds when the key is first turned on. When the engine is cranking, it should also have 12v.
