Re: fuel pump relay problems

Your old relay works on your friend's car and it worked, but it wouldn't work in yours?
If it's constantly running with the new relay, I believe you need to rotate the relay 90* and try again.

Re: fuel pump relay problems

Yeah- sorry... I was just waking up when I typed that response. SOME aftermarket relays can rotate and often cause problems if they're not installed just right.

I don't know what to tell you. If your old relay works in your buddies car but not yours and the new relay keeps the pump active at all times... it sounds like you have a bad short somewhere in your wiring. I really don't know. Have a professional look into it. It won't be cheap, but it's pretty much your last bet, now.
