EF Falcon Fuel Pump

G'Day,

Trying to fix a mates car (EF Falcon)...............won't start. Good spark.

Looks like the fuel pump isn't working (can't hear it) and I'm not getting any voltage at the red terminal connecting to it with the ignition ON.

Where the heck do they hide the fuse and/or relay for this??

Thanks

Re: EF Falcon Fuel Pump

The computor lets pump prime then shuts it off after 5 or so seconds...So testing can be pita to do...You'll need two people to check while turning key on check wire..The relay is under, between battery / water header tank, it's normally green covered ...I guess you have checked fuses ?..If the inside light fuse has blown the fuel pump won't keep working...Part of the imobiliser, smart lock system...Yes you have to figure if its power supply or pump itself ???

Thanks ebxr8240.

Yeah, I stuck my head in the boot while he turned ingition on and to start and nothing heard. (ie: 5 sec prime). There wasn't 12V there either within 5 sec.

Interior light was working OK. I did check fuses, but there wasn't a separate fuel pump fuse, hence the confusion.

Thanks for the info on relay location. Bit hard to find these things without a manual.

He just got impatient and now the tow truck just picked him up!! So we'll see if he got charged $100 for a realy!!........or some other good story.

Cheers

Re: EF Falcon Fuel Pump

Well it cost him $30..........and it must have been the worlds most honest mechanic.

It was an electrical issue........a dodgy wire up near the front relay.
