Question Fuel pump relay location 94 GT

Ok ... what's the secret?

I've got a problem with my Escort GT pumping fuel to the engine. I've checked the fuel pump by by-passing the relay and using a jumper in the diagnostic port and it pumps fuel like crazy. I think its the relay, but I've looked all over the car and can't find it. Any one know where I can find the blankety thing?

Do you have the owners manual or go to the library and get a chilton or haynes book for you car and year. Maybe one of these will help. I have a 92 and I think mine is in the trunk.

Im not sure what you mean by the relay. The sending unit is in the tank. You can remove it from outside. The inertia switch is in the trunk.

I've looked in manual, chiltons and even ordered the wiring diagram for the car from Helm (they supply most of the shop and repair manuals for Ford, GM and such). Theres a relay that closes when the ignition is turned on and it provides power to the fuel pump. That's the little begger I'm trying to find. Thanks for the help guys.

What is it specifically called in the Chiltons manual?

The relay switch should be behind the left or right panel inside the trunk or storage compartment. I just got that question the other day and I should her it's right there. You might have to use a flat-head screwdriver or a hammer.

fuel inertia swithch

on my 91 the fuel inertia switch is located on the rear of the passenger side rear wheel well in the trunk. This "is" a relay that will break the curcuit when jarred as in an accident. on my car there is a red reset button.

Good luck

On my 88 there's a fuel cut-off switch in the driver's side rear interior panel (for when there's a collision).
Under the dash on the driver's side is the Relay. It's not marked so I bought one for $13 and matched it up.
I have also heard that some fuel pump relays are located under the hood
There is also a circuit breaker for the pump in the fuse panel

Re: Fuel pump relay location 94 GT

I cant seem to find exactly where mine is either.

not in the trunk as that is the inertia swich... have experienced this one popping unfortunately and tested it this occassion to rule it out right away.

My escort wagon is a 94. The car just 'shut off' sorta speak while heading out of town. I have the day off so I looked her over real good and found that there was no fuel making to the injectors (no preasure in the line). I listened closely for the fuel pump when turning the car on but not cranking. I hear a couplerelays closing then opening but no fuel pump buzz. Ok figue its the fuel pump so I took it out according to the instructions in the Chilton manual.

I test the unit... it WORKS! damn! well at least I saved myself that expence!

So next... check Chilton for fuel presure switch. I got confused at this point between a fuel presure regulator and a switch... well that search got me all annoyed. By the way there is NO fuel presure switch in a 94 escort *sigh*

At thi point I got all mad and dug up a long wire, connected it directly to the battery and to the fuel pump (yes I did the research to know which wires, didnt want a fire lol) Anyway this was only done as a last effor to get my car out of the visitors spot and into my parking garage spot (uphill) to save myself a nice ticket and possibly a tow.

In any event I looked up the only other thing it can be other than the dredded puter, and that being the relay. Problem is Chilton says there is one but does not say anywhere, where the sucker is. I hear a couple under the dash, sounds like the passenger side of the center console.

Anyone know where exactly befor I start ripping the dash all appart (I hate working under the dash, it's the worst place to work on a car!)

Hope ya enjoyed my ramblings and know the answer!
