    fuel pump runs constantly

    well, I searched and found an old thread about this. Replied to it but I see its in the lounge and I didn't get any response there soI thought I'd post it here- I guess this would be the right spot?

    My fuel pump runs non stop until I disconnect the battery. What I learned on the old thread was to try the fuel pump relay. I tried switching it with the A/C relay beside it, no help, I tried unplugging it completely, no help. I barely got the oil pressure switch unplugged, no change. And I tried pulling fuses. I tried all of that and it was still running. Not real sure if I ever pulled the right fuse or not I didn't take em all out, pulled ecms, ign, etc. Do any of the fuses affect it anyway?

    The only thing left I didn't get a chance to look at yet is to see if it has a racetronix or similar relay under the truck. Its been raining for 4 days here so it was nice and messy out. today is dry so I'm gonna look for it soon as I get home if not before.

    by the way, this is my daily driver for now so its a pain, good thing there's a quick disconnect on the battery though.

    anybody got any ideas what else to look for?

    Re: fuel pump runs constantly

    I would have checked for that harness first thing. I have had this happen to me before and it was indeed the relay. Are you sure you puled the correct relays? I am not sure but see what happens if you disconnect the ECM. As far as I know, the ECM has no power when the key is off. But I suppose it could be possible that if something were wrong somewhere it it could somehow get power to the FP relay. This happened to me when my ECM was not grounded. Good luck.

    Question Re: fuel pump runs constantly

    Sean, did you just unplug relays or did you check for voltage at the normal fp relay? It sounds to me like some one has rewired your fuel pump and hidden the wire/relay somewhere.

    I just unplugged relays, I'll be looking for the hidden one this evening and see what I find.

    Re: fuel pump runs constantly

    found it!! it was an extra relay added in the rear. 2 minute fix once I found it. I'm glad I keep one of those extras in the truck all the time. I've had to replace them before for the fan and water pump so I've learned. And I've replenished the spare already too.

    Thanks for the help.
