    New Fuel Pump Relay in Hamilton

    What is the fuel pump relay?

    Fuel pump relay Hamilton

    In basically any car with an internal combustion engine, a fuel pump is used to control the flow of fuel to the engine. The fuel pump is most often connected to a small electrical component called the fuel pump relay.

    The fuel pump relay is usually located near the fuse box or engine bay. It operates by switching on and off to control the amount of power sent to the fuel pump. When the relay is on, the fuel pump will work. When the relay is off, no power will be supplied to the pump and it will not work. The fuel pump relay is controlled by the engine control module, which sends an electrical signal to the relay when it detects that more fuel is needed.

    Problems with the fuel pump relay can affect your fuel pump’s ability to send fuel to the engine, affecting your car’s driveability and fuel burning conditions.

    On many cars you may hear the fuel pump turn on for a second  or more when the key is turned to the on position (before cranking). This is called fuel pump priming, and is designed to raise the fuel pressure in the fuel line, ready for the engine to start.

     

    Symptoms of a faulty car fuel pump relay:

    Stalling engine – If the car’s fuel pump relay stops working while you are driving, it will cut off power to the fuel pump. This usually results in the engine stalling.

    Engine not starting at all – A faulty car electric fuel pump relay can prevent the car engine from starting. This is due to no fuel being able to reach the engine upon ignition.

    Loss of engine power while driving – A faulty car fuel pump relay can lead to the electric  fuel pump behaving incorrectly and not supplying the right amount of fuel. This usually leads to decreased acceleration and engine power.
