    94 XLT 4.0 tow package?
    My 94 ex has been sitting since october, Now im back around to it and I went to start it NOTHING! I couldnt hear the pump come on so i removed the pump and bench tested it and it works so i put it back in but i have it rigged to the battery with a switch for testing purposes So when I go again to start the truck with the fuel pump on nothing! I did mix around the relays but i dont know if that caused it. My battery is dead too and I am having to Jump start it just to crank it, I also just put new spark plugs in it back in december too. What could cause the fuel pump not to work, Its not the fprelay because I switched it and it still didnt work. and what could cause it not to fire? Much help please!!!!!! :(

    So your saying that bypassing the fuel pump relay would cause the truck not to work? and also where is the fuel pump ground?

    Sometimes a bad relay can be ID'd by tapping on it lightly. The bad relay's contacts stick, and tapping on them can jar them back to (temporary) working order.

    I've used a screwdriver handle in the past. Tap on it like you're knocking on a door.

    If it starts afterwards, you've confirmed the relay is bad, and can easily and inexpensively be replace.
