Inspection Procedure 22: Fuel Pump System




OPERATION



  • The fuel pump drive power is supplied from engine control relay connector terminal to fuel pump relay (ETACS-ECU connector terminal F/PB) in the ETACS-ECU.
  • The battery voltage is applied by the ignition switch to the fuel pump relay coil (ETACS-ECU connector terminal IG1) in the ETACS-ECU. The engine-ECU connector terminal FP/R turns on the relay by turning ON the power transistor in the unit so as to conduct power to the fuel pump relay coil (via the ETACS-ECU connector terminal FP/R).
  • When the fuel pump relay is turned ON, the battery voltage will be supplied from the fuel pump relay (ETACS-ECU connector terminal F/P) to the fuel pump.

FUNCTION



  • When the ignition switch ON signal is inputted into the engine-ECU, the engine-ECU turns ON the fuel pump relay. This causes the battery voltage to be supplied to the fuel pump.

PROBABLE CAUSES



  • Failed fuel pump relay in the ETACS-ECU
  • Failed fuel pump
  • Open/short circuit or harness damage in fuel pump drive circuit, or loose connector contact.
  • Failed engine-ECU
