fuel pump relay

  1. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey looking for some good ideas here. Two weeks ago went out to start car, and it would start and only idle at 300 RPM, and wouldn't accelerate. Don't have a scanner yet, so I replaced the Fuel Pump (old pump was original), and then replaced the Fuel Filter (original filter), then tried to...
  2. General BMW Questions
    My 2011 BMW 550i will crank but will not start. I was in my car idling for 5 minutes and the car started to sputter then died. The fuel pump was replaced 6 months prior due to a recall. I have tested the coil packs and they seem to be ok and tested the fuel pump relay as well which tested ok. I...

    Ok, just purchased my first BMW last month - 2011 328i xDrive sedan, 103k miles. Love it so far. Or at least until yesterday. Car died while driving and then wouldn't start. Had it towed to the nearest BMW dealer. They called me today and said the problem was the fuel pump relay. But the...

    I bought an E36 about a month ago and have only put about 30 miles on it as it needed some work when bought. i did the work needed (injectors, Valve cover gasket, oil change and spark plugs) and it has been running pretty good, besides the cel not turning off yet. The other day, my friend went...

    I noticed the check engine light come on while I was driving to work. I parked and left the car until noon. When I tried to start it, it cranked but did not fire. I noticed there was no noise from the fuel pump and next checked the shrader valve.... no fuel. The fuel pump fuse was good so I...

    I have problem with my cabrio BMW 318i (1994). After a long stand I have jammed fuel pump (that's obvious), but even more, I have no power in fuel pump power cable. I measured the cable and is OK (manually attach +12v on fuse 18 and check it at the fuel pump plug) So I replaced DME and fuel pump...

    Hey guys. I have a 1987 325ES w/ manual transmission and lots of miles. On Christmas eve of last year I was driving down the freeway at about 70 mph when the engine stumbled twice in about 2 minutes. Then it completely lost power. I pulled over and parked on the side of the freeway and tried to...

    I've used this forum to fix several problems over the years and it has been indispensable. Its saved me hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. I am very appreciative of the experts and wannabes here that provide their expertise and issues/resolution. I posted my first post today in appreciation...

    Hiya Folks, Been a member here for a number of years, but finally (and unfortunately) have the opportunity to share a frustrating experience with you, the Bimmerfest community... Friday last (3/6), I bought a tank of gas at Sunoco (avoid!) on the NE corner of Hwy 20 & Sullivan in Madison, AL...
  10. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Where is the Fuel pump relay for a 2004 530i. I have a no start condition with no pressure in my fuel rail. I was trying to test my secondary air pump by jumping pins #30 and #87 on the salmon relay in the box under the passenger side cabin filter. My car won't start after doing this. I'm...

    Vehicle: 1992 318i 216k miles w/ aftermarket security system and sound system with CD changer and sub-woofer Problem Occurs: Drove to a Friend's place to replace a tie rod end. Along this trip, after sitting for about a week, the car had random power loss at steady low throttle in high gear...
  12. E24 (1976 - 1989)
    I recently acquired a1982 633 CSi that is 95 percent original with 95K miles. The only major repair that I am aware of is a clutch cylinder replacement about 1K ago. I drove the car from So Cal to Nor Cal a few days ago and it seemed to run fine until the third fill up when it would not start...
  13. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hi guys, I've ran into some pretty strange electrical issues these past few days that don't seem to make any sense. Initially, my car wouldn't start, and after checking my fuses I took a multimeter and tested the fuel pump to see if there was power being supplied to the 4/5 connectors. I...

    Ok gentleman, I need some help with my 2002 BMW 540 220,000 rounds. First I need to give you some background of where this problem began. I parked the car outside, in the country (plenty of mice) for two days, it also rained during this time. When I returned to pick up car, I had lighting...
  15. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Since the relays in my 1989 325i appear to be factory originals, I want to begin replacing them over time as a preventive measure. Starting with the fuel pump relay, I found that the various parts houses list up to 3 different fuel pump relays. Do I simply buy the one with prongs that match...
  16. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I have read many of the threads already, but am stumped. Car will not start. Used starter spray to verify it was not spark related and it briefly started. My fuse #54 is good. I swapped the light green relay in the sealed box under the hood on the driver side near the fire wall with the dark...
  17. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I haven't found the anything that says where the fuel pump relay is and I have NO IDEA where to find it because I'm pretty sure its not in the fuse box under the hood. :dunno: i need help pleez
  18. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    I've checked the relays and they are fine. I even swapped the horn relay with the fuel pump relay... The horn works with both so that suggests me that the relay is fine. So I switched the fuel pump and it worked! It was the first time I heard the engine running in over a month! Then the...
  19. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Can anyone tell me the location of the fuel relay for my 1995 318 ic (convert) E36, please? I believe it is a light green (4-prong) one in the 1st position-- the far left one among the 3 separate relays that are next to fuse box & other relays. even my BMW dealer could not verify locaiton, only...
  20. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My 2004 330xi doesn't start on a cold start on a cold day. I have to keep putting the key in the on position and turn it off and back on until I hear the fuel pump kick on. Once I on the way out, loose wire, or my though is the fuel pump relay? Strange that it only does this when it's very cold...
