hello and can you give any more info on the vehicle?
is the check engine light on in the dash when the key is in the on position
It´s a 1996 Bentley Turbo R. Low milage and all services has been done.
ok how about the second question
I, not quite sure but realy I belive so because all the otrer indicatorlamps and clocks on the dash is working.
Coming to think of it, the lamp works!
need to make sure because the ecm controls the fuel pump and need to know if the if the light is not on then need to tackle the powers and grounds to the ecu
ok then do you have a 12 v test light?
the next thing is to check all fuses w/ the 12 v test light connect the aligator clip to a good ground and the tip go to each fuse and test each leg of the circuit of the fuse w/ the key on . the fuse has 2 slits that you can access the leg of the fuse to test. if you have 1 leg has power and the other not replace that fuse and continue. note some fuses may not have power on both legs (usually light circuits)
All fuses are checked by eye, and is found okay but the slits are not checked by testmeter.
What about the relay? I suppose the pump has a relay? How do I check that it works?
i'm trying to get the wiring diagram for the fuel pump circuit but not gotten yet and usually takes some time
I'm waiting. No problems.
Can I jump the fuelpumprelay?
yes that was the next thing to do on my list but i'm still having trouble in getting this diagram. apparently bentley is having site issues beyond my control
Is there any other general advice you can give me if the relay is found okay?
i hate to give you the wrong advice due to the fact that you have a zytec engine management system and the electronics are way different than motronic . i do not want to cause more headaches for you w/ wrong information
i do really appreciate your paitience in this but i will come through !
Thats okay! No problems.
