Customer Question

Hi, just changed a fuel pump in a ED Falcon.
Started up, idled fine, then relay under bonnet started making a noise and car shut down.
Waited a while, tried again, car runs for a few seconds, then relay starts making a noise,shuts down again.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I expect the engine controller is going down and that's why the relay is chattering. If the ECM is going down it could be an internal failure or a loss of power or ground.

Do you have a scan tool to see if the ECM loses communication when this happens?
