Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

What model is the sel/2014?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
2014 Ford Flex SEL AWD

Most common cause is a failed fuel pump driver module located behind passenger side C pillar molding.

See attachment for location. There was a recall on some of these if you have the VIN number handy I can check it for you.

If you are satisfied with your answer, please take a moment to rate my service as you see fit. Experts are not compensated without a positive rating. Providing a rating does not close the question, you can reply or ask additional questions without incurring further charges.

What can I do

If you could get the module, I could give you the steps to replace it. The part number you need is AA8Z-9D370-B. Not sure if you could get one this late on A Sunday though. There is also a way to bypass the module but you would need to get the trim off to access the module connector and make up some jumper wires to bypass it.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

Once the module was disconnected, the jumpers would be installed in the positions in the attached diagram. The engine can be ran temporarily, the jumper wires should be at least 14 gauge wire or heavier.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
