Hey Chad, I have a ‘14...
Hey Chad,
I have a ‘14 Taurus; 2.0 Ecoboost, 83000
The car shut off on my wife, restarted then died. My OBD II tool pulled down P00C6 and P0627 so I began looking at the fuel system. I have since discovered that I have direct injection which means a High Pressure fuel pump on the motor and a fuel delivery pump in the tank. I have not been able to locate a fuel filter so I am guessing that it is part of the fuel delivery pump. I am also aware that this system uses a fuel pump control module. Thanks to a previous post, I have finally located It behind the rear passenger seat.
I watched a video on determining whether it is that module or the fuel delivery pump. Unfortunately, I ran the battery down a bit trying to diagnose the issue. The instrument panel gave me a charging system error and I am currently trying to charge the battery.
The question I have is whether a battery issue might cause the initial symptoms. When I initially tried the charger, I found that it did not seem to be charging the battery very well. I did find some corrosion on the base of the terminal but the post and terminal surfaces seem okay. I have cleaned them and am trying the chareger again.

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

Were you able to bypass the driver module and see if it would run?

Not yet. I am charging the battery now.I don’t have a wiring diagram so I am not sure which wires are which.

OK that will be your next step. See attached diagram for bypass instructions. If it starts when bypassed the replace the module.

Thank you. Also if I can get the VIN number I would like to check for recalls. Some of these years had recalls on the module.
