Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question.
Ask Your Own Jeep Question
There are several possible causes and several things to check to illuminate and or to start narrowing the root cause down.
Ask Your Own Jeep Question
I would recommend to check for power going to the fuel pump while cranking the engine over. The computer should ground or activate the fuel pump relay for one second with the key turned on and then constantly as the engine is cranking over.
Ask Your Own Jeep Question
If there is power to the fuel pump while cranking then check to ensure that the ground supply to the fuel pump connector is good.
Ask Your Own Jeep Question
If there's no power to the fuel pump then we need to back up and check the inputs to the fuel pump relay. While cranking there should be two powers and one ground. Again the ground comes from the computer. There should be a main power supply going into the fuel pump relay and then a secondary power supply going into the fuel pump relay most likely from the ignition switch. If the fuel pump relay is not activating then we need to check the inputs. If the fuel pump relay is activating all cranking then we need to double check power back at the fuel pump or cranking.

what pin would that be on the relay 86?
With Key off 86 is grounded or has no power. Key in Run it has power. 30 is power all the time.
Key in Run i have power also at 85 but it doesnt appear to be getting power tio 87
Give me a bit. I will pull a diagram for you and let you know. Driving now. Will be home in 20 minutes.

in the power distribution box the green/white is coming off 87. the harness to the pump has a green white im not sure if it goes through the PCM first however out of the Distribution box if I jump the 30-87 ive got 12 volts coming out of the GR/WH but at the pump I dont have enough power to get a voltage reading. but i can see enough power to light my led.

Sorry for the delay!

The red/light green wire going into the relay gets power with the key on.

The dark green/black wire going into the relay gets power all of the time.

The brown wire going into the relay is the ground from the PCM to activate the relay.
