Momentarily. Fell on its face after 5 seconds.

ok, so you still have a fuel issue. when you turn the key on can you hear the pump running for a few seconds?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No, only when I try to start it.

No problem
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
The only thing I can think of is is the pump isn’t getting power, whether from the relay or from the connection on the pump itself.

pull the c/opn relay. tell me how the prongs are numbered. 1,2,3,5 or 30,87,86,85

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

ok, do you have a voltmeter?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No. I’m going to call a mechanic out to tell me what it is.

its probably the circuit opening relay which is not serviceable and the entire fise box needs replaced, but without you having anything to test with, I cant say that for sure. if its the same mechanic who told you to replace the pump then I would recommend finding another mechanic

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Okay. How do I go about testing it?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
the Fuel pump was bad, even putting direct power to it, it still did not operate.

ok what about the new pump. did you put direct power to it?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Not yet, no.

ok, well right now that would be the easiest thing to do so we know we are working with a good pump. believe me, plenty of new bad parts are put in vehicles

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Just out of curiosity.. why would a bad relay not be serviceable and require to replace the entire fuse box? Is that just a manufacture thing?

yes, tats the way a lot of car are built today. there are certain relays that aren't serviceable. I don't have the reason why.
