Customer Question
Here...troubleshooting a starting issue...

Here...troubleshooting a starting issue with a 2005 Escape manual tranny. Put new fuel pump in and it started for 20 sec, now won't start again. Don't here the pump running when key is turned on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

New purchase with 116,000 miles on it. Ran very well for 2 wks and then intermittent starting, cranks ok, but won't start. Last time before towing home, I was able to get it to run but with minimal performance.

Ok...just removed the neg bat terminal and went out and cleaned a neg terminal on the firewall. Reconnected the neg terminal, and there was a small spark when I connected the neg terminal, tried to start and the motor fired once but did not start. Oh also reset the devise on the passenger side, an impact switch? That is where I am now.

And did you check for power to the fuel pump?

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Not yet. Trace the pump el. circuit from pump to origin. All the censors. And where is the engine to fame ground located? Tx
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I know the connection is valid, however, not reliable, yet. Might be another sensor failure. Just think'n
Transmission Mechanic: AMEDEE, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes it is very likely to be a sensor failure. Sensor module wiring issue connection issue or Anything else. That is why we need to check for power at the pump
