This truck is driving me nuts. I gave up with fixing the tank. Ordered a new tank, will have it next week. The fuel pumps are getting on my nerves. Without a manual it'* a slow process of asking on the F150 forum and figuring it out. So far, I have voltage threw the fusalbe link, that goes to the fuel pump relay. The relay seems to switch with the key and I pass battery voltage threw. I tested the inertia switch, it'* good, if not the relay wouldn't work. So far it seems everything works except what'* between the relay and the fuel pump. There'* a switch to choose the tank. I'm starting to think that'* it. Just need more time to test it. Fix one problem at a time.

I'm sure I will. I can fix a GM, but Ford is a bit of a unknown right now.

The tank selector switch is probably the demon Dan. Fought this with a buddy and his truck a few years ago.

I'm getting conflicting information from the F150 forum. One guy is telling me I need battery voltage going threw the inertia switch. I have 3.6v. That'* the voltage I would expect for closing a relay.

I have not bypassed it. But I tested the inertia switch and it seems to be working.

Well, after days of messing with the fuel system, and getting more and more confused. I keep getting advice stating different wire colors. I finally got hooked up with the guru. I posted up pictures of what I have and he says, that'* a 1991 relay and socket, and that explains why nothing seems right. He posted up a 1991 diagram and guess what, it all makes sense. Looks like I have only .04 volts going threw the relay. Looks like a bad fuel pump relay. Just great, all this over a stupid relay.
