Default Fuel pump isn't turning on

Trying to turn on my Ranger but my fuel pump ain't turning on.

Found a pink wire that is unhooked and it runs from a connector with a oranger wire that goes to a relay.

I can't find the wire where the pink goes too.

Any ideas?

Here are some pictures


The pink wire and orange wire I am holding was the ones I was talking about. The oranger wire goes to the thing in the next picture but I have no idea where the pink wire goes. Both the pink and oranger wire run back to a connector though together.




The orange wire hooks up to this, there are 4 wires.






Anyone know where the pink wire goes?


Thanks

Didn't know which one people would reply with first.
Thus, is why I posted it in Electrical and this forum.

Well I have no idea what those are pictures of since there is no description or reference. But none of it looks like it has anything to do with the fuel pump.

The fuel pump has a fuse and a relay in the underhood power distribution box. Check both before you try to trace random unknown wires.

The fuse is fine.

The ECM in the passenger kickpanel is ok.

This is the relay. This pink wire like I said comes to a connector with an orange blueish wire and the orange blueish wire comes to this relay I have a picture of.

No, that isn't the fuel pump relay. It is in the power distro box under the hood. I don't know what relay and wire bundle you're holding in your hand is since you haven't told us where it is, what it goes to, or why you think it is related. Based on the zip ties and tape, I'd say it isn't factory.

Its the fuel pump relay. I have it flipped around to show the wires. The tape and zip tie is on it to hold it on a hanger. It's on the right side of the engine near the starter relay and battery.

The blueish orange wire used to go to the fuel inertia switch I think but someone cut it and straight wired it.

Oh this an '85? For some reason I thought this was a 90's truck.

Yes, it's an 85 which is the only year I've heard with 2 fuel pumps (high pressure/lo pressure pumps).


The fuel cutoff have been deleted and the wires have been taped together...yes not DOT approved BUT I don't care at the moment.

Default Re: Fuel pump isn't turning on

traced my hot wire for my fuel pump and hooked it up to my positive on my battery and it turned on.

Well I left it on my positive while I tried to turn over the truck (but my battery was dieing) to see if it would start up...

Anyways, I got out to undo the wire then and something was smoking. So I guess it was a wire I let get to hot.

At least I know the fuel pump works though.

So I got that out of the way. Must be something else.
