    Tennis Fuel Problem

    Update 3 I have since found out that the black relay is the cold start relay, so I am no further advanced in solving the problem, however some further information which hopefully may jog someone's memory in helping me solve the problem. A helpful person who had one of the black relays for sale informed me that it was the cold start relay and he was under the impression that the fuel pump relay was a purple one but when I looked under the dash again in addition to the black cold start relay I could only see a yellow relay and a green relay. According to the Ford Escort Owners Handbook the relay is located in position "V" in the main fuse box in the engine bay however this position is vacant in the Tennis Cabrio, having owned the car since virtually new I am confident that there was never one in this position. Has anyone had to change their fuel pump relay if so where did you find it and which one is it? Or any info would be helpful. Once again thanks in advance. Steve - 1989 Escort Cabrio Tennis

    Update 2 I have removed the black relay and it is marked with the following no. 86 AB 12B 528-AA Does anyone know if this is the correct relay and is there anyway of testing it. Again thanks in advance Steve - 1989 Escort Cabrio Tennis

    Tennis Fuel Problem

    Hi, An Update I have put the car on a ramp and with the aid of a mirror I can see a yellow relay and a green relay both about an inch square and a larger black box which I guess is also a relay with a black wire, 2 green wires and 2 brown wires going into it. Any info would be appreciated especially a part number would be great. Again thanks in advance Steve - 1989 Escort Cabrio Tennis

    Tennis Fuel Problem

    Hi, I have replaced the fuel pump and it works when connected directly to a power supply but totally dead when connected to the original wiring, I have checked with a meter at the contacts and it is also dead. Prior to replacing the pump I tested the electrics at the connection plug and there was power but the pump itself did not work hence the reason for replacing it, now there is no power to it. I read a few years ago about a separate pump relay located in the cockpit steering wheel area, I have looked and had a feel around but have come across nothing. Am I wrong in my thoughts or does anyone have a more accurate location for it? I have had a problem when searching for a replacement relay, does anyone know the correct part number, or any info please? Thanks in advance Steve - 1989 Escort Cabrio Tennis
