Symptoms of a bad TIPM fuel relay:
The main symptoms of a bad fuel relay is either the vehicle is not getting fuel causing it to not start, or the fuel pump will stay on causing the battery to drain. When the relay starts to fail, you may be able to get it running again after trying to start it multiple times. The relay usually deteriorates rapidly from that point until the vehicle will not start. If the pump is stuck on, you will hear the buzzing of the fuel pump coming from the rear of the vehicle where the fuel pump is located. In this case, the pump will remain on until battery is drained. Below are similar complaints we have heard:
- My van seems possessed, the wipers go on and off randomly, my headlights turn on and off randomly.
- At first it took a few tries to get it started, now it does’nt start at all.
- It tries to turn over but takes about 15 minutes in order to do so.
- The vehicle shut off while driving and took multiple tries to get it to start back up.
- After replacing my battery I found it dead again only a few days later. I fully charged it and then it died again the next day.
- My Jeep acts like it is out of gas.
- My Dodge Caravan stalls out and is difficult to start back up.
