fuel pump wont turn on.

Postby destin93 » Tue Oct 20, 2015 5:37 pm



I have a 1984 goldwing 1200. I replaced the fuel lines and fuel pump and the fuel pump shut off relay. (The old relay smoked when i turned the bike on) but the fuel pump still does not turn on. And i cant get the bike to start. How many fuse boxes does the bike have? I know of the one on the air box. But it hase no fuses for the pump. So is there any other fuse boxes?

There is a main fuse (dog bone) by the battery box you might wish to check it. :D :D

Thank you for the reply. Do i have to take the battery out to see it? And if it was bad could i still turn the bike on? Cuz everything turnes on light, horn, and the starter still works. All electronics but the fuel pump.

If the dog bone fuse is bad, nothing works. you might have a burned up fuel pump. :( :(

Keep in mind,the fuel pump only gets power when its contacts are closed AND there's spark at the plugs.
It's not continuous volts feeding it.Just a brief pulse of power to get the pump to cycle then power again when the pump cycles again.
