Fuel Relay stops working breifly

Asked by Jul 29, 2015 at 09:35 PM about the 2004 Kia Sedona

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have an 04 Sedona cut out driving down the highway but kept going after a sec. A
couple days later would not fire up. It would turn over but not fire, let it sit a minute
then it fired up like nothing happened, its done that a handful of times. The other day
went to start and sat for an hour would not fire up. Swapped the horn relay and fuel
relay and it fired right up, next day it died driving down the road same situation wouldnt
fire up... swapped another relay in and fired up. Now i can put both the relays in that i
thought were bad and car fires up no prob....what would cause this? bad fuel pump?

Might not be the fuel system at all! I had a '93 caprice that did the same thing. Turned out it was a "pick up" coil mounted under the distributor. Part cost less than $20 bucks, but I ended up spending $200 to have the car towed to the repair shop and fixed. I tried replacing the fuel filter and fuel pump and just wasted my money.
