my 2006 santa fe wont start and when it starts will not stay running(recently changed fuel pump)

5

Asked by May 13, 2015 at 07:25 AM about the 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe

Question type: General

i recently replaced the fuel pump in my 2006 santa fe along with some other parts that
have nothing to do with the fuel system. now the car wont start and if it manages to
start it shuts off. i managed to get it to run by revving the engine up while in park but
when i put the car in reverse it would just shut off. finally i revved it up enough where i
could reverse and take the car home .. i mode a stop for air and when i put the car in
reverse it ran smoothly.. then i serviced the car and now it wont stay start at all and if
it does start not even gas can keep it going.

bad connection fuel pump relay bend pins a little and put back in socket the relay gets hot well driving and weakens the relay socket by bending pins make relay tighter in socket no more bad connection, this happen to me, fuel pump relay is under engine hood in fuse box.
