Asked by Sep 19, 2016 at 12:25 PM about the 1997 Ford F-150 Lariat Stepside SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 97 F150 and it wont start.  It died a few times yesterday and when I
went to start it again, it wont start and now the fuel gauge is all the way over
to Full and stays there?  I have changed out the fuel relay switch someone
told me it could be, but did nothing.  Please help!!

If the gauge is going way past the fuel mark that says there is an open circuit in the fuel gauge circuit, but it also won't run, so check the interia switch and for power at the fuel pump assembly, it will shown briefly when you first turn on the key but will quit in just a few seconds, so,if you have power and gorund and no fuel pressure replace the fuel pump assembly and fuel filter, you already replace the relay so that is not necessary now. Hopefully that will also fix the fuel gauge.
