....an undervoltage condition from a BAD ground can cause this relay to fail...you must take the main 1/0 battery cable off of the chassis ground and wire brush the lug and the chassis to allow a full three hundred cold cranking amps thru that and still unwavering 12 volts for the ECM and auxilliary devices such as fuel pump, igniition....headlights windshield wipers etc~~

Judge it could still be a relay even it starts?

welll it could be "stuck on" where you could not shut your car off~

okay we are talikin' about the fuel pump relay?....bad boy be dead...the ignition relay could have you not be able to shut it off or never come on~ either would be compromised with an undervoltage condition~

hey Judge but i think its a Hot cranking problem not Cold cranking. it will start only if i hold the pedal to the floor. if i turn the key and just pump the gas pedal it will just try to start. same thing if i just turn the key it just tries to start.like i said pedal to floor turn key and after like 10 sec it starts.
