Default No Power to fuel pump 2000 Sportage

Hello everyone
My daughgter has a 2000 sportage the just died on her. So I replaced the fuel pump, no go there is no power to fuel pump. Both relays are good,and I also check for lose connection and could not find any. I tried spraying starting fluid in intake to start it and it wouldnt start. My question is if it broke a timing belt or jumped time would that kill the power from the computer to the fuel pump. Just trying to get as much info befor I pull the cover off the timing belt this weekend. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again for such a great forum .
Steve

Did you check the main fuse near the relays i think its a 15 amp. don't over amp this fuse it protecks the ecm. There is a 10 amp fuse for fuel pump in the fuse box under the dash. This a lot easer then removing the timming belt cover. Hope this helps.

Red face 2000 Kia Fuel Problem

You have any luck?

We are having the same problem. We have accessed the the door in the back and currently checking the power from the wires to the pump to narrow down the problem. If you have any suggestions we would appreciate the help. If we find anything we'll keep you posted.

Im new to this site & am not sure if you had fixed your pump problem but i have had 2 kia sportages with no power to the fuel pumps & in both cases it was corosion inside the plug that went to the fuel pump that was not making a connection. In both cases the pump was good but the pins in the plug from the truck that pllugs into the fuel pump had corroded away so instead of 4 contacts, there were only 3 on one side.

Talking Thank You

Thank you I will inform my husband who is working on it a little bit at a time. He actually tested the pump and there is very little/no pressure coming out of it. So we are searching for a new pump and screen for it. Boy are they expensive. We will keep up the search for that since we are more interested in the inexpensive route regarding repairs. This is a project/spare car that was given to us so luckily we are in no hurry.

Thanks again

You can check if your timing belt is broken or off without removing the cover. Just remove the oil cap and ask for someone to crank the engine over while you look inside. If the pistons are moving then the timing belt is fine.
I am having the same problem as yours. My 1997 sportage won't start. I checked the fuel pump and it seemed to be not working (no noise when the ignition is on). I measured the electrical current at the fuel pump and it was like 9V. When I jumpered the points A and B in the engine DLC, the fuel pump started to make a loud noise and after 20 seconds stopped, but the car did not start. I am suspecting that my engine main relay and fuel pump relay are bad. I will replace them and see if it works. Maybe you are having a similar problem. It's best to replace the inexpensive components before replacing the fuel pump.
