loss of fuel pressure + fan fuse melted box

Recommended Posts

went for a ride today and after bout 2 hours of having a blast the trooper just started running really ruff wouldnt except any fuel and it just shut off check fuel pressure it was under 20 psi and went to check fuses and the fan fuse actually melted the the wire and the fuse without blowin the fuse so i towed it home started messin with it i pulled the fan fuse out and turned the key it fired right up lokked at the fuel ressure it was bout 62 psi put the fan fuse back in the fan worked but the fuse and the realy and the white wire gets really hot like its shorted out any ideas on how this would have made me loose fuel pressure or wha could be the problem in general

I've this several times in 12 v and 110 and 220vac. My theory on it is that a slightly connection develops some heat or corrosion which makes more heat which causes it to loosen and or corrode which makes more heat which........... until you generating enough heat to melt everything but not pulling enough power to pop the fuse. I just finally quits making contact.

any ideas on y the fan fuse would have caused the fuel pump to drop in pressure or do you think it was two separate problems ..... i guess im going to start by checkin all the wires from the fan and check all my grounds do you know how many grounds there are and where they are

well i check the harness from the fan to the fuse box no shorts any where the fan plug was wet so i dried it out wired everything back up and my fuel pressure would not go above 20 psi again untill i pulled the fan fuse the pressure jumped right up to 50 psi put the fuse back in and that white wire and fan fuse still keeps getting hot i dont understand how the fuel pump and the fan are connected

Place the fan & fuel pump on their own circuit. You can purchase an in-line fuse for protection at any parts house.

they are on theyre own circuit arent they there is separet fuses for each idk im just confused lol

They use the same power supply.. use a relay and a inline fuse for the fan and have the old fan power wire trigger the relay.. it maybe that the power supply going into the fuse box has a high resistance in it, I would check it with a volt meter and see how much voltage is at the pump with and without the fan fuse in

I quickly looked at the diagram and it shows a wire going between the fan relay and the fuel pump relay.

ok i checked the fuel pump current with the fan fuse in it was 13.20vdc and with the fuse out it was 13.75 vdc so whats this mean

yeah looks like they jump the power from the fan to the fuel pump

As the connection begins to heat and self destruct, the heat is caused by the voltage drop across the connection, and as it self destructs the voltage drop get larger and larger leaving less voltage for the pump and thus the pump can't make the pressure needed.

The amount of heat is determined the voltage drop across the connection and the current through the connection, as the voltage goes up, the current will decrease, but the heat (wattage dissipated) will continue to increase up to about a 25% voltage drop and then start falling off, but the damage has probably been done by this point.

Hope this is understandable, It's doubtful you have any other problems, like grounds, but it doesn't hurt to check, real often, I have cured problems that I couldn't fine the exact cause of by just pull the fuse or relay and plugging them back in, they seem to make a better contact because of the sliding in & out. Also if you have a loose connection,you should be able to feel it.

ok thanks alot i talked to snowman yesterday and he explained how to put the fan on its own circuit ill be finishing that up today ill let you guys know how it turns out thanks again for everyones help

      I need help locating a rear cv style driveline for my early 2008 t4 trooper. I have broken 2 ujoints now and almost put a hole in the oil pan! I found one place but they wont return my calls. The mud season started and i got a big paper weight. Any help is greatly appreciated by me and my family.

      This is rocmoc/Michael one of the first on this forum when the Joyner was one of the most active topics.  First an update of others.  The earlier members will also remember Lenny and Jeff.  With myself we organized the first Jamborees in 2009-2012.  Sadly if you have not heard we lost both Lenny and Jeff in 2018.    A great loss to the community.  Myself:  Still around but rolled over to Jeep and Arctic Cat Wildcat.  The Wildcat  design still remains me of my old 2008 Trooper.  Doing well as the Last Man Standing but cleaning out the garage.  Found some New and used Trooper parts I will list in the parts section.  Wanted to give you all a chance before I list on Ebay.  As many of you knew Lenny listed a lot of stuff on Ebay.  Will I partnered a lot of the stuff with him and I still have stuff.  Take care and I will check in for message should you want to ride.  Still make it to Utah every other year and am still in Southern AZ.

      Hey people! I'm looking for a ring and pinion  set for my rear diff. The bolts that hold the pinion shaft cover in place decided to pull threads and my pinion gear broke some teeth. Any help would be appreciated! I priced out a new diff and it's worth a lot for something that is prone to failure. Thanks in advance
