98-Mitsubhi Eclipse - 2.4 SOHC fuel pump issues

98-Mitsubhi Eclipse - 2.4 SOHC.
Stopped running, checked voltage at fuel pump, only 10.8 to 11 volts.
Ran jumper from battery to pump it runs. Cam and Crank sensors check OK. Switched pump and MFI relays no change.
Where is the pump relay module located, could this be a culprit. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

There should be battery voltage at the fuel pump. Check the battery voltage at the fuel pump relay to be sure that there is power coming from the battery. Check voltage at fuel pump fuse.

My 98 S-10 aks like there isnt anyfuel going to the throttle body, but ther is. fuel pump, filter are well. -please help

If it's a fuel issue, did you check proper fuel pressure? Engine cranking is the fuel pump running? Did you check voltage and ground for the fuel pump. I've seen fuel pumps that would run, but, wouldn't make proper fuel pressure.
Engine cranking, you have spark at the plugs and fuel injector pulse?

You might want to double check that connector to the fuel pump. These cars are known for melting the inside of the connector and causing a poor connection. You'll need to remove the pump also to check the inside of the pump connector. Look for a dark brown discoloration. If you do have this discoloration, replace the pump module and the electrical connector. You may want to test the voltage to the connector to make sure that you have 12 volts going to the pump

1996 4dr Blazer is it the Fuel Pump or Fuel Pump Relay??? Just tonight "check guages" light came on and truck stopped running. Happen to be near repair shop, mechanic said its the fuel pump cause...

Spray gas into your carborator. Try to start it. If it starts and dies instantly, it is probably the fuel pump. You can also check the voltage going out of the pump. It should be near 12 volts. If it is not kicking on, it is probably no volts. Check the filter though. If it is clogged, it wont start.

The injectors may be showing bad because of the stuff that you put into the fuel tank. It will work itself through. If the system is showing lean fuel, replace the O2 sensor if it has over 100,000 miles on it. It directly controls the fuel/air mixture. Replace the fuel filter, don't try to clean it. If things still aren't running right, check the fuel pressure on the fuel rail located over the injectors at the the test port (which looks like a tire valve). The pressure should read around 40 PSI with the engine running. Any reading much lower suggests a worn fuel pump or a defective fuel pressure regulator. You can rent a kit that checks the pressure safely.

03 eclipse starting issue

The head lights killing the car is a charging problem.Put a volt meter on the car,and check the voltage while the car is running.It should read about 13.65 to 14.25 volts.If it is less than this ,the alternator is not putting out enough voltage,or none at all.If there is 12 volts or a little more when you check it(while the car is running)then the alternator is not charging at all.12 volts is plain ole battery voltage.Check for a alternator fuse that is blown,or any cable or wires loose or come apart.If there is nothing found,then replace the alternator.Be sure the battery cables(cable ends) are clean and shining.Not dull in color,or grey,to black.Also the post on the battery.Put them back on tight.If this helped,please let us know,thank you.

Fuel not working

should have 12 volts at pump during engine cranking. with key in "on" position, the fuel pump only gets voltage for 2 seconds if engine is not running. Read voltage during cranking. Check fuel pump relay in battery jucntion box under hood.
