Re: 1991 XJ SE - Crank no start problems

Thank you both for the replies,

I have not tried hotwiring it, I don't think I have the tools or the know how to do that. I'm sure there are plenty of how-tos around the internet. Not sure what you mean by "Bad connector". Do you mean the male/female power connectors that are near the fuel pump?

I will be trying to bang on the tank haha, a neighbor suggested doing that.

But as I mentioned previously, the power not getting to the pump is concerning. 8Mud, can you clarify a few things, I'm new to XJ's and car mechanics:

Is ASD the Auto Shutdown Relay? Where is the Ballast Relay located? In the relay box in the engine bay? Still haven't been able to find the fuse to the fuel pump itself.

I'll be checking the power to the ballast resistor but what does "A quick check for both the fuel crank and fuel run relay" entail?

Sorry for the 10 million questions, thanks again!

Some additional info: The 1991 XJ is a 6 cylinder 4.0, and 4x4.
