What's up, guys? I'm Andy from 1A Auto. In this video I'm going to show you how to replace the fuel pump relay on this 2012 Ford Escape. If your fuel pump's not working, this may be the culprit, but you want to make sure that you check the inertia switch or the fuel shut off switch before. If you this need this part or other parts for your vehicle, click the link in description and head over

Underneath the back of the vehicle, we have the vehicle raised up. Right above the rear axle is the fuel pump relay right here. To disconnect the connector, you just push down on the little tab and slide it down. I'm going to check and make sure there's no corrosion in that connector. If any of those connectors are green, then they need to be addressed. I'm going to take an eight millimeter socket and a ratchet, and take these two bolts out. I'm just going to hold the module while I take this other bolt up. Then slide the module off.

Here's the old fuel pump relay. Here's the new fuel pump relay from If you look at the mounting holes, they're in the same spot. The index pin is in the same spot. The shape is the same. The connector is the same. Get yours at and you'd be ready to rock and roll.

Take the relay. Slide it up into position. Take the bolts. Get one started. Then I'll take a eight millimeter socket and ratchet. Tighten these down. Remember it is plastic so just snug, not too tight. I'll take the connector, line it up, lock it in place.
