I assume you removed the box from the truck for easier acess to the fuel tank? With more information we could determine other possible solutions. Also what size fuse are you blowing, and does the vehicle run during this period? Get back to me and we could try a series of no to very low cost test to confirm problem.

1991 toyota 4runner efi fuse keeps blowing

Correct pump for the truck?
A blown fuse means there is too much current draw from the pump.
Why is the tough question.Pinched wire?
If the fuse does not blow,immediately,can you measure the current draw at the pump in put wire?

Be SURE to cycle the key on for 5 seconds,off for 2 and back on for 5 seconds 3 times! Prime the pump.
If not primed,properly the new pump may burn out.

Cavalier '99 the fuel pump fuse blow only if the car is in drive and press the break pedal or pull the hand break, if I run the car on drive is OK if I do not put the brakes. On reverse and park i

Thats wild.
The fuel pump - injector circuit is on one fuse and the brake circuit is on a different fuse. I can't think of a way the two would be connected other than something wrong with the fuse box.
If the pump fuse blew when you hit the brake pedal, it could be something shorted in the harness, but that would not explain the parking brake.
If there is nothing wrong with the terminals in the fuse box, and no sign of trouble with the wiring around the brake pedal, you may have to hunt the wiring harness back to the pump to look for bare wires.
It might be easier to run a new wire from the pump relay to the pump outside of the main harness.
They make circuit breakers that can take the place of regular fuses, but that would only be a temp fix.

2001 Grand Am GT. I have 12 volts at the fuse box input terminal, but only 1-2 volts at the fuel pump fuse. When I do a continuity check between the input terminal and the fuse connector it reads 0 ohms....

Use a jumper wire to get power to the fuel pump fuse. stay on the supply sides. Thats your easiest fix. Or replace the whole fuse panel. I've taken these apart and they are a mess inside. hard to fix, harder to get back together right. the problem is that one of the feed wires (which are all bare) has came loose or corroded and is not making a good connection, thus giving you 2 volts.

1997 yukon, keep blowing ECM - 1, 20 amp fuse under hood . I had replace fuel pump a few months back, could it be a bad connection on the fuel pump?

i would check wire harness for bare wire but first i would look under that massive fuse box under hood, i kept blowing air cond relay and i traced it back to corroded connection on that fuse. not saying this is it and i hope it is that simple for you. other than that research exactly what the ecm-1 CONTROLS and search,test,grounds those systems. If i can come across any other symptoms i will forward them to you.

My 98 Jetta GL 2.0 has a very low idle

Every time you loose power to a throttle body(disconnect battery or unplug wire from throttle), you need to do throttle body adaptation , using appropriate scantool.

1991 chevy cavalier- stopped running going down road. Replaced fuel pump and fuel pump relay-ran for two weeks and the when making a stop,cut off again and won't start and is blowing the fuel pump fuse...

Sounds like a short between the fuse panel and the fuel pump relay. This can be from the fuel pump relay itself through an exposed bit of wire, or even a defective relay which seems to happen more than most times. Check the wiring to the relay and wrap or tape anything where bare wire may be exposed. Disconnect relay and try a new fuse. IF the fuse doesn't blow, then the problem source is the relay itself that is defective.

Hope this helps!

99 cavalier keeps blowing rear defrost fuse, I've disconected the battery and installed a new fuse (30 amps, what was in there before and what the chart calls up), but when I reconnect the battery the fuse...

You are looking for a short in the wiring. Start at the rear defroster and trace the wires back toward the fuse panel. You are looking for spots where the insulation is rubbed off and the wire is bare touching the body or possibly 2 wires bared touching each other. When you find it just tape them up with electrical tape and reposition them so it doesn't happen again. Hope this helps.

My break lights will not work @ all, signals , nor will the back up lights. I checked the fuse box & the fuse are ok. what should I do?

check for a loose,coroded or broken ground wire.look for a black wire located in the wireing harness(trunk) that connects to the body or chassis.if you can't find it, connect a new ground with a trailer snap a length of wire next to the black ground wire and snap the two together in the trailer connector.take the new ground wire and connect it to metal somewhere in your try your lights, they should work. if they don't, rub the bare end of the wire on an area that has no paint.check your ground wire from the battery to the body only if you don't have front lights working .
