Question about 1993 Buick Century

Vehicle will not start after replacing fuel pump and gas tank

I bought a 93 Buick Century wagon and the people I bought it form told me
that their mechanic said that it needed a new fuel pump. I replaced the pump and the gas tank and the car will not start. Someone has told me
that if the vehicle gets into a crash, a switch will shut off so that the gas
tank does not explode and I need to reset that switch. I have looked for
the switch and cannot find it. Does anyone know where it is? Does it seem logical to think that when I replaced the fuel pump that I tripped
that emergency shut off switch somehow? Thanks, Greg

I have a 2001 Buick Century I have ran out of gas for the first time how do I get it back started

The fuel pump is submerged in gas in the tank. The liquid gas keeps it from overheating. If the fuel pump was run in an almost dry tank and is the original pump, it may have gone bad. On many cars you can hear the pump run for a few seconds when the key is placed in the start position without starting the engine.

Fuel Pump Location

The 2.8 engine in a 1986 Century uses a carb instead of fuel injection. So it uses a mechanical pump that goes in the side of the engine.

Not enough fuel pressure.
Hopefully, it might be a clogged fuel filter, start there... replace it. ($9 AutoZone).
Could also be fuel pump or the fuel pressure valve is stuck open, allowing fuel to drain back to the gas tank (no fuel in line).
