I have a 2003 chev silverado. The fuel gauge quit working then started working again on an off. Then my radio would go out and the fuel gauge would start working. Now my AC is not working. It's like...

It may seem like the problems are related, but they most likely are not at all, unless it's an actual battery power issue. Your fuel gauge consists of 2 parts and wires to connect them, the sending unit, which is in the gas tank connected to your fuel pump on your truck I believe, and the gauge itself inside your dash. It is most likely your sending unit/fuel pump which sucks cause that's like $350, altho easy enough to replace yourself with very little gas in the tank. As for the radio check fuses, and AC I have no idea...

Changed motor in 1995 T-Bird. Everything working, but can't get juice to coil pac or fuel pump. Have check fuses,etc. Any other suggestions appreciated!

Check the ground wires as I had the same problems whenever I painted my car. However it seems a little different. When you say everything is working, what do you mean? The car is turning over? Do the headlights come on? Can you hear the fuel pump engaging whenever you turn the key to the on position (not the start position)? If the answer is no to these questions, then it is the negative ground wire right in front of the battery location. I spent a month trying to figure this stupid thing out! Be sure the ground is tight and if it doesn't work, get some sandpaper and go to bare metal beneath the ground wire connection. Good luck!!!

1995 gmc safari, wont star what could be the problem

There is a good possibility the fuel pump is bad, or you have a spark issue, such as a cap, and rotor, or a coil, or coil wire. The fuel pump should put out 55 psi, and run when cranking. Good luck...

Where is the fuel relay on 1995 gmc safari

Located under the hood you will see a relay box(plastic) unclip the cover and walla should be listed as to what fuse/relay is what on the inside of the cover, generally there are more then one of the same relay's which makes testing it a breeze...just remove the twin relay and put it in the fuel pump relay connector to see if the pump works.
Hope this works!!!

1995 nissan pickup truck fuel problem

Fuel injected or carb? Make sure fuel line itself is clear. Some pumps are designed to self regulate (carb systems) some continually pump and a psi regulator sends back the excess fuel back to the tank (fuel inj systems) If the line is obstructed then pump can't deliver fuel fulltime.

If you think pump is not on consistent, try running a dedicated wire through a switch directly to the pump. If it works then you are looking for an electrical fault going to pump. Good luck.

Where is the location of the fuel pump relay in a 1995 GMC Safari?

Under the hood, look at the firewall. A large wire harness crossing from left to right. In the middle there should be 3 sets of relays. The one closes to the driver side should be it. Have someone cycle the key on. It should click and about 3 seconds it should click again.( if working properly)

Fuel relay located 1995 safari

For CMFI/CSFI vehicles, the fuel pump relay is normally found in the convenience center, located under the center of the dashboard.
If a problem is suspected, first check for loose electrical connections; no other service is possible, except replacement.
See Figure 1

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the retainer, if equipped.
  3. Disengage the relay electrical connector.
  4. Remove the relay by depressing the bracket clip at the rear of the relay, or removing the bolts from the retaining bracket, as applicable.
  5. If necessary, use a new relay, then reverse the removal procedures.
