You mean it turns over but wont start? have you checked the fuel pump inertia switch? it is on the rt side kick panel i believe. will have a reset button sometimes can trip if it gets kicked. can also try beating on tank while spinning over and see if this shakes pump to get it working

    it has a button on top that pushes down should be on left or right kick panels can feel over the top of them and should feel it

    The inertia fuel shutoff switch is on the right cowl panel, just forward of the door, and below the instrument panel.

    this is where alldata says it is. also your fuel pump relay is in the fuse box underhood.

    please reconsider rating

    yes it can be it usually is not the inertia switch but i have had a few over the years that it gets tripped. What this switch does is in case of an accident it cuts off fuel pump.So a kick or jar against it can trip. Feel the relay and see if you feel it click on for about five seconds when cut key on

2000 gmc sierra been sitting two years, when i tried to start it seems like no fuel pressure. now it keeps blowing ecm2 fuse...and i dont hear fuel pump any more and gas gauge mreads way out of range.......

it sounds like you need a fule pump for your truck because you should never leave a truck sitting that long or after you leave gas sit for along time this gunk builds up and it wont let gas go through the hoses.

The battery is fine. The truck ran out of gas now

many times after a vehicle runs out of gas the fuel filter has picked up all the **** in the tank and is clogged check to see if this is the problem or you might possibly have vapor lock due to air in the line when the tank ran dry

1993 f250 wont start no spark or fule fuses are good

what I do in the shop is find a computer that the numbers match and swap it out and try it if you can find a good salvage yard that may let you try it before you buy or alot of times you can get a used one for about 35.00 the other way is to remove it and open it up and see if you can smell that is was burnt or see any burnt spots.

1990 f150 fule pump wont shut off when truck is shut off

Check the power supply going into the fuel pump relay. If it is still hot when the ignition is off then your ignition switch is probably the problem.
