Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Am
My wife and I were driving and all of sudden the car started to bogg down and as she tried to accelerate the car lost all will to move. We chugged into a safe area and parked. After that the car would turn over but not start. My first thought after a minute was the fuel pump. Listening for the pump as I turned the key on, there was no sound from the tank.
After towing the car and it sitting for a day the battery went dead. I tried to jump start and for a moment I heard the pump run. The car actually started for a minute at an idle, but when I tried too accelerate it died. No sound from the pump since, and no start. Im convinced that it's the pump, but my question is, is there a censor or anything that can cause the pump to get cut off from power? Maybe a reset switch that I can't seem to find? At $250 for a pump I just want to make sure I got it right. Thanks.
No rest switch that i know of, turn key on while listen for pump to run, tap on tank with rubber hammer to see if pump runs, hope this helps a little
