Not firing

How is your fuel pressure after the fuel pump replacement? (requires adapters and a gauge.) You also can use "test fuel" (like starting fluid) to help determine if the problem is fuel or ignition. Just be careful as the stuff is explosive. For more in depth trouble shooting you might want to visit a Suzuki forum. (Your Tracker is a rebadged Suzuki Sidekick.)

Everythings fine in our 1991 suzuki sidekick. but she wont start. We know that theres a short in the fuel pump wire. How would we fix or find the short?

There's no easy way to find and fix it. Check all the connections in the harness for corrosion and clean them up before putting them back together. Especially the ones at the rear of the vehicle. You could try running a jumper wire from the battery to as far back as you can reach. If this gets the pump working then splice this wire into the existing and bring it into your fuse box. Most manufacturer's leave at least one open spot that turns on with the key. Plug into that with an in-line fuse.
You may have to lower the tank to get at the wires there to solve the problem. A lot of dirt accumulates up there over time. Hope this helps.

I have a 95 suzuki sidekick in which i replaced the fuel tank on... i connected everything the way it was and it will crank but wont start... i can hear the fuel pump kick on and tried to spray fuel in the...

try taking the fuel line loose at the fuel filter and see if any fuel comes out of it. if no fuel is coming from the tank before the filter more than likely have the lines reversed. also make sure that you are getting the proper pressure to the fuel rail.

91 sidekick engine won't start, fuel pump relay replaced and working,fuel pump not running

Check for power at the fuel pump, I've seen these have a bad connection for the fuel pump in a connector behind the left rear taillight. If that connection is good and you have power and ground to the pump when you cycle the key or crank the engine, then replace the pump.

Jack the rear of the car up as high as you can, be sure to use jack stands of some type to support the weight safely. The fuel filter is usually mounted just in front of the gas tank.
it takes a ( #17 wrench I think) to loosen the fuel lines, a little fuel will leak out so have something to catch or wipe up the mess. Filter cost about $25.00 dollars. Have fun

93 Suzuki Sidekick, Engine turned off and wont start. Check Compression(good), Spark(good), Disconneted hose from fuel regulator (return to tank) and fuel just keeps pouring out when I try to start engine,...

the computer controls the fuel allowed into the engine, so if its not shutting the fuel pump off after the initial prime, it's probaly a computer problem, they are know for corroding inside the computer, can be fixed cheaper then replaced!
