There is no kill switch just a fuse and a relay. To replace the pump the tank must be droped down and the lines are a bear to seperate.

Have the crank shaft sensor check out. This is a beginning of the problem. After that it will never be able to start since the ECM doesn't know what the position of the piston reported through the crankshaft sensor to turn on the proper ignition. Good luck.

1996 GMC Suburban - Quit Running While Driving, Will Not Start


Listen at the back by the fuel tank for a 1 to 2 second prime cycle whirr from the tank when turning the key to run position after it has been off for at least 10 seconds.
No noise means no running pump.
....and no noise means.....
Most likely it will need a new fuel pump....80%
Fuel pump relay 10%
Fuse or bad wiring 10%

The quick fix to get home is to crank the truck to create oil pressure to fire the pump......and while cranking WHACK the tank hard with a 2by4 or something like that....to jar the pump..... and it may start running long enough to get it somewhere to be repaired.
This works 60% of the time on a dead pump.

If you do hear a whirrr.....you most likely need a ignition module or crank or dist pickup.

1999 Suburban turns over but engine doesn't start...


First, make sure they put oil back in the crankcase. Your motor may be seized. Next, we need to know if the fuel filter has ever been changed. If not, it's probably clogged and it will burn up the fuel pump if you continue to try to force gas into the injectors.

1999 GMC Suburban Wont Turn Over


It sounds like you have a security problem, I had the same thing it would fire and run for half of a second and then that was it if anything at all. Had the security system rebooted, now it starts and runs fine.
