Fuel Pump Relay Switch

I have a 1989 pontiac 600 LE, 2.8 liter. I accidently let the car run out of gas. After that it wouldnt start, we replaced the fuel pump already and the car still wont start, I think i have burnt the Fuel Pump Relay Switch and I have already bought the replacement but I dont know where the old one is to replace it. Where is the Fuel Pump Relay switch. Ive already taken my dash apart.

Underneath your hood, behind the passenger side headlight, behind the core support, is a bank of 2-8 relays. One of those relays is the relay needed for your fuel pump. There will also be a fuel pump relay fuse located there. The relay designation should be on the cover of the relay compartment.

Does pontiac grand am have a relay,or switch or button to turn electrick feul pump back on after car runs out of gas?


Your make and model car has no such fuel pump cut-off device like a switch, and in any event it is only activated due top a crash exceeding 3 times the force of gravity, . GM uses a oil pressure switch to shut down the pump but only in the case of an accident. The small electric fuel pump that is used in this car depends on the gasoline in your tank to cool it and lubricate it, when you run out of gas it damages the fuel pump due to heat and it will not restart. I get this problem posted allot. It is very important in modern cars with in fuel tank electric pumps that you not let the fuel level go below 1/8 tank on the gauge. You will need to have the fuel pump replaced and to do that requires the gas tank be removed from the car.

1989 ciera orange wire going to the oil pressure switch was accidently grounded. Will turn over backfire but not start . Fuel pump won't power up. No power to fuel pump relay. Took relay apart manually...


You didn't post an engine size but you are correct in thinking there is a fusible link that blew when you grounded the orange wire but there is also an inline fuse that protects the oil pressure switch and the fuel pump relay. It is usually located on the firewall.

You can check the fusible links near the starter for continuity. If one of them is burnt up start there by replacing it. If none of them are bad you will need to find the inline fuse. At least the 3.3 liter engine is set up this way.

Fuel pumps will not run!


Hey lets try this ! Locate your starter solenoid & look for a yellow wire marked with a "W" . That may be the fusible link for fuel pump. Let me know what you find.
