Replaced fuel pump yet van will not turn on

I have a 1998 Chevy express 2500 which I changed the fan pulley which was breaking my fan belt it was not working correctly and of course the fan belt now took it out for a drive and when I tried to turn it back on it would not turn on Checked the van saw that the fuel pump was not working correctly so I also took out the old one and purchased a new one and still the van will not turn on nor the pump pump out gas nor the gauges on the dashboard move do you think it may need a new relay ?
or any suggestions

help getting fustrated dont know what else to do.

Check your battery cables and all fuses. Did you disconnect the battery when you performed the repairs? If everything checks out ok then disconnect the battery for 15 minutes and reconnect and try again. If nothing try jumpstarting the vehicle. Something might have killed the Bat.

Fan belt snapped on my renault express diesel changed that but now it now it turns over but wont fire up

check the belt is on correctly if it is it will be tight and around all pulleys,make sure around fuel pump pulley. Also ask yourself why belt snapped in first place was it old/cracked and due to break or did a pulley sieze and cause belt to squeel and burn then snap.

i have a 1998 3500, with the 5.7v-8, and fought electrical problems for eight months now. i believe it is a problem within the chevy van, because a lot of people complain about blown fuses. my fuse was the ecm-b fuse as well, and after cleaning all the grounds and bat. connections, starter connections, and disabling the a/c circuit, on the advice of another poor van owner i replaced the ignition coil. six months so far, and no problems. this might help you as well. mine did not have any visable problems, but he was persistant, so i did it. good luck

try to spray a little fuel into the throttle body or carb and see if it starts and runs if it does check your filters and spider injectors also it wouldnt hurt to check your hall effect sensor
