No access pannel you have to remove the tank. To do this job right relace teh entire fuel pum/sending unit and the electrical has to it some times the new unit comes with the wire harness also spen the extra 15$ and replace the fuel filter or it will burn out teh pump again.

Where is the fuel pressure sensor located on a 2002 GMC Sierra 1500 4X4?


The fuel tank pressure sensor on a 1999 GMC Sierra is located on the top of the fuel tank on the fuel pump itself. Most say that you need to drop the fuel tank to replace it but if you have access to a lift you can replace it without removing the fuel tank. By removing the rear U joint straps and moving the driveshaft to the side you can see and access the sensor for replacement. Chock wheels to prevent movement of the vehicle after driveshaft is disconnected.

REPLACE FUEL PUMP GMC 2002 SIERRa


the pump is in the gas tank siphon the gas out and remove the straps holding the tank(you will also need to remove the three screws holding the filler neck to the truck box under the filler door.)as you drop the tank you will also need to unplug the wiring to the top of the tank and the fuel lines they are usually plastic clips,but if this has been done before and the clips got broken from the first time they could have put clamps in place of the clips.I have found it much faster to remove the truck box itself and that way you don't have to drain the tank and it stays stationary while you RandR the pump with less chance of breaking anything.
Also did you double check the fuel pump relay under the hood in the relay box,I would start there first.
Hope this helps good luck.

1997 gmc sierra p/u 5.0l 2wd needs fuel pump


NO dont drop tank, you will be sorry, take bed off, only like 6 or 8 bolts, and you will have more room to work, and its a pain in the *** to undo the lines and drop the tank, you cant get in there to do it, but just basic tools nothing special, be sure and try not to make any sparks while takein off that ring to get the pump out, and put an ac delco pump on there
