Question about 1997 Chevrolet Blazer
My '94 Geo Tracker, 2 wheel drive, 1.6 liter, automatic,fuel injected car stalled out driving down the freeway. All of a sudden it wasn't getting gas. It didn't sputter or hesitate..just no gas. At the exact moment it quit I saw a flash under the dash in the fuse box area. It had blown a fuse. I've replacd the fuse, but every time I turn the key on ,it blows it out again. It turns over..just won't start. I have no cover for the fuse box, so I don't even know which fuse is blowing out.My Haynes manual does NOT show the fuse box diagrm or any wiring diagrams other than radio, a.c. ,no emissions.I've checked what wiring I can visually,nothing obvious. I don't have an ohm meter or anything really,but need a diagram badly! I have checked, and there is no gas going to the carb/injectors.I'm a girl..in case you couldn't tell..haha and really need some help..in girly terms please! Do any of you make house calls? Drinks and dinner at my place....lol I thank you for any help you may be able to offer.
I am a GM Goodwrench technician. Bad fuel pumps usually dont blow fuses but faulty pump harnesses do. either way you look at it the tank will probably have to come out of it. the Fuel Pump Module is between 250-768 dollars AC Delco depending on the type you need, and give or take some, around 800 - 1500 dollars for the whole repair at a dealership depending on hourly rates. I'd say your best bet is to have someone with the proper tools work on it, sorry. It really isn't an easy fix because before you go replacing pump modules, especially at 768 bucks a shot, that's a 2002 Blazer the most expensive module i've seen. You really want to have the wiring inspected and make sure a wiring repair wont fix the issue. If you go buy a meter and can check grounds and voltages first, you can give it a go yourself, you can pick up a good meter for 50 bucks if you look at the right places. I would definately check wiring before slappin a new pump in there, you could damage a new pump if the wiring is faulty and then cost yourself even more money.

As much as I would like to take you up on your offer of drinks for car repair, my wife might mind. However as for your Tracker it sounds like you have a bad fuel pump. I believe you're a little techinical minded so check out Alldata.com and go to the DIY section, there you will get all the factory information on your car. I do believe that you will have to remove the fuel tank to replace the pump.
