From what you have described it would be a short in the fuse pump circuit. You sould start checking your ground wires.

90 lesabre limited Fuel pump fuse blows every time I start the car It's a 20a fuse, I'm not even sure if it's a final pump fuse I can't find any diagrams showing what is what. Right side of dash


20 AMP is a big fuse, I would say its the fuse to the motor check this web site http://www.beijing-fanyi.com/1990/1990-buick-lesabre-wiring-diagrams

Fuse s under hood keeps blowing. It is the inj/coil fuse


Try jumping the starter with the key on. If it doesn't blow. Check the start wire for chafing and grounding out. You can pull the starter relay, Try to start it, see if it blows,yes, it is between the fuse panel and fuel pump. no. Put it in and pull the fuel pump relay. Start it. If it blows, then it is some where between the fuse panel and starter. If you have one of those intelligent fuse panels, it could be that also. You can have the codes read for it. But it takes a scanner, not a code reader.

How do I stop my efi fuse from blowing repeatedly. Just changed the fuel pump and now that fuse keeps blowing.


What about your fuel rail regulator, which is in the tank with the fuel pump on some cars? Does it have a pressure switch/sensor that isn't telling the engine control module to shut the pump off when the rail pressure is obtained? If you turn the vehicle to on (not start) and the pump runs more than a couple seconds, like until the fuse blows, it could be either a stuck pump relay or worse, the fuel pump control signal. Pull the pump relay, add a new fuse and see if the pump runs with the key in the on position again, which it shouldn't. If it doesn't run, the issue is either the relay, or the control signal to the relay that is keeping the pump on all the time, causing the fuse to blow.

It sounds to me like the pressure is going to high and stalling or slowing the pump causing excessive current from the motor and blowing the fuse. If that's the case your old pump might not have been the problem. How's the fuel filter? That's in line with the fuel line to the fuel rail?

You don't have to answer the questions, just look into them for your own peace of mind.

Try to disarm the alarm system first,if that doesn't work,try your spare key,if it works the key is faulty.if this fails,put it on diagnostic machine.,since it can be EWS.

95 Buick LeSabre 3.8 L which is the fuel pump relay?


You can usually go by the wire colors. The fuel pump relay wires are pink, gray, black, and green with a white stripe. When troubleshooting a fuel pump that is not coming on, the relay is the best place to figure out why. You can pull the relay out and put a jumper wire from the battery to the terminal with the gray wire. If the pump runs, you know that isn't the problem. Then turn the key on and use a jumper between the terminals with the pink and gray wires. If this turns the pump on, you know the ignition switch is sending power to the relay, and the fuse is good. Pull that jumper out, but leave the key on. Push the relay back into the socket, but put a jumper from a ground point to the terminal with the black wire. If that turns the pump on, the ground wire is bad. If not, the PCM is not turning the relay on. Reasons for that may be a bad wire from the PCM, a passlock issue, or the PCM fuse/power wire.

My saturn was cutting off after awhile,when that happened i checked for fuel and did not have any pressure then i changed the fuel pump and it is still happening and i can not find the fuel pump relay,like...


Okay lets do the first turn the key does the pump come on? okay lets override the fuel pump relay go to the passenger side, when you get there pull the cover on the upper middle console, Now on the cover look for fuel pump relay you found it right? you have 2 ways to override the fuel pump from the relay or test port connection. Now you said relay so find the relay using the panel cover . Identify the relay due to safety and i dont know which one you pulled let activate a relay take the relay cover apart , use a small screw driver or a jack knife and open it dont worry about breaking the cover it will always slip back. with the relay exposed can you collapse the switch together so it will make contact ?good ?if not put a tooth pick in there to get the contact closed. turn key on. stick the relay on now use your finger and collapse it together does the fuel pump turn on. if it doesnt the fuse in the engine compartment may have opened not because of the relay but a bad injector can blow fuel pump fuses.
