    Have 89 sidekick, ran fine, shut off & it wouldnt start. Coudnt smell gas so checked for pluged filter. Replaced that & it started, turned it off & it dont start again! Than gas tank & fuel pump started leaking. Repaired tank & got new pump & it still wont start! Canot hear fuel pump working. I cant find the relay (is not were they say it is?) & cant get wiring diagram for fuel system? Where is the relay, the ground, & what fuse is for the gas pump?

    Have you checked to see if the plugs are firing? You can do this by taking out a spark plug and putting the wire back on it, set it against the block and have someone turn the engine over. if you do not see a spark jump across the plug your not getting any fire. The fuel pump relay may be bad is there a small plastic box located on the passenger side inner fender? If so take off the cap and flip it over there should be a diagram in there telling you what each relay and fuse is for.

SOURCE: 91 sidekick engine won't start, fuel pump relay

Check for power at the fuel pump, I've seen these have a bad connection for the fuel pump in a connector behind the left rear taillight. If that connection is good and you have power and ground to the pump when you cycle the key or crank the engine, then replace the pump.

SOURCE: Which relay is the fuel pump relay?

The fuel pump relay switch, if that is what you are looking for, is actually a red button hidden underneath the hood latch. We just had to do the same thing and that will fix it. Just press the red button and you should be fine.

Fuel Pump Relay Switch

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.
