My 1990 1500 chev with throttle body injection system has no power to the fuel pump fuse or relay is the circuit completed through the oil pressure switch and if so where is the switch located

On the v-6 engines the oil pressure switch feeds the fuel pump. I'm not sure about your 1500. You didn't say what engine you have, so I will assume it is a v8. The oil pressure switch should be behind the distributor, near the firewall. You can use a paperclip as a jumper in the electrical connector that goes to the oil pressure switch. If it's the switch or low oil pressure, the jumper should complete the circuit and energize the fuel pump.

I am trying to find a picture that will show me where the Oil Pressure Switch is located

On the 2.4L engine, the oil pressure switch is located on the side of the engine block facing the firewall. On the 3.3L and 3.8L engines, the oil pressure switch is located next to the oil filter.

Good luck, and remember rated this help!!!

Oil pressure gauge on my 2000 jeep is on

The most common problem is a bad oil pressure switch on the 99-02 grand cherokee with the 4.7l v8. The part has failed on 90% of all 99-02 grand cherokees I have worked on. The housing is junk,but since it has lasted longer then 36,000 miles the factory would not issue a recall. The oil pressure switch can be purchased at any outlet. but have found the duralast was decent. that being said Go to autozone and get part # PS471 (oil pressure switch for 1999-2002 N code 4.7L V8.) chances are if you encounter the same problem after replacement you will need to drop the oil pan and un clog the oil sump.

To replace the switch, under the hood look for the power steering pump on the driver side of the vehicle, to the right and under the p/s pump is the oil pressure switch, If it is wet, its bad for sure, remember to disconnect the battery before service,as not to harm the gauges.
