Question about 1999 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

99 SILVERRADO i switched to relay with 1 of the other ones that had the same code and still nothing. do you know what wire should have power on the plug going into to pump. there is a black, gray, purple, and orange with black stripe- the only one that lights up with a test light is the purple one, and i would think that would be for the fuel guage since that is working. THANKS FOR THE INFO

Orange with black stripe should be the power wire (it should be the thickest wire in that bulk) also make sure that its NOT ground that's missing. That would be the black wire. Good luck

Where is the fuel cut off switch in a 99 plymouth breeze


There isn't one on a Plymouth. In the Power Distribution Center is the fuel pump relay, and 2 pertinent fuses: Fuse #8 is a 20 amp fuse, hot at all times, and is the power feed for the pump relay. Fuse #10 is a 10 amp fuse, and is hot in run or start, and is the feed to the coil side of the relay. So hold your finger lightly on the relay while someone cycles the key from off to on. If the wiring at the relay is good, you should feel the relay click. If you don't feel anything from the relay, first check fuse #10. If the fuses are good, but nothing from the relay, you will have to look into the wiring for the relay. There is the power feed from fuse #8, the feed out to the fuel pump, the coil feed in from fuse #10, and the ground wire out from the coil side which goes into the PCM.

My 99 jetta isn't blowing any air at all when I turn the ac on, or even the fans.


if I am understanding you right the fan isn't blowing anything. this could be a couple of things it could be a blown fuse, a bad relay, a bad switch, a bad fan motor, or a bad wire. I would start with checking the fuses and relay if they are all good I would see if there is power to the motor when it is on if there is power it is ether a bad motor or bad resistors if your fan runs on high but nothing else it is probably the resistors if nothing works it is probably the motor. if there is no power at the motor when there should be I would check for power at the switch if there is power going into the switch but no power coming out of the switch the switch is probably bad. if there is no power going to the switch you may have a brake in a wire if there is power coming out from the switch but no power at the fan you may have a brake in a wire if you suspect a brake in a wire you can test the resistance going throw the wire by setting a dvom to resistance and touching the positive lead to one end of a wire and the negative lead to the other end of the same wire high resistance bad wire no resistance good wire make sure there is no power going throw the wire when you test is though or it could throw off the test.

Head light problem


You will find that you only need 1 relay for each beam, your relay will have 5 terminals, 1 will have 2 terminals opposite, this is the hot wire from the battery and the 2 wires to the lights, there are 2 other wires opposite each other that come from your light power wire (switch wire) and the other is earth, repeating for the other bean, your relay unless you have a dual relay, they have 3 terminals on 1 side, they are light, hot wire, light and on the other side they have 2 wires that go to the lights, this unit earth through the housing

My 2003 Pontiac Sunfire wont start or turn over. I do have power.


READ THIS ALL BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING
NOTE: some vehicles have the starter relay and starter mounted together as 1 unit. Sometimes the starter relay and starter are seperate. When I refer to "relay" it could also mean the starter and relay as 1 unit.
Note: "starter switch" is not to be confused with "key switch", although sometimes they are all one unit. The starter switch is usually mounted on the steering column and actuated by a metal rod. On units that are all one unit, the keyswitch/starter switch (both one unit) will have to be replaced. (this is a rare problem, so don't get worried just yet)
1. Check battery voltage, should be between 12.5-14.5 volts. if low voltage replace or charge battery, and try to start car, if it don't crank with new or charged battery, move on.
2. Check connections on the starter relay, even the small one coming from your starter switch. if loose or corroded, clean with a brush and reconnect them. Try to start your car. Did it start? if not, Move on
3. Well now we know the connections aren't the problem. How about a click? did you hear one? If a click is heard, go to #4, if nothing is heard, go to #5
4. Well at least the relay is clicking, but nothing else is going on. The relay is working, so the starter must be bad. Replace the starter and start your car!
5. Humm, connections aren't the problem, maybe the relay is bad, replace your relay with a new one. Move on
6. Now we have a new relay, with clean and tight connections. Start your car. Does it start? If yes, then HORRAY! we fixed it. Does it click? If so then goto #7, If it don't click, then goto #8
7. So here we have a new relay, with good connections that will click when trying to start the car, but nothing else happens. Starter is faulty, replace the starter, and off you go, see ya!
8. So here we have a new relay, with good connections, but it still won't click when we try to start our car. This means that your starter switch is faulty. Replace starter switch and try to start your car. Vroom! finally done with this car problem!
List of shortcuts: if you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the relay and apply +12v to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. You can actually hook up a starter button this way. If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken.

99 chevy s10 replaced fuel pump but the new one is not getting power i ran a hot wire to the pump and it comes on in the tank so i know the pump works.i replaced the relay under the hood that said fuel...


It sounds like you are on the right track. Here are the basics for your pump. I took a guess at the engine size and went with a 4.3 V6, Hopefully that is it.

1. There is an ECM B fuse, 20amp that feeds one side of the relay.
2. You have already mentioned the relay. The other side of the relay feeds from the VCM or Vehicle control module.

Remove your relay and check pin #3.. You should have 12volts with key on. If not check the ECM B fuse.
If you cross pin#3 and #5 on at the relay location you should feed 12 volts to your pump and it should run. If it does not, look for a ground problem on the black pump wire or a broken wire between the relay and the pump. I show a gray power wire to the pump.

Hope this helps.. Best of Luck..

99 Ford F350 Powerstroke diesel; misfire code; loss of power


The first thing i would check is the Glow Plug Relay. Depending on your engine there should be (2 solenoids, or just one) sitting on the top front a little to the right of center. (right bank of engine that is) If you have 2 of them one should be smaller and it is the one furthest to the rear of the engine. It controls power to your glow plugs for cold start up. When you turn the key to the on position the 2 larger wires should both have power. When the ignition is off only one wire should have power. Check this if you do both these tests and only one wire has power with key on or off then you need to make sure that the key switch is sending power to the solenoid. Do this by checking the smaller wire with key off. It should not have power and then with key on it should have power. If this is good and test one is bad then the relay is bad. Note This is not true for the larger realy that sits furthest foward on the engine. The bigger one. This test will not work for it but it controls your intake heater. On another note: This is a timed circut and will "kick out" after about 1-2 minutes. In otherwords it does not stay on all the time that key switch is on it will for for about 1-2 minutes then shut off! Next would be your injectors are getting weak or bad and even your HPOP could be getting weak. or glow plugs in engine are out, In otherwords there are alot of possibilities causing your problems If you are getting a misfire code for your injectors then you may have some weak or inop injectors. Any way this will give you a pretty easy test for the most common failure which is the Glow plug relay. About 35-40 bucks at your local auto parts house.
