Question about 1992 Chevrolet Astro Extended

Where is the fuse for the wiring to the fuel pump?

Once the fuel pump was changed I could no longer get the pump to operate.there was no power in the wires when checked with a tester. Is this a relay problem, or a fuse problem?

If it is a theottle body ,the relay is under hood on passenger side,above blower motor on firewall,third one in from the pass. side,if it a central port system,relay is under center console in dash,again third one in from pass.side...I would recheck the ground wire from the wiring harness for the pump by the plug in under van....when I changed my pump last time,I had to cut off end and clean frame to get a good ground....good luck...Lee

I need a gmc safari diagram for fuel pump 1991


I don't usually do diagrams due to copyright laws.
From the fuel pump you have a gray wire and a black wire.
The black is ground and the gray is power from both the pump relay and the oil pressure switch.
The oil pressure switch provides power to the pump once the engine starts.
At the relay, you have a green and white wire that provides power from the ECM with the key switch on. You have an orange wire that provides power from a 15amp fuse.
The gray wire going to the pump, and a black and white wire for ground for the relay.
The ECM provides power for 3 seconds when the key switch is turned on to boost line pressure for startup.

Car not getting fuel .


There is only one thing left. The wire connecting to the fuse box or the ground wire from the fuel pump. Try connecting a wire from the + side of the battery to the fuel pump directly. If that works, the feed wire is bad.

My 97 monte carlo will turn over but there isn't any power to fuel pump I know it works and I've changed all the fuses and relays and also got the key checked.... I don't get it also checked...


The ECM BAT fuse powers the fuel pump through the relay. If the gray wire has power and the black wire has ground, and the fuel pump does not operate, its bad.

I have no power to the fuel pump on my 1996 TBird. Where is the fuse for the fuel pump located.


Do this test first. With the drivers door opened in a nice quite area turn the ignition key to the ON position without starting the engine. You should hear the fuel pump operating for 5 seconds which is priming fuel to the engine. If not heard the engines oil pressure sensor is at fault. The third wire from this sensor links to the fuel pump to prime. When the engine reaches normal operation oil pressure range the computer shuts off that circuit and turns on the fuel pump relay for the pump to run. That relay stays on until you shut the engine off

No power to fuel pump,power on fuse and relay


Power will come from the ignition to the fuse to the relay before hitting the pump, you state that there is power to the fuse, then 2 things, firstly, try changing the fuel pump relay, secondly, it may be a broken connection in the wiring, check underneath to see if there has been damage to the wiring leading back to the pump or if a connector has been unplugged. Worst case, fuel pump itself may be dead, I hope this guide will help you, Good luck.

1988 subaru gl 1.8..no power to fuel pump, fuses and links are good. pump works fine with power probe, just not getting power to it..diagram shows black and yellow wire to pump. it is in fact a blue...


The blue wire changes to Blue/White. It gets power from the Fuel Pump Relay. Fuse number 11 is the power source. The relay is up under the dash panel, blue connector

2004 mazda wont start, blew a front tire and had to be put on rollback. Sat all nite, and now wont start. will crank and can smell fuel.


flooded engine common problem remove all plugs and fuel pump fuse. get fuel out of engine do not istall fuel pump fuse re install all plugs I suggest a good charger be used as system can kill batt very quick run to wires from fuel pump fuse into seating area start cranking the engine over wires not touching once compression sounds alright touch wires to geather (may have to repeat these deflooding wire touching procedure many times) once started do not turn off car till normal operating temp . Once hot turn car off remove wires and re install fuel pump fuse .With RX-8 u cannot just start and stop car right away as in washing car as it can produce this same condition ALWAYS let car warm up before turning off.

No fuel to engine


You should have 2 fuses, 1 marked ECM/IGN that is 10amp, and one marked ECM/Batt, that is 15amp. Make sure they are both good. Your GM vehicle probably also has a fuel pump/oil pressure switch also, that affects fuel pump operation . Engine dies, oil pressure drops in an accident, it shuts off fuel pump. You may want to try wd-40 sprayed into the throttle body intake a little at a time to try & start it, and run long enough to build up oil pressure, (couple of seconds.) otherwise look for a red wire near brake booster or drivers fender, that is for fuel pump testing. if you carefully,supply it with a 12v+ source it should start fuel pump and keep it running while you start it, and once running, remove the wire & see if it keeps going. Make sure your oil level is up too.

How to change a fuel pump in a 2000 chevy blazer


Good Day,

I am assuming that you have the 4.3L V6.

The fuel pump is always a pain on trucks becasue you have to remove the tank to gain access. The pump is bolted in on the top side of the tank. I hope it doesn't have a full tank of gas as it needs to be drained(re-use when job is complete). Not to mention pulling a tank that's full of gas very heavy.
See this link for an overview:

http://www.autozone.com/shopping/repairGuide.htm?pageId=0900c152800a13e9

http://www.autozone.com/shopping/repairGuide.htm?pageId=0900c152800a145a

Here's how you test the fuel pump relay, and fuel pump:

  1. Turn the ignition OFF.
  2. Remove the relay.
  3. Locate the two terminals on the relay, which are connected to the coil windings. Check the relay coil for continuity. Connect the common meter lead to terminal 85 and positive meter lead to terminal 86. There should be continuity. If not, replace the relay.
Fuel Pump
  1. Turn the ignition key OFF for ten seconds.
  2. Turn the ignition key to the ON position but do not start the engine.
  3. You should here the fuel pump operate for two seconds (a light electrical humming sound).
  4. Apply a 12 volt fused jumper wire to the fuel pump prime (test) connector. This should be located in the driver's side of the engine compartment. The fuel pump should operate.
  5. If the fuel pump does operate, remove and test the relay. If the relay is defective, replace the relay and repeat the test.
  6. If the relay is operating properly, connect a grounded test light to the fuel pump relay control wire (green with white stripe) at the relay. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. The test light should illuminate for two seconds and go out. If the test light does not illuminate, check the relay control wire for continuity and repair as necessary, then repeat the test.
  7. Connect a grounded test light to the feed wire (orange) at the relay and turn the ignition key ON. The test light should illuminate. If the light does not illuminate, test feed wire for continuity and the fuse in the underhood fuse relay center. Repair as necessary and repeat the test.
  8. If the fuel pump is still not functioning, connect a fused jumper wire between the feed (orange) wire and the fuel pump motor (gray) wire at the relay. The pump should operate.
  9. If the pump does not operate, check the fuel pump motor wire for continuity and repair as necessary.
  10. If the pump will still not operate, replace the pump.
  11. If the pump does operate, start the vehicle and remove the relay. The vehicle should continue to run. If the vehicle stalls, check the fuel pump/oil pressure switch and its wiring. Repair as necessary and repeat the test.
Also see figure 4 which is digram 3 from this link, this is the schematic on the fuel pump, the fuel pump's hot wire is tan with a white stripe, if you can test the voltage of this wire you can confirm it is not an electrical problem.

Also be sure to releive the fuel pressure before servicing

http://www.autozone.com/shopping/repairGuide.htm?pageId=0900c152800a1468


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Loosen the fuel filler cap to relieve fuel tank pressure.
  3. Connect fuel pressure gauge J-34730-1A or its equivalent to the pressure connection. Wrap a shop towel around the fitting while connecting the gauge to prevent spillage.
  4. Install the bleed hose into an approved container and open the valve to bleed the system. The system is now safe for servicing.
  5. Drain any fuel remaining in the gauge into an approved container.
Let me know if any of this is jibberish to you and I can clarify further.

Good Luck again, and feel free to ask anymore questions.
