Relay should be in a fuse box under the hood. Check the right and left side next to the fender wells. If you find that the relay will not correct the problem then the fuel pump when out.

2000 GMC Jimmy starts then dies right away, other times runs fine


It could either be your fuel pump or the spark coil sensor..the coil spark sensor is located in the left side of your engine towards back ..this is the part that has a spark plug wire that comes from your distributor cap and to your coil. next to the coil there is a aluminum spark sensor that is mounted with two small screws and is has a measurement oF 2 x 2 inches . well this is sensor that sends information to your vehicles memory and safe functions panel..and if this is not functioning then the computer is inputting negative information on the spark to your engine and it will start to cause unstable starting complications, this spark sensor will send negative spark intervals to the vehicles system , then your system functions will start to stop working, it will shut off ,then its okay to start ect. its function purpose is to tell engine !! you better not start because you're not getting constant spark to burn the fuel and you're not going anywhere!!! if this is not working properly then these are some of the symptoms you might just be getting ..i hope this is a start on your research solution to your suv ..it was a solution that helped me resolve my problem on my 2000 jimmy SLE that i you just posted..part of my research also indicated that others causing this would be, spark plugs were not good and to check them , make sure to check spark plug wires , gas pump going faulty , gas filter,fuel injectors were dirty,and last one the air filter..good luck !! my total time and effort expense was about 1 hour in research and about 80.00 in parts cost and 30 min. in personal labor time..its a simple repair if your a hands on person , there is no under the hood work and there is no disassembling nothing but unscrewing 2 screws with star drivers # 15 or 20 / or straight philips screw driver..its a piece of cake!! NOTE:This is only a tip not a solution based from my experience ,this was my personal solution to my 2000 jimmy SLE when having similar issues..make sure you make the proper research and have at least had 3 to 4 opinions from professional or knowledgeable people before conducting any work . its better to be safe than having to find yourself in a dangerous situation..good luck and god bless.

2001 jimmy sle. I just replaced the fuel pump. Fuel guage works. Pump does not. Checked fuel pump relay- its ok. Trucks turns over but won't start. Whats next?


Test for ground and power at your fuel pump connector. Also, the sending units sometimes come without the pump itself wired in. You have to actually splice in connections sometimes. If you get stuck, dropping the tank again and removing the sending unit to inspect could be your next step.

We put a new fuel pump in daughters 96 GMC Jimmy SLE and sometimes it just quits running then starts back up after sitting. Is this model fuel injected, could a spider be bad, could it be a vacuum problem,...


It could be a fuel problem but it sounds more like an ignition problem. Check to make sure you have spark after it stalls. If not you have a problem with an ignition component. I it does make sure there is fuel pressure.

Have a 96 gmc jimmy, yesterday filled up at the pump but the gauge reads empty, (bobbed around previously) i heard a whistling sound emirnating from around the gas tank but drove ok, today it cut off...


check for any vacuum leaks which are often the culprits of whistling noises, as for the fuel problem check the fuel pump for pressure, also,, check the filter

O have a 96 Jimmy starts if u poor gas down it but will only run half throttle give it more and it cuts out change fuel filter what else could it be please help me


Check your fuel pump. Take the gas cap off, have someone turn the key to "run", and listen. You should hear the fuel pump humming for a few seconds, and then stop. If you don't hear a humming, you will likely need to change the fuel pump.
New ones are a ridiculous price for that truck. Try an auto wrecker. Let me know how you make out.

MOST LIKELY THE FUEL PUMP HAS FAILED, WHEN U TURN THE KEY TO RUN POSITION DO U HEAR A HUMMING NOISE FROM THE FUEL TANK? THIS NOISE WILL STOP IN ABOUT 5 SECONDS, U CAN HEAR IT BETTER BY TAKING OFF THE GAS CAP AND LISTENING THERE, IF U HEAR NOTHING THEN THE PUMP WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED.
