What shuts off power to fuel pump when key is turned off on a 94 GMCwith 350 engine

Power is fed to the pump by a fuel pump relay. The relay is powered by a fuse but is triggered by the computer. So when you turn the key on, the computer triggers the relay, the relay closes and turns on the fuel pump. Power is cut off only when the key is shut off and the computer kills the trigger signal to the relay

Runs for a few seconds and then quite

It could be a fuel pump issue, do you hear the fuel pump run when you turn the ignition to run position? Just turn the key to on (turn the radio off and buckle the seat belt so you can hear better) you should be able to hear the fuel pump. It will be a hum from the rear of the car, the pump should run for 3-5 seconds then shut off.

My '94 Econoline van's ignition is stuck on ON. I can pull the key out and still drive. The switch is loose and can be moved back and forth without key

hey, i just bought a 88 econoline off a guy who sold it to me because he couldn't shut it off- key turns-does nothing, just like yours.

the next few days it will be my project to figure it out.

one thing i learned is do not disconnect the battery while the ignition is stuck- major electrical damage can occur.

the guy i bought it from did that and i think he fried some fuses.

i will post solution when i figure it out.

also try to find a fuse and pull it out- the fuel pump fuse would be best.

join my thread on this issue at:

and let me know if and how you fixed it.

No gas or spark

Try your inertia switch in the cargo area in back. Its located on the passenger side rear wheel well. Push the button.

Engine won't shut off '91 Escort GT

Check the fuse box is not full of water.
Thet suffered from leaking windscreens, and it filled the fuse box.
If not, you are looking at a faulty ignition switch.
