Question about 1992 Chevrolet Suburban

92 Chevy Suburban Electrical Fuel System

We just replaced the fuel pump on our suburban after it died while driving down the road. It cranks but won't turn over, checked the throttle body, no gas pumping in. Replaced the relay, still no luck. We are getting power to the relay, but nothing to the fuel pump itself. Bad relay switch?

    There is no hum, and I don't know if my husband hears a click at the relay, I don't believe he does. He has been using a test light, and on the outgoing wire, he is not getting any juice

    When you turn the key on to the run position, do you here the relay "click" and the fuel pump "hum" for 2 to 3 seconds?

    You may need an extra person to turn the key to on and you listen under the hood for the relay.

    Let me know.

I assume the fuel pump fuse is good?
The only time voltage will be sent to the fuel pump will be the first 2 to 3 seconds if the starter is not engaged. You will want to crank the engine over and check for voltage on the load side of the relay, circuit #30 at the relay.
Let me know after you check.

Engine dies

if it shuts off while driving down the road. and restarts after 10 minutes, its usually a bad crank sensor that does this. it messes up timing and shuts off fuel supply.

We have a 2002 Chevy Suburban and it cuts out while driving down the road, about 20-30 mins after starting the vehicle. We've cleaned the fuel filter. As soon as we crank it up it'll run for 20 mins than...

there is code that does not turn on the service engine soon. have code retrieve.And when the problems occured have fuel pressure check.You have to find out if the problem is electrical or fuel and air .Another way to find it is move engine harness while engine running if it stall could be short to ground or wire cut open

My suburban quit running while driving down the road. Seems like not getting fuel. Changed fuel filter. Still no go. How can I determine if it is a pump.

Ah, the famous Chevy fuel pump death in the fuel tank. This is a HAZARDOUS job. Unless you are a sharp mechanic (I assume you're not or you wouldn't be asking about the fuel pump test) I'd take it to the dealer. Sorry.

It's either the fuel pump or your engine control unit. Try hot wiring the pump and see if it works. If it does you need a new brain.
