Is there a fuel reset on a 97 cavalier


I've never heard of a said fuel reset but their are fuel pump relays! Can you hear the fuel pump humming when ignition is turned on? If not Google fuel relay positions and feel the relays when keys turned on and you should feel a clock or something in relays also you can switch a cpl around to see if it fixes your problem!

Drove to the store last night had no indications of any problems. Got in it this morning and it cranks over good but will not start? Here's things I have already checked/tested - fuses( coil,ignition, fuel...


If you turn the key from off to run ( do not start ) does the theft light go out ?
How did you check the fuel pump relay ? My 2001 at ~ 35K miles the fuel pump relay went out, I checked it by swapping the trailer tow adapter reverse lamp relay into the place of the fuel pump relay.
The thing I am drawing a blank on, and you seem to confirm what I think, is the fuel pump relay is removable in the '02. Must be the '03 when the fuel pump relay became integrated into the fuel panel ( non serviceable ).

If you jumper the fuel pump relay, does it turn on ( red line in picture below )

You need a new fuel pump relay. The engine fires up and runs off the oil pressure switch untill the oil pressure PSI is reached at normal operating conditions. When the oil pressure reaches its operating PSI the PCM or engines computer will shut off that circuit and turns on the fuel pump relay to run the fuel pump untill you shut the engine off

03 cavalier starts then dies


Generally when this happens all the time the fuel pump relay has gone bad. Upon starting any GM car up the fuel pump operates off the third wire on the oil pressure switch. When the oil pressure reaches operating pressure which happens in a few seconds the computer shuts off the current from the oil pressure sending unit and opens the circiut flow to the fuel pump relay. The relay will run ythe fuel pump until you shut the engine off. Replace the fuel pump relay and you shall have a good running car again

03 cavalier w/ no fuel at fuelrail or in lines (fuel pump)


Could be a fuel pump relay or fuse. These are both located in the engine compartment fuse box. I would check these both out. If one of those isnt the culprit I will help you push it off the cliff. Thanks for using fixya!
