I would guess starter fuse first, then starter. When you turn key, if you don't hear a click, you should focus your attention on the fuse first and then the starter. If you hear a click, then most likely (80%) its the starter solenoid. try to start the car in neutral to rule out the neutral safety switch...good luck

Does anyone have any idea where the fuel pump relay is at on a 1987 GMC Sierra EFI pick up truck and how to know if it's the relay or the fuel pump that's gone bad? Any help will be appreciated!


It's in the engine bay somewhere. Here are the 5 wire colors to it: 1) tan & white, 2) orange, 3) black & white, 4) dark green & white, 5) red.

The surest way to test the fuel pump is to hook up a voltmeter or test light on the pump wire at the fuel tank connector-on the harness side, not the tank side. Then see if the pump wire has power with the engine cranking over. If it has power, but won't make the pump work when connected, then most likely your pump is bad. Turning the key to ON will also make the pump come on for 2 seconds (to prime the system), but it is easy to miss that signal, so check for power with the engine cranking.

Look around in the engine compartment, and up around the firewall on driver's side. Look for a red wire with I think a green connector on it. This wire will not be connected to anything. It is the pump prime, for test purposes. If you put 12 volts battery juice into the connector, it should make your fuel pump come on.

Kia sportage cranks but seldom starts??


Have you checked the fuel pump relay to see if it is sending power to the pump ? The computer grounds the relay when the computer "sees" oil pressure or engine RPM.

Ran out of fuel how do you prime or bleed it to start again


Just put gas in the tank, turn the key until the power to dash lights etc come on to prime fuel pump. Then crank the engine until it starts. It shouldnt take more than 1 minute or 2 .

2004 Rio. It just died on me while I was coming to a stop at traffic lights. It would not start so I tried roll start but wouldn't kick over. I had a mobile mechanic look at it and he said the engine...


If you try to start it and it turns over at all then its not seized. The solution may be as simple as a new fuel filter or a new fuel pump.

2004 kia rio cinco, will turn over but not start, light come on


There are some possibilities which you will have to check in this case:--
1) First of all check the power and voltage to the battery. With meter it will show exact 12 volt if the battery is charged. If the voltage is less get the battery charged at local auto repair shop. If the battery is internally drained and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.
2) When you crank the car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? If no then its time to check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.
3) The other thing to check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car. If the battery is charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the car. But if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not start.
4) The other thing to check in this case is fuel in the car. If there is fuel in the car then check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.
5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it’s a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Loss Of Power & Unable to Crank Beyond 2-3 Seconds...


You have an issue with your throttle actuator, try cleaning in the area with carb cleaner but more than likely the actuator will have to be replaced
