Keep blowing fuse for fuel pump

My suv stalled one day and would not start again. It would turn over but not start and the gas gauge would not move. There is 3/4 of a tank of gas in it. Replaced the fuse for the fuel pump and it started and blew again.

If it takes more than a couple of hours to blow the fuse its most likely the fuel pump. If it blows instantly you could have a grounded out feed wire (+) wire or a bad relay. Look in the haynes manual to get the location of the relay.

You probably have a bad fuel relay switch. It is located in the engine compartment in the fuse box. It costs about ten bucks and takes 2 minutes to change. I hate to say it but you probably didn't need a new fuel pump. If the relay is not the problem then it will be your fuel pressure regulator about $60. This part will affect your fuel gauge and cause intermittent starts and stalls or a no start. If your car sits for awhile the pressure will fall off and the car will start again but will not run well and it can stall out at anytime and not re-start.

The 20amp ga/idle fuse powers a hot fuel module which powers the oil pressure switch, the fuel pump relay, and the fuel gauge in the tank.
Any of the four components including the fuel pump can blow the fuse.

Fuse for fuel pump keeps blowing


Normally fuse blows off if more current passes through it than what it is designed for.

Probably it is worth checking what original fuel pump fuse amps requirements and have the same installed.

Also check the relay if there is a relay set for the fuel pump.

Good luck

Nissan announces recall of 747,000 trucks, SUVs in U.S. - Oct. 28, 2010. Nissan had a problem with defective relays. Faulty relays in the engine control module in Nissan vehicles cause engine performance issues including rough idle, engine stalling or inability to start vehicle. Call your local dealer and see if your vehicle is under this recall, you will need to supply your VIN number. If so, they will repair the problem at no cost.
Good luck, i hope this helps.

This truck is fuel injected, the problem sounds like a weak fuelpump, it runs when you pour gas into it until that gas runs out, the first thing is to test the fuel preasure, if the pump is weak it may run with gas poured into it but wont idle, also a common problem is the coolant temp sensor and the ground wires to thermostat housing bolt but i wont bet its the pump inside the fuel tank, if you put a fuel gauge on it there should be at least 55-61 psi if its a few pounds lower it can cause problems, you have everything else and it runs with gas poured so its a fuel problem check the preasure, theres a valve up top on the fuel line to connect a fuel gauge to it, start there hope this is helpful.

  1. Check the ignition switch condition and operation. The electrical contacts in the run position may be worn or damaged. Try restarting the engine with all electrical accessories in the off position. Sometimes turning the key on an off will help in emergency situations, however once the switch has shown signs of failure, it should be replaced as soon as possible.
  2. Check for loose, corroded, damaged or shorted wires for the ignition system and repair or replace.
  3. Check for manifold vacuum leaks or vacuum hose leakage and repair or replace parts as necessary.
  4. Measure the fuel pump delivery volume and pressure. Low fuel pump pressure can also be noticed as a lack of power when accelerating. Make sure the fuel pump lines are not restricted. The fuel pump output is not adjustable and requires fuel pump replacement to repair.
  5. Check the engine fuel and ignition management system. Inspect the sensor wiring and electrical connectors. A dirty, loose or damaged sensor or control module wire can simulate a failed component.
  6. Check the exhaust system for internal restrictions.

Drives fine and then won't start or stalls.


remove the cover from around the fuse box under the hood on the drivers side then try moving the wires around from the main fuse box where it runs down from the box to the top of the transmission, have somebody try to start the car while you are doing this and see if it starts up there is a splice that likes to get hot and quit working in the pink or red wire that powers a portion of the fuse box including the fuel pump fuse. look for a brown spot in the wire, if you can make it start by moving these wires around cut the brown spot out and re-splice them together using a **** connector. seen it a thousand times....
