Did you change the pump? It may be drawing too much current and causing the fuse to blow... My recommendation is to replace that if you continue to have this problem OR unplug the fuel pump and see if it still blows... then it is a shorted wire!

Hello mcammdf.
To properly test the fuel gauge circuit you will need to check the purple wire at the connector to the fuel tank.
Run a wire from the purple wire at the connector to body ground. If the gauge moves when you ground it the circuit to that point is good.
These cars are noted for fuel gauge problems and most probably the issue will be the sending unit in the fuel tank.

Where is the inertia switch located on the 2005 pontiac sunfire

Hello kmcwil: My name is Roger and I will be glad to help you. On this particular car there is no inertia switch. The PCM or ECM controls the function of the fuel pump. Located under the hood you will find a fuse box. You will find a relay that is marked fuel pump. These two are all that controls the fuel pump. Also check the ECM,ignition and fuel pump fuses.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the quality of your answer. This way I know the information helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Keep blowing 20 amp fuse to fuel pump when turning on sunfire

Fuel pump relay is bad or fuel pump is bad (sometimes the pump seizes) and creates a load thats blowing the fuse.If both are good then there's a short in the fuel pump circuit.

1988 PONTIC LAmans i turn kev on and it blows the fuel pump fuse, already changed pump, still blowing fuse.

How's the fuel lines/system? looks like you may have a blocked line or fuel filter as the pump needs to continue running and if no circulation back to tank safety procedures kick in i.e. fuse blow.
Hope this helps?
