Truck was turned over on side blowed ecm fuse replesd it truck run good for 15 min then died now no fuel pressure at all fuses all good

It could be the fuel pump or just the fuel pump relay, try reseting the relay / breaker on the top of the firewall. Also have someone lister at the gas tank with the cap off when you turn on the key and see it they hear the fuel pump come on. Chevy's have loud pumps and are easy to hear. If it doesn't come on, try the reset or you may need a new pump. Sitting on its side could have run it dry and cause it to go bad.

Battery checked, has gas, oil, all fluids and belts are good what else should we check

If the engine turns over use starting fluid and see if it starts. It sounds like your fuel pump is bad. You could try banging on the bottom of the fuel tank and see if you could knock a little life in it. It worked for me a few times.

Replaced fuel pump, sometimes it will start and sometimes it won't. Disconnect the battery and it will start again and runs O.K. Is there a relay that resets it self when the battery gets disconnected.

No, the fuel pump relay does not reset when the power is removed, unless there is something wrong.

Try to locate the fuel pump relay with the following fuse box diagrams and wiggle it to make sure it is seated well.

Where reset switch for fuel pump is located

I know there is not one on the 96 models. I fought a fuiel pump related issue on our 96. There are several sensors that must be working before the fuel pump will run. Start with the crankshaft sensor, then look at the camshaft sensor, finally there is a relay that actually runs the fuel pump. The relay should be under the hood with the fuses.

Dodge dosen't use reset switches on the fuel pump circuit. The only company I know of that does is Ford and Ford companies like Mazda and Jaguar.

Hope helps.

Fuel pump want run

fuel pump relay is in the underhood fuse panel does it get power?the pump is a failing pump by design. as long as the system is running the spark then the fuel pump should be directed on. the crash switch could be actirvaed and its in the floorboards in the passgerger side just at the top of the carpethas a red button on the top just press it and if it clicks the pump will be reset

Fuel pump fuse?

You won't hear the fuel pump come on with the key switch because they are engineered to NOT pump unless the engine is running so that you don't set yourself and the world on fire if you get in a bad wreck. Some units fire with distributor pulses and ALL will have have a wreck reset device that you can not find so far.

Perhaps that is what was wrong with the first pump? The wreck reset device is inertia triggered to forever kill the fuel pump until manually reset or replaced, you MUST find it where ever it is. It might have been damaged electrically by the first pump? You possibly have a computer failsafe in operation preventing you from starting your engine until the RESET device is reset properly?

I have a 2002 chevy blazer 4.3L that wont start i have replaced the fuel pump, PCM, checked the fuel pump relay and fuel filter. If i run a jumper wire from the fuel pump wire to the battery it wil start...

are you using the original key ?? sounds wear but in the key switch there is a sensor that detects if the right key is in use otherwise it will kill the power to the fuel pump or it can be a fuse look under the left rear passanger seat there is another set of fuses and the other set of fuses are on the driver side near the door and there is another set of fuses and relays inside the hook next to the battery

Help w 1994 chevrolet truck

This injector set-up needs a specific fuel pressure supplied to the fuel rail to even start, much less run properly. The fuel pump is immersed in fuel inside the gas tank to keep it cool and not burn up. Running the fuel level low causes more heat in the pump and interuptions in proper fuel pressure. AC/Delco pumps have proven to be a reliable fix, the aftermarket pumps only last for a month or two sometimes. Check fuel pressure under the hood and power and ground to fuel pump at electrical harness at top of gas tank. This truck needs a fuel pump.
