Don't do it. its to much work. just take the relay and use some pliers to twist the prongs don't bend but twist so they are on a 30 degree angle then push it in. this will make a good connection forever. a little dielectric grease will also help the connection

I have a 92 cavalier. I hit a hard bump and the car shut down. Fuel pump will run, but not when you turn the key, only when you supply power to the test wire.

There should be a relay for the fuel pump under the hood, you may have burned that out when you hit the bump. If it is burned out then you have to look at why it did it. Hitting a bump shouldn't have caused it to happen unless you might have broken a ground when hitting the bump.

I hit a bump and my 1998 astro van quit running and the gas gauge went way past full and now the fuel pump doesnt run

the ground fell off of the fuel pump or the plug came loose. its between the tank and frame. pull the wires down until u see the connector. unplug clean and plug in. I would check the fuse and relay first. usually there is another relay that is the same as the fuel pump in fuse box. switch them and see if it works

2001 Grand Prix stalls at random times?

I would start by checking your wiring connections at fuel pump, check for corrosion, or loose fir male to female, then I would check your ground wires for fuel pump and engine also. you could have a wire hanging by a thread in the fuel harness or a ground wire that is making poor connection and when you hit the brakes possibly pulling ground for brake lights from fuel pump circuit, got to be something fairly simple but intermittent problems are the hardest to find, also check fuel pump relay and connections it plugs into. if can't visibly see anything then time to get the dig. volt meter and start checking wires from point A to Point B this will take time but it's about your only chance of figuring it out.

Auto shut down from hitting a bump- no fuel pump or ignition - voltage gauge not working

You have a ASD relay (Auto shut down relay) this is not a safety device you basically knock something loose.Turn the key on do you hear the fuel pump go on. If you dont check the fuses for a open condition and fusable link that are on the battery with key on wiggle battery negative terminal especially at the engine block and the frame ,same with the Positive part of the battery terminal .

94 buick century 3.1L replaced fuel pump relay no power to relay why? checked all fuses. was not getting power to fuel pump. red wire going to relay with female connection not pluged in ,what is that used...

The fuel pump relay is twice fused. The relay power is provided through a fusible link connected at the starter post that the positive battery cable connects to; and there is an in-line fuse inside a cube shaped plastic box near the relay. Either the fusible link or the inline fuse is blown, or there is a break in the wire that runs from the stater post to the relay.

I hit a bump with my rodeo and it just quit running and i don't hear the fuel pump kicking on when i turn the key on any ideas?

Check the power wires on the fuel pump and make sure that it is pumping fuel to the engine.

Its a possibility that something under the hood could have come loose when you hit that bump.

Check everything, all electrical connections, and all fuses.

1987 gmc jimmy wont start

yea you have no fuel and sound like a bad harness and the gm's are know for there fuel pump harness's! did you change it when you changed the pump? there is a lose connection somewhere in the fuel delivery system and it's pretty simply! i would check the fuel pump relay on the left hand side of the engine compartment and maybe even put power to the pump at the relay position "b" on the fuel pump relay harness and there should be a one pin connector to put power to also connected to the same position on the relay "b" the wire should be tan and white! good luck
