First, the ground wire coming from the fuel pump needs to be checked for proper grounding. Next the fuel pump power supply wire needs to be checked for chafing or exposed wiring that could short out. If all checked out well, you may need to update the fuel pump harness that plugs to the pump. It comes with a bigger gauge wire to handle the electrical load without popping fuses. This was common on these.

Fuel pump fuse always blows

disconnect the fuel pump and place a new fuse in the holder if it still blows go back to the relay and disconnect it and fit a new fuse. In the first instance if the fuse stays good the replace the fuel pump as you have a dead short in it.. If it blows at the relay replace the relay as the short will be there.

My son has a 2000 gmc sierra.. the truck was running often low on gas and when he recently turned the truck off whenever you attempt to start the truck when u turn the key over it blows the ecm-b fuse. ...

That fuse powers several things, including the fuel pump relay.
You would need to disconnect the harness at the pump and see if the fuse still blows.

My girl's '99 Hyundai Sonata all windows are stuck. I replaced the blown fuse, but the new one blew too. I watched a third fuse while someone else turned the key to the "on" position, and the...

Hi, I wouldn't open the door just yet. Not sure what you have now that someone has "made it to work," but below is the stock setup. I'm assuming the fuse that is blowing is the 10 amp fuse #16 in the dash fuse box. There is a relay in the passenger compartment relay box that you need to check. First pull the relay out and put a fresh fuse in. Does the fuse still blow when you turn the key on? If yes, suspect the fuse box itself has a short, or the wiring is not as it should be. If not, suspect the relay has a short--try another relay (you can borrow a similar relay from somewhere else in the car for troubleshooting). Please try this, and we'll go from there.

Has spark but doesnt fire up

Possible cause would be no fuel to injectors. turn the key to the on position and listen for the fuel pump to come on and pressurize the fuel rail. If you do not hear the pump come on then look in the fuse/relay box for a blown fuse/relay. If you hear the fuel pump come on then turn the key off after the pump has completed running and disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Go to the fuel rail and there will be a round test port,remove the black plastic cap(like a valve stem cap on a tire) using a shop towel partly cover the port. Using a very small screw driver press down on the valve stem, if the fuel comes out at a high volume then the pump and filter is ok. If not then replace fuel filter, that is if you heard the pump come on in the first place. If you never heard the pump come on and the fuse/relay was ok then the pump will have to be replaced. hope this will help you.

The car died on me in the middle or the road . The #1 fuse blows

Check your ignition/fuel pump relay---it's with all the other relays in a dash tray---it's ORANGE---check it for dead-short.

Main Fuel Pump

Fuses mean short somewhere.Fuse is always live it feeds relay but in tank pump [ fuse#4or#6 i forget anyway visa versa ] is not live until this.Relay clicks once when key tuned to on and once more when key turned to crank engine it is under dash by glove box and loud enough for someone with ear at this spot to hear.In tank pump should not be live until engine starts to crank.
