Question about Chevrolet Lumina APV
I have not heard how to solve this problem. I have disconnected both relay and pump together.. and still blow the fuse when the key is turned past the first stage of ignition. This vech, started to blow fuses soon after I got it second hand..First it was 1 a week then it would blow as I drove..sitting parked..cold..hot..summer...winter. 100 plus fuses later and it sits...dead. No new work done to it ..nothing...it just now likes to eat fuses
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.

the fuel pump comes on when you turn the key on the starter comes on when you turn all the way to start so i would think the short is in the fuel pump if it blows by just turning the key on
