Question about Cars & Trucks
2000 Pontiac Montana. I just replaced the fuel pump in the car and it will not fire. I also replaced the battery if that has any bearing at all. Sounds dumb, but the way electronics are in some of these cars, it's hard to day. The pump is an ACDelco as well
Use a code reader to reset the CPU program as replacing the battery sometimes corrupts the program. When you use the code reader see i9f there are any faults recorded and fix what shows up

make sure you have power getting to your starter when you crank. check the small nut on the starter. should have 12 v or very close to it. this will tell you if your getting power to the starter or if somethign before the starter and something maybe with your anti theft system or not. its hard to say online cause of that anti theft. doest the light flash at all? the anti theft light?
if your getting power to the starter when you crank make sure your getting good power to the starter by turning on the head lights and see if they dim. a good starter will cause the headlites to dim when attempting to start. if nothing dims check connections. or assume bad starter motor. make sure your also getting power to the main starter stud as well.

SOURCE: Van won't start
There is a port on your fuel rail,Its like a tire valve push on it a see if fuel is coming out.If it isn't you will need to replace fuel filter first, If you still don't have pressure you are going to have to replace fuel pump.If you can hear the pump it doesn't mean that it is working.It does mean you have elec to it.you need at least 35lbs pressure to fire injectors.You will need to check for spark at spark plugs to.after these test repost and we can solve this problem
