Probably the switch at the injector pump may be faulty thus not opening to allow the diesel, check tht switch you should get a click sound once you turn the ignition 'on'.
Hope this helps!

Doesn't have one . Looking at a wiring diagram to view fuel pump electrical circuit would show that . Do you know what automotive electrical wiring diagrams are ? Do you know how to use one along with a DMM - digital multi-meter to test electrical circuit's ? The fuel pump is controlled by the PCM - engine computer by energizing the fuel pump relay .

Need a wiring diagram for map sensor in 2006 Jeep Liberty 4x4 3.7L

Go to autozone and ask for the wiring diagram. They will print one for you for free. If you dont have an autozone near you try another parts store. If you purchase a haines of chiltons manual ($25 in a retail store or $18 on amazon), it will have a detailed wiring diagram of the MAP sensor.

Good Luck!

Thanks jamie for your feed back. what u said to check has been done. could it be the fuel shut off valve? is so could it be by passed?

Don't know what Jamie answered-- but only Ford Products
have Fuel Safety Shut Off Switches

Keep in mind those switches only activate in a serious crash,
so you have to know the fuel system & have wiring diagrams,
to have a place to start testing

I replaced the fuel pump, harness, filter, distributor ,cap ,rotor, and relay. my 96 chevy suburban still doesnt start. i dont hear the fuel pump motor but the relay is working. dont know what to do n

BYM, Back Yard Mechanic...You will need a Mechanics Manual...Chilton's, Haines, or OEM...Look thru the wiring diagrams, BEFORE you start dicing, and far as your real problem...did you replace the Ignition Control Module, that is inside the Distributor cap??? It's Black, and has several wires that attach to it...those are the 1st thing you want to look at, before you start messing with the fuel delivery system, Buy A New ICM, or 2, and replace it, it's good to keep a spare around (in your vehicle). You will need a 7 mm socket, w/extension, and obviously, a driver of some sort, ratchet, or nut driver type. Good Luck.

Have a 1997 gmc k1500,5.7liter tbi.starts fine runs a few min.then stalls,have no codes coming up on the scanner,fuel pump does hum when you turn key on,changed fuel filter,checked dist cap and wires,dont...

Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve, the valve is along the fuel line by the distributor cap and there should be 62 to 65 PSI. Anything different will give you a not start or run, The other things too that would stall the engine would be a faulty oil pressure sending unit, anything less then 4 psi will shut the engine down and a faulty ignition module will do this too. Once the module heats up it fails, it's common for moisture to develop in the distributor and corrosion occurs to the wires leading to the module. Start with the simple and check the fuel pressure and then to the gauges, like the oil and then the ignition module. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you resolve the issues to your GMC.
