Not getting fuel to carberator and fuse #2 problem.
My truck wouldn't start, I think it wasn't getting any gas even though the gas tank is full. Then the battery went dead from trying trying to start it. Then I noticed a strange sound comming from behind the dash, it sounded like a light ticking but, it began to tick faster. I opened the fuse box and pulled out the fuse from slot #2 and the ticking stopped. I then replaced the 20 amp fuse with a nes one and the ticking started again. The The #2 fuse is labelled "20 A CTSY". Could this fuse have something to do with no gas problem? I replaced the fuel pump appox 18 months earlier.

Re: not getting fuel to carberator and fuse #2 problem.
#2 has nothing to do with engine. It's the courtesy lights and such. #9 is the fuel pump. You'll have to see if you have power to your fuel pump. If it's working you should hear it cut in for a few seconds when you first turn your key to the "on" position. If you hear nothing, it's either burnt out again, or the power wire to it is faulty.

Many things can make it stop and not restart. Even though the gas gauge reads it may be false and the car could be out of gas. The gas tank could have water in it especially if you just got gas from a station. If you think that there is water in the tank add a bottle of "heat" or tank dryer to the tank. A bad fuel filter or low fuel pressure, bad ecm(computer), bad ignition module or ignition components(coil etc), bad fuel injectors, bad crankshaft position sensor, bad ignition switch, bad relay(s) or blown fuse(s), security system/ignition key, or bad connector(s)/wiring issues. The best place to start is checking the fuses and scanning the computer for codes.
the problem maybe a problem with fuel pickup at 1/2 tank, if the line has blockage, the filter is clocked up, the leveling or device that keeps track of fuel level is defective, there issue with the floater, the part that suppose to float has or full of fuel and when it gets to 1/2 tank, the floater full of fuel and sinks like your out of gas.
i think most likely clogged fuel filter in the fuel tank if your car has this type of system.
if not the fuel filter most of the time its near intake of the injectors, underneath the drivers seat under the car.
or by the inlet and outlet of the fuel tank.
fuel pump is in the tank & can be heard for 2 seconds when key is turned on. there is no reset but by listening at gas cap you can hear if pump runs or not. spray carberator cleaner in throtle body(carberator) to see if it helps with starting. there is a test port to check fuel pressure if you think its a fuel problem & carb cleaner helps it start
When your replaced the pump did you replace the fuel filter? You may have a fuel pump relay causing you some grief. I believe it is located in the engine compartment in the fuse center on the left inner fender. Check the relay and any related fuses. Check the electrical connection at the pump. They had problems with some of them and they would get kind of hot and distort and corrode. They have new updated ones that can be easily installed.
without starting the engine position the key to the on position. you can hear the fuel pump operationing for 4 to 6 seconds upon having the key on. if not heard running check the fuel pump fuse, the fuel pump relay, and the engines oil pressure switch. they all work the pump you see the engine oil pressure switch runs the pump untill the engine reaches normal pressure once the pressure is reached to the normal range the computer shuts that circuit off and turns the fuel pump relay on
Your right to think about gas but the fuel pumps fail all kinds of crazy ways. The easy way to cheack to see if its the pump is to listen to the tank ( with your ear right against it ) and turn the key on to here the pump come on. If you don't hear anything and the hearing it'self is OK then with someone trying to start the car bang on the tank to shake it and see if the pump will come back on (sometimes they quit altogether and this won't work) The vehical may start right up. If it does the pump is still bad even thogh its running and may not restart as early as the next ry or even quit while running as it already did to you. Rember evven though the gauge says theres gas there may not be be as someone could have stole it and the gauge got bent during the theif. Do'nt look in with a lit match just cause you saw it on TV. Shake the car with a funnell in the fuel cap and listen for gas slushing around. Nothing or slight your out. Listen for the pump this way as it'll really hum in the funnell even full of gas
