Changed fuel pump not pumping fuel not working correctly relay good getting power second fuse for fuel pump not working one wire fuel pump in back getting weal power 97 Saturn sl2


If I understand your post correctly you have a fuse for the fuel pump that is blown or blowing. Until you resolve that issue the fuel pump probably will not get enough power to run. If it blows when you replace it the you have a wiring problem to your fuel pump. Most replacement gm fuel pumps come with a replacement plug for the fuel pump. Make sure you use it if yours did as there have been lots of problems with the wiring plug being damaged due to the high current draw of the fuel pump.

Fuel pump wont run with key in on position,only when its cranking.


You know that how?

What testing told you that?

I would only be guessing (that is all we do here)

But it sounds as though the ignition switch is worn
& effects the fuel pump circuit, when in the on position,maybe!

Get yourself a wiring diagram & see how the system should work,
then test it at different points that are accessible

I replaced the fuel pump on my 2004 1500 5.7 liter. Started at first but only ran at idle for a few seconds and died. Now i have no fuel pressure at all. Also the wiring connection at top of fuel pump


gotta start with the color code of the wiring. verify that is correct first. you have to have fuel pressure for it to run obviously so make sure you wired it correctly. Here is the color code according to Mitchell OnDemand
black/orange= ground for fuel pump
orange/red=power on for fuel pump(only gets triggered from fuel pump relay)
dark blue/white= signal to pcm for fuel level
dark blue/ dark green= ref voltage

If that is ok then check for relay activation. Fuse 17 is the power source for that relay. If you have a good fuse but no relay activation you could throw a relay at it but if that doesnt do it then its gotta go to a shop. But if you are curious....
Relay code
pin 30= hot at all times
pin 86= relay control trigger from the pcm
pin 85= hot in run or start
pin 87= power source to fuel pump.(i.e. orange/red wire)

the relay will have numbers on it designating the correct pins. Get that right first then move on to the next. I'll be here. Good luck!

You need to troubleshoot the relay and terminals. First try a different relay. Another relay in your car may be same part number relay as you pump relay, so check for that. Swap in a known good relay and try it.
If no help, look at relay. Is it 4 terminal or 5 terminal? If 4 terminal, easier to check. One terminal will be your power source, and hot at all times, so check for that-use your jumper wire (if no testlight or voltmeter), stick end in terminal and just touch metal, looking for spark indicating power. If no terminal has power, maybe only hot with key on, so turn key on and check for power. If no power, the feed from battery to fuse block is lost. If you have one power source, another terminal will be to the pump, the one you turned pump on with. Terminals 3 and 4 will be the signaling source to turn relay on through coil side of relay, and a terminal to ground, also on the coil side of relay. If you have constant power on one terminal, check for the signaling power. When the car is cranking over, the signal terminal should be hot-the signal will be coming from engine computer. So when cranking, relay socket should have two hot terminals. If you don't have two, you're right, relay is not getting correct power to the fuse block. BTW, don't use jumper wire to check for signaling source, use a testlight. Don't want to cause spark from computer wire.
What is EGI? Not familiar with that.

did you check the fuse for the fuel pump you don`t say.there is also a fuel pump relay in the system.if you bypass the system then the ecm won`t have control for the pump,which controls the 2 second prime at the beginning when key turned on and it won`t shut off the pump in case of an accident when the engine stops.you can bypass it but its not recommended because this.if you do bypass make sure you have a 25amp fuse wired into the power wire and a on/off switch that you must remember to turn on and off every time you drive the car.

No power too fuel pump relay


A fuse will blow for 2 reasons . 1) If the device has a Short in the circuit that runs through this fuse. 2) If the device draws more amperage from the power source through the fuse than the fuse will handle. ex. if a fuel pump or starter has a 20 amp fuse and the starter/fuel pump is going bad and draws 30 amps it will blow the fuse. A fuel pump on a 1996 vehicle is located in the fuel tank and is kept cool by the surrounding gas and the gas that flows through it. Overheating a fuel pump is virtually impossible. That being said there is a High probability that replacing the fuel pump and relay will fix this problem. It is quite common for this to occur in the GM vehicle of 1996. When the pump starts to fail, it draws an excessive amount of amperage and would blow the fuse. Hope you find this information useful.

Fuel Pump wiring


If I understand right, I would say the normal ground for the pump is bad.
"I am guessing the pump uses a ground source to start." well, just the normal ground like for any motor, you have the power wire (gray) to the pump, then the ground wire for pump, does it branch off near the tank and find a ground? Or does it go into the tank connector and then routed back somewhere through the wiring harness? Anyway, it has to go to ground somewhere. You have the wiring right it sounds,. just make a good ground source, or find the original ground and repair it.

The blue wire changes to Blue/White. It gets power from the Fuel Pump Relay. Fuse number 11 is the power source. The relay is up under the dash panel, blue connector

Question is, does fuel pump relay come in/ go out when ignition switched on? How do you know "no power source to fuel pump", was that because bypassing the relay didn't cause it to run? Or did you check for supply to the pump and find nothing doing?.
Sounds rather like a frozen pump to me... or a blown fuse??
