Try pulling fuses for everything that is not essential and see if that solves your problem long enough to get it running. then you can add them back one by one until you find the culprit.

1997 chevy silverado 1500 no power to fuel pump.


CHECK FUSES, ALSO LOOK @ RELAY, IT MIGHT HAVE ITS OWN FUSE, NEXT TO IT. POWER COMES FROM BATTERY THRU IGNITION SWITCH, TO RELAY. THEN TO PUMP. THE MOST OVERLOOKED PART OF THIS CIRCUIT IS GROUNDING !!! WHY DOES EVERYBODY IGNORE THE GROUNDS ? WITHOUT IT YOU GOT NOTHING ! NO POWER ! RE-ESTABLISH GROUND STRAP FROM PUMP HOUSING @ TANK TO THE FRAME. EVEN IF THE GROUNDS LOOK OK, THEY SHOULD BE REPLACED. EVEN @ YOUR ENGINE, ALTERNATOR, ETC., THE GROUND RETURNS THE POWER TO THE BATTERY & BACK THRU THE CIRCUIT, COMPLETES THE CYCLE, SIMPLE, EASY, COULD BE YOUR ISSUE ! INSPECT ALL WIRES ALONG FRAME FROM PUMP TO FRONT OF TRUCK, FOR DAMAGE, CORROSION, ETC., ON A LOT OF VEHICLES THE WIRE HARNESS THAT CONNECTS THE PUMP TO MAIN HARNESS GOES BAD CAUSE OF ITS REAR LOCATION, SALT, DEBRIS, ETC., HOPE THIS INFO HELPS YOUR PROBLEM !

1997 Chevy silverado 350 has new fuel pump but still won't crank? What else could be wrong?


Did you replace the fuel filter when you replaced the pump ?
Is the pump getting power and ground ?
Do you have normal fuel pressure at the injectors ?

1997 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 will not start. Getting spark checked all fuses, changed rotar - spark plug wires,


Have you checked the fuel pressure? Fuel pumps are a common failure item on those trucks. Pick up a cheap fuel pressure gauge and hook it up to the shrader valve on the fuel rail. With the ignition on and you should have 55-65psi. Even if it's a few psi below spec it could stop the engine from firing.Once you determine the fuel pressure isn't adequate make sure you have a good power and ground at the fuel pump. If that checks out, time for a new fuel pump module. I recommend only replacing it with an AC delco unit, I've heard bad stories about aftermarket replacements.
You could also spray some carb cleaner or starting fluid in the throttle body and crank the engine over. If it runs for a few seconds after spraying starting fluid in you know you have a fuel delivery problem.

If you have a trailer hook up, check that the wiring is not touching ground. Constant fuse blowing is an indication of a short to ground.

More details please. Works how long before burning out ? Check voltage to pump, make sure good ground, make sure screen & filter are clean, make sure no blockages or restrictions in line from pump to engine.
