If there is no "rhythm" to the problem, meaning no trackable common denominator when the issue occurs, then I would agree with the main relay suggestion. I experienced the same issue with my 95 Legend and the main relay replacement resolved it.

Your starting problem may be a clogged filter or a bad fuel pump. You are not having problems with the engine cranking I assume.

    If you decide to replace the fuel pump, you should replace the filter also. If you do it yourself then you can test the pump by applying 12v to it and seeing if it comes on. I hope this helps.

Why am I not getting fuel to carb? New fuel pump, filter, relay, fuses. Van was running, shut off for a half hour, but will not start. Not getting fuel, replaced relay again, checked fuses again. Jumped...


Are you getting the ignition activated voltage to the relay? If you are, and you can jump across the relay to turn on the pump, I would say your relay is defective. If you know the relay pins for the ignition input and ground, you should be able to test it outside its plug in socket. You should hear it click when +12V and ground are applied to the proper pins/connectors for the ignition voltage. An ohm meter could be put across the supply +12V and fuel pump pins/connectors to really check the operation. If you think your relay is good. I would start checking for a bad +12V connection for your ignition supply, as well as the +12V that is switched through the relay. And the grounds to all. Use some contact cleaner on relay pins and socket. Ignition switch contacts can cause issues too. If it stays broke at least it should be easier to find than something that is intermittent. Based on what you stated, most of your troubleshooting should be at the relay socket (knowing which connectors do what) to isolate the issue to the relay, your ignition voltage, or your fuel pump voltage. After that it is knowing which step to take next.

can you hear the fuel pump when you turn the ignition key to start position??( you should hear it start then stop after few sec.) If not, this could be the fuel pump or the fuel pump relay the pump fuse,some bad contact in the wiring of the fuel pump or the worst case the computer.but if you do,unplug your main fuel line to the injector turn the switch to start position again to see if you have some fuel coming out.if not this could be the fuel filter or the fuel pressure switch! hope this will help you...lipak!..

You need a new fuel pump relay. The engine fires up and runs off the oil pressure switch untill the oil pressure PSI is reached at normal operating conditions. When the oil pressure reaches its operating PSI the PCM or engines computer will shut off that circuit and turns on the fuel pump relay to run the fuel pump untill you shut the engine off

I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am. Earlier this year it began having starting problems and I learned that the fuel pump was not turning on sometimes when i put the ignition switch to on. (wouldnt hear it) ...


It is most likely the Ignition switch. I have replaced several for this exact simptoms.
To check it, you test the power for the fuel pump relay.
When the ign switch starts acting up it will not power up the fuel pump relay portion of the fues box.
You can check it with a test light.
On a day when it starts and runs fine, pull the fuel pump relay, turn key on and probe the socket with test light and make note which ones have power to them.
Then one day, when it dont start, dont turn the key off yet, pull the relay, and retest, and compare.
If there is no power where there used to be power, replace the ignition switch.
Hope this helps
If it does please leave some testimony

Engine in 1997 GMC Safari acts like it is trying to start but


Take off your gas cap and have someone stand there with thier ear at the hole, (no smoking), turn the key to on just before start and they should hear the fuel pump humming. if they dont then try to start. if it doesnt start turn key off and at that instant the pump should be heard again. What i think is happening is your pump is not energizing . Its supposed to energize when turning your key on and off. This can be caused by a bad fuel pump or pump relay switch. Hope this helps. please rate me
