This is a hard one all i can think is a bad wire connection.. At the postive cable there are sometimes additional wire or wires attached to the cable where it connects to the battery.. Check to see if these wire are broken. or disconnected. I'm not sure of this car but some of the late models have a seperate "Main" fuse for fuel pump/starter check to see if you find a fuse box inder the hood some where near your battery. These will not be the standard fuses you see in the main fuse box but unusually large ones. The fuel pump has a circut that turns it off if the car is hit. or hits something. usually there is a pull cable in the trunk to reset this safety feature.. The fuel pump relay is powered from the computer but with main 12v power.. giood luck.

I have a 2004 PT Cruiser I bought it used it ran great then one morning it wouldn't start the battery is good the starters good brand new alternator checked all the fuses it still won't run


Have a friend turn the key for you and listen by the fuel tank to hear if the fuel pump comes 'on'. It you don;t hear anything... you know it's not working. Get the Haynes Manual and unconnect the fuel pump and use a simple (cheap) multimeter to measure voltage to make sure it's getting power, if it is, needs a new fuel pump. If it doesn't, you'd better check the fuse and relay. Sometimes the ignition switch itself is faulty.... the fuel pump is connected directly to the ignition switch, if it's not getting power. (There are two main grounds, one at the starter and the other at the battery/fuse box... make sure they are corrosion free.) Was the new ECU synched with the VIN and odometer loaded into the memory? If not, the pro didn't do it right and the vehicle will never start until it is.

I have a 1994 chevy s-10 pick-up. I just replaced the gas tank, sending unit and fuel pump. Still won't start Prior to doing this I tried to drive it last week. It started and ran for about 2 minutes and...


Check the distributor cap and rotor.... If they look originial or if there's any moisture inside the cap, replace both of them.
Make sure that if you do replace them that theres no moisture in the distributor before putting new parts in.

94 buick century 3.1L replaced fuel pump relay no power to relay why? checked all fuses. was not getting power to fuel pump. red wire going to relay with female connection not pluged in ,what is that used...


The fuel pump relay is twice fused. The relay power is provided through a fusible link connected at the starter post that the positive battery cable connects to; and there is an in-line fuse inside a cube shaped plastic box near the relay. Either the fusible link or the inline fuse is blown, or there is a break in the wire that runs from the stater post to the relay.

i just had the same problem with mine and it was the fuel pump lossing power....i used a tester on all the wires going to the pump and when found right wire tester would send 12v to it and car ran great then when i removed it car would bog out or die...put back on and car ran good again...so i splised in to the wire and ran other end to fuse box under diverside dass and put on wiper blades fuse so goes on and off when i use key. Car runs great.....maybe you have same porblem... also change fuel filter (which is very easy to do..just look up here)

Hi there, i have a 1994 cadillac deville that will not start


Well because you killed battery down you need to recharge battery with a good charger for an hour or two. You need enough amps to turn over starter & energize fuelpump. Just because starter turns over doesn't mean you have enough to power fuelpump. Before you connect battery charger disconnect battery cable while charging. This will clear stored codes. After charging, hook up battery see if codes return.

97 gmc pickup, 5.7 eng, fuel pump not operating,


What you need to do is check you fuel pressure. Go to a local auto parts store and buy a fuel injection pressure tester. The pressure fitting is on the top of the motor its a 3/8 ish sized metal line and has a screw on fitting like a tire valve does. This line comes up from the back of the motor to the right of the distributor and goes down into the intake. Make sure to have a rag handy to catch the fuel seepage. After you connect the pressure tester turn the key on and off three times and read the gage you should have atleast 58 pounds of pressure. If you have 56 pounds it won't run because the fuel injectors are a poppit valve style and need atleast 58 pounds of pressure to operate.

Check for a fuel pump fuse in the cabin or under the hood!
These fuses or relays as they are sometimes called usually look like 2 inch black square boxes!
