A bad ground cable could cause this as well, but a little more info is needed like what kind of truck is it, what year, make and model is it, what size motor, do you have an alarm system with an ignition cut-out, have you tried jump-starting it? Do you have a dual-battery setup with an Isolator? The list goes on, but you gotta give us something to work with here. Please gather as much info as you can and post it here. I'll be watching.

Not the alternator, but a fuel pump or fuel filter could be the problem. BUT it depends on the indications. A fuel starvation problem would act like it was lunging and then dieing out before it died. If it just dies out suddenly, then I would suspect an electrical problem like a coil pack or cap.

I started my 97 cavalier 2.2l this morning perfectly fine i drove it for 15min then shut if off went to start it again and it would not start. its trying but all its doing is cranking.


You might need to get a mechanic to check voltage and fuel pressure at the fuel pump these cars have lots of fuel pump issues, you might also want too make sure that there is no exposed wiring on the drivers side kick panel or you could short out your fuel pump....

99 olds alero; fuel pump and inst. panel isn't getting power


fuel shutoff switch is actually a fuel pump relay in the relay box under the hood, but it is not unusual for a fuel pump to work on and off before it finally dies. but it is a good idea to check the relay first.

try swapping it with the horn relay (if the horn works). pay attention to the direction the relay is in. on GM's, it's possible to put them in backward or even miss the connectors completely.

you also want to check for proper power and ground in the relay socket.

What's the difference between fuel pump & replacement fuel pump


I dont think you have a fuel pump problem, It sounds to me like you have an alternator problem. You see when your alternator quits working the car will run on your battery juice untill it is out of juice and all electrical will go out when you put a new battery on it it will start working again untill the new battery is out of juice or untill the alternator is replaced. If the vehicle wont run then the fuel pump might have went bad too. I hope that helps you out.

If the security light is flashing when that happens, you need to turn the key to the ON position, and let it sit for 10 minutes, so it can reset the security code. Start it up as normal and let it idle for 5 minutes.
