1 Answer

Who is doing this work ?

Can not see the relays needing to be replaced
Did you even test them,if not why replace them?

Why the fuel pump?
Was that tested or it just seized up mechanically
or stopped electrically?

Before you can continue, you need a wiring diagram,
to learn the fuel pump circuit

When you have that down,you will have picked test
points for your volt meter & live voltage drop tests, as
well as ground side testing

You will also see on the print what else in the vehicles
systems, may have to be complete, in order for the fuel
pump relay to come on

You can power the pump direct from the relay socket,
if you read the wiring diagram & have no other wiring
problems from there to the pump & ground

SOURCE: 1999 oldsmobile silhouette van won't start. no power to fuel pump

I have a silhouette and it had the same problem
Follow the fuel pump wiring harness to where it plugs into the floor of the van--pull the connectors apart--they will probably be corroded, and you will possibly have to change both wiring harnesses or connectors.

SOURCE: Fuel pump relay location 1997 celica

The relay and fuse is located under the hood in the relay box. It will be labeled on the lid. If fuse is good, then test the relay. Pull it out and with a test light see if there is power. If there is then remember that one. Have some one turn the key on and find another power wire. There should be 2 powers.If there is only one power then there maybe a problem in the ignition switch. If there is 2 powers then you need to get to the top of the fuel tank and see if power is getting to the pump. The power at the pump will be there for only a few seconds once the key is turned on and then will drop off. Let us know how it goes.

Cranks but wont start


Apparently the relay is not being turned on. I believe that signal would come from the engine computer. Does your check engine light come on when you turn the key to on? If it does, the computer is powered up-if no check engine light, either the bulb has burnt out or the computer has no power-check for a bad fuse.
Put your finger on the fuel pump relay and have someone turn the key to on. Do you feel the relay tick? If you do, check if the relay has one hot wire with key off-use a voltmeter or a testlight. If you do have a hot wire at relay., check fuel pump wiring from relay to the pump. Pull off the connector at the pump and replug it back in.
If you can't find a powered wire at the relay with key off, maybe it is only hot when key is on, so turn key on and check relay again for that power wire going to the relay, one wire should have constant power there. If not, there is a wiring problem between the battery and the relay. If the relay has power to it, but you felt no pulse when turning the key to on, likely the relay is not getting a signal to turn on. A shop would need to investigate that.
Well, good luck, hope you find the problem.

Same thing


If there is no power to the fuel pump check the relay ( fuel pump relay ) under the hood next to the AC relay they are interchangable.

No fuel getting to where it needs to be.


Check that the fuel pump is working. Take th egas cap off and have some-one turn on the ignition to run. If you hear a light motor sound it should be OK.
If not, you need to make sure you are using the right key for the car. The key is coded and if it is not the correct key, the engine will crank but the fule will be cut off via the pump.

Check the fuses (under the steering column behind panel) for a fuel pump circuit. I beleive there is fuel pump relay which needs to be checked.

If there is no power to the fuse block then there has to be a main relay check that to see if it is blown. it is usualy located in the fuse block undr the hood.
