Better to test the pump relay with a meter or a test light. The relay could have failed.
The relay and the fuse should be in the fuse box near the battery.
Check your owners manual for details.

    Every driver needs a manual. You can get used owners manuals from Ebay.

    The fuel pump relay gets power from a 20amp fuse marked ECM-B. Even if the fuse is blown, you'll need a repair book or factory shop manual to know what is in the circuit that could have blown the fuse. And the problem may not be fuel related in the first place.

    The repair book or shop manual will have the procedure to jumper the pump relay and make the pump run as a test.

    The owner's manual will only tell you where the fuse and relay are located.

The fuel pump can be turned off from the Main Relay, so check the Main Relay and fuse also.
Hope this helps.

This is the symptom that indicates the fuel pump is bad. the year of the car is also in the year range that they had a lot of pump problems. with someone trying to start the car, try hitting the fuel tank and if you hear the pump run or it starts the pump is bad.

Won't start


Check the fuel injectors, with the key on one side of the two wire connector will have battery voltage, if none is present then check the ECM fuses in the underhood fuel box.

Have replaced fuel pump in 2001 GMC Sonoma; truck does not start. Have located relay switch, how do I test it? thanks


just swap it with another relay in the box, also check the fuse panel in the pickup for blown fuses. Also when you turn the ignition switch on listen for the pump to come on if you do not hear it. Get an ohm meter and check the wiring at the pump for voltage going to the pump. If there is none start with the fuse box in the cab.

I have a 2001 GMC Sonoma 4.3L that stalled while driving. Will turn over but wont start. Have spark, new battery, and the back spark plugs are dry. No error codes. Has fuel to manifold.


SOUND LIKE FUEL PUMP BAD. CHECK FUEL PUMP RELAY AND FUSE.MAKE SURE YOUR ENGINE IS NOT OVERHEATING.SCAN IT FOR IDLE SPEED CONTROL AND ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR FAULTS.

POOR GAS MILEAGE


Have you changed the fuel filter? I know it sounds weird but a plugged filter will make a truck use more gas. The computer tries to compensate for less fuel by commanding the injectors to open longer. Also a plugged filter will cause excess back pressure on the fuel pump making it loud.. Good Luck.
