My 2000 Grand Prix GT is losing cylinder fire exactly at 60 mph while accelerating every time. Then the Trac warning light flashes once. It runs fine below 60. Noticed no Speed Cont. fuel pump relay.


What engine ? could have 3.1 or 3.8 L No resistor ? for what ?
Noticed no Speed Cont. fuel pump relay. What are you talking about . Are you talking about no control for the fuel pump relay from the PCM/ECM engine computer ? The PCM Energizes the fuel pump relay for two seconds when key is first turned on . Two second prime of fuel system . When cranking the engine the PCM/ECM will only energize the fuel pump relay if it see's an input from the crank sensor .

Were can I find the fuel pump kill switch


When you first turn the key to start the vehicle the PCM - engine computer energizes the fuel pump relay turning on the fuel pump for two seconds to prim the system . The fuel pump won't be turned on again till the PCM receives a crankshaft position sensor signal. If you hear it come on the inertia fuel cut off switch is OK . Now then what problem are you having Lisa ? A no start condition ? Is there spark getting to the spark plugs ? Do you have a red light on the dash flashing when trying to start the truck ? Anti-theft system problem .

My 1998 grand voyager sometimes will not turn over . if i turn the key and don't hear the fuel pump it will not turn over if i turn the key on and hear the fuel pump it will start


did your car come equipped with prolock? prolock starter kill can become defective and prevent your car from starting. or it can be your ignition switch. I had a defective ignition switch and the van 's fuel pump would turn on but no start...

NEED DRIVE CYCLE FOR 2004 CRV TO RESET CAT AND O2 MONOTOR


Here is the info

NOTE: The ignition key must not be on prior to the cold start otherwise the heated oxygen sensor diagnostic may not run.

1. As soon as the engine starts, idle the engine in drive for two and a half minutes with the A/C and rear defrost on. OBDII checks oxygen sensor heater circuits, air pump and EVAP purge.

2. Turn the A/C and rear defrost off, and accelerate to 55 mph at half throttle. OBDII checks for ignition misfire, fuel trim and canister purge.

3. Hold at a steady state speed of 55 mph for three minutes.

OBDII monitors EGR, air pump, O2 sensors and canister purge.

4. Decelerate (coast down) to 20 mph without braking or depressing the clutch. OBDII checks EGR and purge functions.

5. Accelerate back to 55 to 60 mph at half throttle. OBDII checks misfire, fuel trim and purge again.

6. Hold at a steady speed of 55 to 60 mph for five minutes.

OBDII monitors catalytic converter efficiency, misfire, EGR, fuel trim, oxygen sensors and purge functions.

7. Decelerate (coast down) to a stop without braking. OBDII makes a final check of EGR and canister purge.

I ran out of gas. When I put gas in the tank the car wont start. What do I do?


hopefully all you need to prime the system
just turn the key on for 5 sec...do not crank and then turn the key off 5-10 times

each time you do this listen for the fuel pump...you should hear a whining noise
if you do not hear the whining noise then you killed your fuel pump when you ran out of gas

do you drive often below 1/4 tank?

I have a 2000 buick regal,3.8 that will not


u can try replacing the relay. when u turn the key to the position right before starting position which is the position it would be in when u start a car and let off key because car started, well this is somting to try turn the key to position right before starting position have sombody listing down by fuel tank and see if tey can hear pump come on, try a couple of times to make sure they can hear, also the pump will only come on for about 2 seconds each time u put the key in that position, if u do hear the pump come on each time u do that that means pump is working if so u need to build up fuel pressure which could b anywhere from 20 to 60 pressure, to build up pressure u need to turn the key to same position turn key off turn key back to that position then off and do it like 50 times each time u do that the pump is on for only 2 seconds only building a half to one pound of pressure thats why u haft to turn key somany times to build it back up, if u try that and car keeps almost starting but doesent then u need to build up a little more pressure. NOTE make sure u have gas, also most electric fuel pumps will go out when turned on dry

Not getting fuel to carberator i changed the pump filter and relay


Other things to check, do the dome lights work? If not change the fuse for those and try again. When its quiet around you turn the key all the way on but don't crank the engine. You should hear the pump kick on. But if the fuse is blown for the Dome lights and the Radio it also kills the ECM which kills the fuel pump since the ECM turns on the fuel pump. And the 91 does not use a carb, its a Throttle body injection system.

My 91 bravada was rear ended and now wont start


This impact probably damaged the pump as well. I would try to listen if the fuel pump cycles on when you turn the key to the "ON" or "Run" position if it does not than I would have it replaced.
