I would check the fuel relay in front of the battery in the little black box by exchanging it and the main relay and see if that helps. It could also be that your ground needs reconnected or cleaned on the top of your fuel pump. I had the same problem and I replaced my relays (dealer only product) cleaned up the ground and all worked fine.

Gas fuel fuse..where is the fuel ,,,my gas guage is going bazark..sometime full sometime empty no apparent reason


If you pull the fuse from the fuse panel the pump may not run. To check for the problem I would start by making sure I did not have a wire that was grounding out and if that is ok. I would check the caliber. It is on the fuel pump in the gas tank so it is a good size job as you will need to pull the fuel pump out of the gas tank.

Fuel line losses pressure and the truck will not stay on, have replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump. after changing the fuel pump notice that the fuel pump has no power to it, checked the fuse and it is...


What year and model is the truck?.. You say that if you use starting fluid and keep the gas pedal on open throttle the truck stays on?.. that means that at certain point you do get gas in the fuel system. Is it correct?.. otherwise let me know so I can give you more instructions.

Where can I find a fuse for the gas gage on a 2004 Chrysler T&C


The gas guage does not have its own fuse but instead gets its power from the "integrated power module" that handles power delivery to the entire instrament cluster and beyond. If the guage is in-op,[doesnt work] then you will need to have a few "hands-on tests run to verify if the sending unit in the tank[fuel pump module] is functional or if this problem lyes else-where, wiring problem, bad ground,ect,ect.. One hint would be if the low fuel level l;ight still functions without the fuel guage working,then your problem is NOT in the tank and very likely is in your dash-electrical or faulty guage.

95 jeep yj wont start


have you checked the fuel pump ? the fuel pump is in the fuel tank and it may be that the fuel guage inside the tank is broken and or not attached to the pump. This is a big job but with a little help from buddys and a bit patients it can be repaired.

1987 chevy r10 won't start


Assuming it is a fuel problem I checked at the carb. to be sure no gas was being pumped through the filter located under the power steering pump then the fuse on my 87 s10 was the ECM fuse.then check for the relay to click and the had to replace the oil pressure sending unit and mine started right up..the oil pressure must be about 4 lbs for the Pump tp operate...I loosened the fuel line to ck. for fuel but thats living dangerously...a pressure guage would be on the safe side......
