This car has a Constant Control Relay Module in it I believe. This is where your fuel pump relay is located. It can be expensive if this whole part is bad so make sure to have it checked before buying a new one. There is a fuel pump inertia switch, it may have been tripped. If it is there will be no power to the fuel pump. It should be located umder a small round cover that is below the interior fuse box. (drivers side) Take the cover off and you should see a red button. If it is up then it has been tripped somehow. Push it back down until it clicks. If it was tripped that should fix your problem. Hope this helps.

Just changed the fuel pump in 2005 Jeep liberty, after car wouldn't start and discovered it had no fuel pressure. Once the pump was changed car started right up and ran fine for about half a day, then...


See if the fuel is reaching the engine by loosen the fuel pipe before the injectors if not, change the fuel filter the one in the tank and the one next to the engine and bleed the fuel line it might be an airlock.

93 chevy caprice classic fuel pump relay


i would think if it were the relay you wouldn't hear the pump come on. I would unhook the fuel line just past the fuel filter. turn the key on long enough to see if the pump is pumping and is it getting past the filter. if it is you can rule out a possible clogged filter and you know the pump is pumping. I would then start looking for a clog. or locate the relay take it to the part store and get a new one. the problem is the relay only relays electrical signal to the pump that turns it on and off etc it doesn't tell it to pump or not pump gas so if you can hear it running it's not the relay

Your problem may be one of the following:
First check or just replace the fuel filter. Usually located under the car in front of the rear axle, drivers side.
Next, the fuel pump may be worn out. Usually they just stop working (running).
Next, check the fuel pressure regulator. Usually located on the front fuel rail, drivers side.
Is the vacuum line attached? Not leaking or rotted?
Also, do you smell a strong fuel odor when it won't start? May be one or more stuck-open injectors, or the coil pack is bad.
Checking these in the order listed will more than likely fix your problem.
The clicking noise indicates the battery can no longer run the starter, which also means the fuel pump won't run either.

It could be a fuel issue. How old is the fuel filter? Can you hear the pump run for a few seconds when you turn the key on? Try turning the key to ON without trying to start engine three times waiting for the pump to stop running each time. Then try to start the engine. If it starts, Its a form of Vapor lock caused by the extreme heat we have had lately, and a weak fuel pump.

If none of this works, try a new fuel filter first. From there have someone check the fuel pressure regulator and then the pump. If you are in need of a new pump, take my word for it and spend the money to get one from a Dealer, and not from your favorite parts store. Most parts store parts are made in China and they are JUNK.

2002 gmc extended cab sonoma fuel pump replacement


Drop fuel tank, use brass drift and rubber hammer to unscrew retainer ring on top of tank. (Don't use anything that can cause a spark) Very carefully pull fuel pump and fuel level sensor out of tank.

Separate pump from unit and replace with the new pump. Wouldn't hurt to replace filter sock or filter if this model has one.

Carefully slip unit back into tank, replace seal and locking ring, ensuring it is tight.

If hoses and wires are long enough I check for proper operation before raising the tank all the way in place.

Once satisfied pump and fuel gage is working, replace tank in frame.
