2001 jimmy sle. I just replaced the fuel pump. Fuel guage works. Pump does not. Checked fuel pump relay- its ok. Trucks turns over but won't start. Whats next?


Test for ground and power at your fuel pump connector. Also, the sending units sometimes come without the pump itself wired in. You have to actually splice in connections sometimes. If you get stuck, dropping the tank again and removing the sending unit to inspect could be your next step.

How do you get to the fuel guage sending unit


Unfortunatly you have to drop your gas tank. The fuel pump and sending unit are both in the gas tank. You will have to release the pressure in your fuel system, disconnect the neg terminal on the batt, then drain and drop your tank.

Gas gauge not responding 94 chevy s-10 pick up. recent replacement of fuel pump about 1 year ago. can i assume i can continue to drive w/no gauge or does this mean the fuel pump is on its way out? is it...


GM vehicles ,especially trucks it seems have alot of problems with their fuel guage sending units. The sending unit is the most likely reason but it can still be wiring or the guage itself.
Does it function at anytime or is it inoperable all the time ?
Most of the time (but not always) when a sending unit is not working properly it is usually when you have a certain amount of fuel in the tank and when it gets to that level it dont function but any level above or below that level it functions.
If this is your case then I feel comfortable in saying it is the sending unit. If not you need to do further testing to be sure it isn't wiring or a guage problem.
And no this is not a indication that your fuel pump is getting ready to go out. Your best protection to keep that from happening though is regular replacement of your fuel filter.
I hope this helps.

Gas guage is not working


If there is gas in the tank and it is not registering correctly, then the sending unit or power to sending unit is bad.
