Check the ground for the fuel pump. a wire with an eye connector is bolted to the left frame rail towards the back of the truck. You have to lay on your back and slide under the truck to see it. Let me know if this solves your problem. or just run a new ground wire to the pump.

SOURCE: I have a 97 gmc sonoma and replaced the fuel pump

It really helps if you post which engine you have and the 8th VIN digit. I ASSUME its a V6??? You should have 12 volts for 2 seconds on the gray wire (at the pump) when you turn the key on, If not, check the ECM/BATT fuse #9 20 amps, in the dash fuse panel. IF you do have power, then the relay is working and that is ok, If it does have power to the gray wire, then shuts off after 2 seconds thats normal. NOW while its running the fuel pump gets power THROUGH the OIL PRESSURE SWITCH. So get it running with your test wire, then disconnect your test wire. If it stalls out, then the oil pressure switch is either bad or disconnected.

Ran a power wire from battery to fuel pump the pump is on but not getting fuel to throttle body on a 1992 gmc sonoma


Check your fuel filter. NOTE: sometimes a fuel pump will run, but still too weak to supply enough pressure to run an engine properly. Replace the pump if you haven't already. Get a new one and at least you can eliminate it as the problem.

Fuel pump will not come on 1996 gmc sonoma 4.3


Well that is the correct action of the pump relay. The computer grounds the pump relay for a couple of seconds to prime the pump then the oil pressure switch provides power once the engine starts.
You should be able to jumper the relay and power the pump as much as you want to test the circuit.

97 gmc pickup, 5.7 eng, fuel pump not operating,


What you need to do is check you fuel pressure. Go to a local auto parts store and buy a fuel injection pressure tester. The pressure fitting is on the top of the motor its a 3/8 ish sized metal line and has a screw on fitting like a tire valve does. This line comes up from the back of the motor to the right of the distributor and goes down into the intake. Make sure to have a rag handy to catch the fuel seepage. After you connect the pressure tester turn the key on and off three times and read the gage you should have atleast 58 pounds of pressure. If you have 56 pounds it won't run because the fuel injectors are a poppit valve style and need atleast 58 pounds of pressure to operate.
