Sounds like the fuel pump has went bad and is grounding out. replacing the fuel pump should fix the problem. Hope this helps.

My step son has a 96 S10 he replaced the pump a week ago, drove fine. after parking at the store it's popping fuses right and left? Anyhelp as always will be appreciated thanks Dave


Start looking for a short to ground. Check by noise (popping, sizzling), sight, (sparking) and feel-( a shorted wire may feel hot).
Check the engine compartment, especially around hot exhaust parts, under the car (see any loose wires?), and under the dash-listen and look.
You will need to identify the fuses, so as to know which circuit to check-or circuits if multiple fuses. Figure out what is common to all the blown fuses. Maybe the previous work of replacing the pump got some wires snagged or mashed and causing the shorts.

Is there a fuel pump fuse


there is a fuel pump relay in the fuse box. but have you checked the fuel pump safety shut off switch. the car has automatic shut off if your in a crash. sometime hitting a bad bump in the road will cause it to trip. it will have a little pop up button that needs to be pushed back down. it can be located several place in a car but usually in the trunk

I have a '96 Explorer that won't start. Cranks strong, wasn't able to jump it. No fuses bad, tried replacing pcm relay and fuel pump relay, inertia switch isn't popped. Is there anything else that could...


what is the fuel pressure reading, chances are u just have a defecive fuel pump, if the pump is running u will hear it when the key is turned to run for one second, so do it repeated time off then on and listen, if u hear nothing repalce the pump.

How do i replace the fuel filter on a 2000 Nissan Sentra


Fuel filter for SRDE20B15 engines (00-01) are in the tank mounted on top of the fuel pump inside the fuel assembly. Release fuel pressure by starting car and removing the fuel pump fuse, open fuel filler cap, remove rear seat, open fuel assembly cover by turning the screws clockwise, remove harness, remove fuel line quick connector carefully (if pressure was not relieved, gas will leak, make sure to release pressure completely), take out fuel assembly (watch out for fuel level sensor and temp sensor thingies). Pop top off the fuel assembly and pop fuel level sensor unit with screwdriver. Remove fuel pump harness connector, quick connectors. Pop top off completely, pop fuel filter+pump assembly out, remove fuel pump bracket on the bottom of it. Push fuel pump down from the top harness connector, Take out the rubber grommet (very important - car won't start) between fuel filter and fuel pump, put it into new fuel filter, and reverse all the steps to close it up.

How do you check if your fuel pump is bad without removing the gas tank


Put the key into the ignition and turn it to the second position. This position will light up the dash lights but will not crank the engine.
Listen for a faint or soft humming sound coming from the rear of the vehicle, specifically the gas tank. This will happen almost immediately after you turn the key to the second position, so you'll have to listen closely and be ready for it. The humming is the sound of the fuel pump priming, or pressurizing, the fuel system. If you do not hear this sound, you may have a faulty fuel pump.
  1. Check to make sure there is enough fuel in the gas tank. Although this may seem obvious, it happens to the best of us. If you're gas tank is near empty, the engine may not start. This happens more frequently in the winter time in cold climates; the low temperatures cause condensation to form on the inside of the gas tank. Since water doesn't burn, the fuel pump tries to draw in fuel and instead gets a mixture of water and gasoline and cannot get enough fuel to the engine for combustion.
    Check to see that the vehicle starts. Even if you don't hear the fuel pump priming, attempt to start the vehicle. If the engine won't turn over (start) and you haven't heard the fuel pump prime the system, it is a good indication that the fuel pump may have failed.

    Check the fuel pump fuse. If the fuse is blown, the fuel pump will not prime. Open the fuse box under the dash of your vehicle and locate the fuse for the fuel pump. Alternately, some vehicles locate the fuel pump fuse in a fuse box under the hood. Remove the fuse box cover (specific removal will vary according to the vehicle). Check the fuse to see if the metal strip inside the fuse has popped. Replace the fuse if the metal strip has popped; if it hasn't popped, it is most likely your fuel pump itself that has failed.

2000 Chevrolet Impala 3.8L LS fuel pump problem


check your fuel filter. If it is plugged replace it. A plugged fuel filter can cause a fuel pump to have to work too hard & cause it to burn out prematurely

Fuel pump fuse keeps popping


You have a short to ground or the pump is starting to go bad. You can run a seperate wire from the hot side of the fuse to your pump to see if it is the pump or if you use an ohm meter to check the wire and the pump. Get's a little technical though.
