If the security light is on, the anti-theft system may have immobilised the fuel pump from working. Different systems have their own way to immobilise the starting or ignition circuits. You need to check if that is a problem, might check with the dealer if it is a factory installed security system.

Installed new fuel pump to 1998 pontiac transport and engine still not getting fuel


The security system would not affect the pump.
The anti-theft pass-key system disables the starter and the injectors.
If the pump has no voltage check the pump relay.

Car will not start


You probably can't.
If the anti-theft module is in the cluster, you would need the correct key chip for the car the cluster came out of.
You might be able to bypass the passkey system by running a wire to the fuel pump relay and other components.
You may need a shop manual to find the circuits.

I just bought a 2001 cavalier that didn't run (needed a starter). installed a new starter and fuel filter and it's getting spark but no fuel . i can hear the fuel pump but the filter is still dry....


If the anti theft light is on, then this is 100% the problem. The security system can turn off injectors, starters,fuel pumps, and many other things. Check out this link, has tons of info and some good "do it yourself" solutions to beat this let problem forever. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Car doesn't crank is it battery, fuses or security tried to crank car din't hear starter but a lot of noises like clicling and sounds from fuil pump i think


Put the key on ACC. Does anti theft light up and stop? If it keep flashing while your cranking then it is the ANTI -THEFT. (by the way the humming noise ifs the fuel pump). If the anti theft doesnt light up during the cranking youll need the ignition module why I say that if it was crank position sensor the fuel pump wouldnt activate. your safe with the ignition module.and if you want it doesnt hurt to replace crank sensor why I say this the year.Its been a while just a suggestion

Only if theft light is flashing, then it would need to be reset, to reset turn key to on and wait till theft light stops flashing about 10mim or so, then turn key to off and back to start engine.

2000 Jeep Grand cherokee Laredo wont start. Engine turn over . No noise from fuel pump with ignition on. Replaced fuel pump and filter.Turn ignition on- pump did not run.Jumped the fuel pump at the pump...


sounds alot the the pcm it controls the fuel pump and ign system but the anti theft would keep it from starting because the key has a transponder in it programmed for that vehicle and that would kill all ign if triggered

The theft system is set on my 1997 chevy cavalier help


If it is a pass lock system just turn the key to the on position, but do not start the engine and wait 10 minutes until the light stops flashing. Then turn it off and restart it. It should go away. If the light is not flashing in the first place then I don't know.
