It is possible the Inertia switch is tripped. This is a safety switch and it should be behind the passengers kick panel or under the glovebox and mounted to the firewall inside the cab. It has a reset button that you push.

If it still does not start, your old pump may have blown the fuse in the fuse box. If you have an Owners manual you will note the location of this fuse. A free download site is at VEHICLEOWNERSMANUAL.BLOGSPOT.COM and you will need to follow instructions to download your year and make of car.

Your fuse box is under the drivers dash by the pedals.

Is it difficult to replace fuel pump for a 2000 astro van


it should not be to difficult to replace. you will probably need to drop the gas tank down some and try to remove the fuel lines and wires from the pump be careful the fuel lines could be brittle and easy to break you will also need to make sure noting else is connected to the gas tank before you take it out. once the tank is out all you half to do is remove the old pump it is likely just held in by a snap ring and put the new pump in than put the fuel tank back up into the van and reconnect everything you took off. it is much easier to take the fuel tank out if it is empty. also I usually use a floor jack to hold the fuel tank when I am taking things off and putting things on.

My van wont start. its turning over and almost starting but doesnt. last night it did the same thing so i floored the gas. it finally started and almost died but i gave it a lot of gas. after that it was...


Sounds like the Gas filter. Fairly easy fix. Locate gas tank. Follow gas line to engine, about half way usually by back door under the car, drivers side, is the small filter. Take a pic of it. Head over to car parts store. Show them what you need. It only takes a wrench and a bucket to catch a little gas.

Can I replace a fuel pump in a 2002 toyota sienna? do I need to take it to an expert


Wade, you can do it. just buy a manual for your vehicle. it will give you detailed instructions. Plus you can use it later for other problems that arise. you will have to drop the fuel tank. A novice can do it in about4 or 5 hours on the ground.

Why won't my 1992 Ford Econoline van start


I suspect the fuel pump has stopped working, check the fuel pressure or listen to the noise it makes by taking off the gas cap and listening for a humming noise when the key is turned on, this will stop after a few seconds.
