84 Chevy cleberty after it sits for a day it will not crank unless I put some gas in the Tb thin it cranks and runs fine it has fire and fuel injector is spraying

Check valve inside fuel pump is bad , need new fuel pump . The check valve is suppose to keep pressure in fuel lines . Try turning the ignition on - off a few times ,to build up pressure . The PCM/ECM engine computer energizes the fuel pump relay for two seconds when key is turned on to prime the fuel system .

98 oldsmobile silhouette overheated turned off then i kept trying to turn it on over and over again while stepping on gas many times!

Your vehicle is fuel injected , stepping on the gas pedal does nothing . Unless you push it to the floor an hold it there ! That is WOT - wide open throttle cut off ! Keeps fuel injectors for squirting fuel ! The light's on the dash have a three second prove out ,lets you know the systems associated with each light is working ! Doesn't sound like you know a lot about cars . Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop . The fuel pump is controlled by the PCM - engine computer , when you first turn the key on the PCM energizes the fuel pump relay for two seconds ,priming the fuel lines ! If there were not input from crankshaft position sensor to the PCM, the PCM will not energizes the fuel pump relay at all .

Hard to start from hot or cold, imobaliser fitted. Once started runs fine, but takes 5 mins+ and backfires

You should have the fuel system tested , fuel pump pressure an flow test . an static fuel pressure . There is a check valve in the fuel line inside the fuel pump module , this could be bad . You could try just turning the key to run, not start 4 or 5 times to see if this adverts this problem . This will build fuel pressure up , you see when you turn the key on the PCM/ECM -engine computer energizes the fuel pump for two seconds building fuel pressure .

Were can I find the fuel pump kill switch

When you first turn the key to start the vehicle the PCM - engine computer energizes the fuel pump relay turning on the fuel pump for two seconds to prim the system . The fuel pump won't be turned on again till the PCM receives a crankshaft position sensor signal. If you hear it come on the inertia fuel cut off switch is OK . Now then what problem are you having Lisa ? A no start condition ? Is there spark getting to the spark plugs ? Do you have a red light on the dash flashing when trying to start the truck ? Anti-theft system problem .

Fuel pump relay secondary circuit - high voltage

Here is the definition for the code.
Test procedures are a little different depending on the make and model.

P0232 Description The Engine Control Module (ECM) provides ignition positive voltage to the coil side of the fuel pump relay. When the ignition switch is first turned ON, the ECM energizes the fuel pump relay, which applies power to the fuel pump. The ECM enables the fuel pump relay as long as the engine is cranking or running, and crankshaft reference pulses are received. If no crankshaft reference pulses are received, the ECM de-energizes the fuel pump relay after 2 seconds. The ECM monitors the voltage on the fuel pump relay control circuit.

There is a fuel pump prime cycle (2 or 3 seconds)when you turn the key to on and once you start the engine the fuel pump power comes though the oil pressure switch.No oil pressure,no power to the pump.maybe your oil pressure switch has become weak?I would use a scan tool and command the fuel pump on when it does shut off,just to make sure the pump can run,as it could be a bad pump too.Also when it does quit,if you turn the key off for 10 seconds, you should get a prime cycle by turning the key to on.Have someone listen at the gas tank for a fuel pump noise,which will be only 2 or 3 seconds,but will do as a pump running check.Next would be to check for power at the back at or near the fuel pump,power and no pump.replace pump.No power to pump,follow power back to the front through oil pressure switch and fuel pump relay etc.You can always add your own power to the pump from a power source the switches off with the key if needed bypassing the existing wiring and oil pressure switch.

The fuel pump relay only energizes for 2 seconds when you turn the key on. It re-energizes once the pcm detects engine rpm. What you are seeing may be the normal operation of the system.

If the vehicle still won't start or the fuel pump dosen't run you will have to trace the wiring from the relay to the pump and check your grounds.
