Well the ignition system could, and I guess the ignition switch could too.

Chevy Tahoe fuel system


Two things:

First, are you aware that your vehicle will only have power to the fuel pump for about 2 or 3 SECONDS before engine start-up? Then the engine must be running for it to have any power beyond that?

Second, is the "Security" light flashing on your dash? If so, you have a security system problem. There won't be any power to the fuel pump.

1997 chevy s10 blazerdash wont light up when key


the dash sound's like a fuse, check the fuse box under the hood and in the door jamb on the side of the dash, also check your fuel filter and fuel pump, im betting on the pump because i have a 2001 chevy blazer that has had two replaced and it has 233000km on it!
