Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

Need assistance on a 1999 silverado 5.3 fuel pump. The new fuel pump is an upgraded flat four prong connector. I have the new wiring diagram but not the old one. I connected black to black gray to gray purple to purple orange/black to black and white the fuel pump did not operate, is this the correct sequence?

    I don't see a white/black wire on the diagrams?

    Is it possible for you to post a picture?

    There should be power on the grey for 5 seconds when the key is turned to the run position and power all the time when the key is in the crank position. This is power to the pump.

    The black wire is pump ground. Make sure the ground is good.

    Do you have a test light or a volt meter?

2000 chevy silverado 1500 4.8 4wd will not start

Your pump is controlled by the pcm using a 12 volt signal to the relay. Pull out the relay and probe the relay socket with a voltmeter. There should be 2 terminals with 12 volts when the key is on. With the key off, there should be one 12 volt terminal coming from the ecm b fuse. See top left of diagram below.

99 GMC Fuel Pump Problem Solution

After a long 3 day search for a SOLUTION, I FOUND ONE that might work for those who have tried everything else and still nothing.
This does require the pump being out of tank. Disconnect neg battery cable before you begin and ALWAYS keep 2 or 3 fire extinguishers close by for ? :) I'm not a writer, so this may or may not make sense. But it worked. This may void warranty if you have one.

I bought a new fuel pump and it worked for a little while then quit. I checked the ground found it to be tight, got new relay, changed fuse, and took all the steps that we all take. I was getting 12 volts to the gray wire, and was getting volts to the purple wire at the new oval plug. When I hooked a hot wire to (gray) and a ground to the (black) on the actual pump itself it would work. NOTE: Here I'm not talking about the new wireing harness plug that they request you change. That harness/plug works fine.. The problem I found was the voltage was NOT passing through the plastic connector that is attached to the top of and the underside of whole pump that has the 4 prongs inside. So by taking the connection loose where the four wires from the actual pump and sensers connect to the fitting on the underside of the whole pump (you have to be careful with this part write everything down before you begin just in case) I seen that the little wire ends had very big openings for the prongs to fit in. I squeezed the ( wire ends) together ((Just a Little)) and spread the prongs out just to give it a tighter fit and plugged it back in, then I plugged my new oval looking harness/plug in reconnected neg battery cable and gave it a try( you can test it before you put it back in tank but Do Not test more than twice!.) and it is working again. Hopes this helps anyone who has tried everything else. :)

How to wire a trailer package on a 2004 silverado 1500

These diagrams should be useful in assisting you to wire the trailer connectors properly. A five way connector is like a four way with an extra blue wire for the electric brakes. A test light should be used to be certain that the wires are connected to the trailer connectors properly before you actually connect the trailer connectors together.

1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Fuel Pump

check the connector to the fuel pump for corrosion or loose pins, the fuel pumps of newer cars and trucks are designed to last at least 100,000 miles, when the new pumps quit did u verify they had power to them?
