No fuel my 91 sidekick was shut off in the garage, never start again, no fuel, is there some kind of relay that runs the fuelpump? all fuses and fusable links are good, when I run power to the pump wires, it pumps, take direct power off, no fuel, someone help!! i was driving my 03 silverado 2500 hd and the engine cut out,and when i tried to start it it wouldnt crank at all,and my fuel pump wouldnt kick on so i towed it to the dealer and they said my fuel pump was bad so i put a new one and checked the fueses but still cant get power to the fuel pump,is there some type of reset?

Hi,
There is break in the wiring to the fuel pump, as you said when you give it direct power it runs. In case you are not able to detect the break in wiring, the only alternative would be to bypass the wiring and put in additional fuse, to make it work with the ignition. You have replaced the pump and that did not fix it , so all in all its a wiring problem.

Thanks
Proton

Check that the fuel pump is not jammed , eventually replace it, check also the fuel filter.

We have a 2004 Ford Escape that had the fuel pump replaced at 29,000 miles, 2 1/2 years ago. We just experienced the same problem and our mechanic again replaced the fuel pump. The mileage is now just...


Hello, I looked at the Reports for TSB's (Service Bulletins) for your vehicle and there are none for this problem. There are a few things that you can try to replace that are not expensive. The fuel filter and some Relays.

I would suspect that aside from using additives to the fuel, there can be only a few possible problems. The fuelpump is either running when it should not or there is a ground problem. For the running when it should not, there are Relays for the fuelpump and I believe a PCM Relay which can turn the fuelpump Relay on.

These Relays have more than 1 set of contacts in them, and 1 set may work fine and the other set may be sticking or failing to make contact. Sometimes it is a problem like yours, an underlying long term problem that causes a part to fail over and over. What I feel may be happening is your pump is not shutting off when it should or something is grounding through your fuelpump because of a bad Relay.

The Power side of your fuelpump has a fuse, the Ground side does not. If the Relays stick and allow a different device to ground through the fuelpump, that could be your problem. I would try a new fuel filter and a few new Relays. They are in the Powerbox under the hood and should be labeled. They would be handy as backups as many are identical. Just mark them for ID.

Gmc yukon turns but will not start dont hear the fuel pump on in the fuel tank


With ignition key on run, use test light to verify you have positive & ground to fuelpump. No power (positive) check fuelpump fuse. No ground check fuelpump relay. If both positive & ground fuelpump needs to be replaced.

I have replaced the fuel pump amongst a lot of other things. I can spray gas or starting fluid in the throtal body and it will run rough untill the fumes ware out. Its a 1995 ford explorer 4x4 xlt


If you hear the fuelpump operate the first 1 or 2 seconds when the key is turned to RUN position, the fuelpump is working. If you do not hear the fuelpump run, check the Inertia switch which should be in the side panel of the rear cargo area. If you have an owners manual check for the Inertia switch location.

To reset the Inertia switch, hold the button on it for 2-3 seconds. You should now hear the pump run. You may also have a fuelpump relay under the hood in one of the Powerboxes. The Powerbox may have a fusible link from the Battery. When the fusible link is OK and the Pump Relay is OK, there is a fuse in the Fuse panel. Then finally the Ignition switch will trip the Pump relay. As power flows through the wire to the fuelpump the Inertia switch can break the power connection.

So you have 5 powerpoints before the fuelpump will work. Fusible link, Pump Relay, Fuse Panel, Ignition Switch,and Inertia switch. These must all work before the fuelpump can run.

No fuel


I come to find out,the fuel command is controlled by the computer, due to corrosion in the internals, it is not telling the fuel pump to turn on,so in turn, I run a switch to the power side of the fuell pump, it works, but the weird thing is, you only need the power on to start the truck, after its running, you can shut the switch off, it stays running, shut it off, you need to turn the power on to make it start pumping again, now who can explain this??
