Blowing fuses from fuse box for fuel pump - 2006 Pontiac Torrent

Posted by on

  • flywithme194 Aug 21, 2008

    Blowing fuel pump/injector fuse. Replaced with a 20 amp, from a 15, just to get car home (Bad idea, but it worked) Any ideas? Bad fuel pump? Shorted wire somewhere? Are the injectors themselves fused? Could a bad injector do this? Kyle

Fuel pump fuse hot in fuse box under hood and fuel pump doesn't go on


A friend of mine had a similar problem in a Pontiac . Seems that the bass system in the trunk had shifted and rubbed the insulation off of the fuel pump wires. Then when driving it would short out and blow the fuse.

Blowing fuse #9 in underhood fuse box(fuel pump fuse)Unplug fuel pump and fuse ok plug fuel pump back in and fuse blows.Replaced fuel pump(pump only)and still blowing fuse.


you should have checked all the wiring at the pump/sending unit inside and out as sometimes there is an indication of shorted wires.the problem is definitely at the unit either internal or external.recheck the wires.i`m assuming you mean you have reassembled every thing back together and the tank is re- installed.if not and you mean you have it out of the tank and connected it and the wires are good and not touching anything then you have a bad pump(its happened before).

Keeps blowing fuel pump fuse. Why?


This normally happens due to short in the wirings.Or if someone has connected a stereo or some other electrical contrivance to the wiring harness (bundle), either under the dash or under the hood.To confirm this unplug the fuel pump wiring connections and insert new fuse.Then start the car and see,if still the fuse blows then its a short in wiring.But if the fuse does not blows then its faulty fuel pump relay or faulty fuel pump itself.So first replace the fuel pump relay and see,if the fuel still blows then its faulty fuel pump.But if the fuse not blowing then relay was the faulty part.The fuel pump relay located on the fuse box under the hood.---------This troubleshooting tips will help you locate the fault and solve it.-------Thanks.Helpmech.

My lumina starts but only stays running for a minute or so before it cuts off and 1 of the fuses keeps blowing under the hood the cover for the fuse box is missing so i dont know what fuse it is


I sounds like it may be your fuel pump fuse or relay blowing, if this happens to be the case, I would go to your local salvage yard and obtain a fuse box cover to see what fuse is blowing, if it is the fuel pump fuse you have a short in the wiring or the pump causing an overdraw of amperage blowing the fuse, you will have to find where the short is, it could be the pump itself or a bare wire going from the fuse box to the pump, if its an ignition fuse you could have a bad coil or igition module that has an internal short, i would first find a cover to see what fuse actually keeps blowing before you can start a better diagnosis of whats going on.....

Somewhere you have a ground fault in the wiring system. Sometimes if the O-ring on the fuel pump assembly is bad it allows a improper ground. Be sure to also check the fuse box wiring to assure that all grounds are tight. Some fuse boxes have multiple grounds.

Fuel pump wont run and keep blowing a fuse in the front fuse box


The power wire to your fuel pump must be shorting out somewhere. Disconnect it and see if your fuse still blows. If not, then follow the wire all the way back to the fuel pump, and look for a bare spot. Good luck!

Blowing fuel pump fuse


Did you change the pump? It may be drawing too much current and causing the fuse to blow... My recommendation is to replace that if you continue to have this problem OR unplug the fuel pump and see if it still blows... then it is a shorted wire!

disconnect wiring to pump. install new fuse for the pump and turn over ignition. the car wont start because the fuel pump wiring is diconnected. check the fuse to the fuel pump, if the fuse did not blow when the pump is disconnected it is a faulty fuel pump. I read this somewhere and a garage is up to 850 dollars in parts and labor only to offer me more parts and labor not relevent to my problem. I am towing it home and running this test my self.
