This is not a full answer, but a tip on an easier way.to get to the pump. Instead of removing the gas tank. Just pull the bed off the truck! I guarantee that it will be easier. I did this on a 2001 S10 and it took less that an hour to remove the bed.
Remove the spare tire, and the tube that the tool to lower the tire goes through. You will need to unplug your tail lights under the back or the bed on both sides. There is also a grounding screw for the tail lights on each side that needs to be removed. Remove the screws that hold the gas tank filler hose to the side of the bed - right by the filler cap. Remove the tailgate (to make the bed lighter). Follow the frame down the length of the bed and you will find the bolts holding the bed on. There should be 6 or 8 bolts. My S10 had 8 bolts and my son's full size Chevy PU had 6 bolts (go figure?). Then just lift the bed off the truck. We did my S10 with 3 people and it had a camper shell and rack on it. My son's full size truck was lifted off with only 2 people. I would suggest 4 people however - one on each corner to make it easier to lift and control.
Replace the pump as described above and then you can start the engine to make sure everything works before setting the bed back on. NOTE: The fuel pump grounds back with the tail light ground. If the engine doesn't start right away, try grounding the wire back by the tail lights. It works like a charm. This is an especially nice way to do it if the gas tank is full! I spent 18 years as a professional mechanic and this is one of the slickest, least known tricks I have come across. I wish I'd known about it when I was wrenching for a living! Cheers!
turn your key to the on position and leave it until the security light stops blinking, im pretty sure it's about 10 minutes. Once it has stopped blinking, turn the key back to the off position and then try and start. but keep in mind that this will only work that time. Chances are this will come back. If you don't mind having your security light on all the time, then try this. It's a cheap fix compared to the 500 a dealership will charge you. http://www.car-forums.com/s10/t25650.html
your power starts at the brake light fuse,check with a test light,then proceed to stop light switch on brake pedal under dash,one wire will be hot when when you check it with your test light, the other won't be until you press down the brake pedal then the power flows through to the second wire,if no power to second wire replace switch,if you have power remove tail light bulbs and check for power in side socket.
when u turn on the ignition does the light for the dash board turn off and when u release the ignition key back light for dash board come back. If this happens a battery poles are dirty or loose try cleaning and tighten good
it can be done....Start the truck and look at key cylinder under those covers of the seering column. There is a yellow wire that runs to it....CUT IT...Lol...really after its running cut that yellow wire..Just member to look at the key cylinder. you will see very small yellow wire and black and maybe a white....Cut the yellow on and it kills the factory antitheft. however the light wil be on the dash that says anti theft. If you are so inclined just take the dash panel out and remove he bulb. I did...
