1999 Pontiac Grand Am wont start. Fuel pump gets power for a second and then no power. What shuts off the power to the fuel pump?

you have to know that the fuel pump is power by the fuel pump relay
first when key on pcm prime a ground to the fuel pump relay and then the pcm need to know if engine is turning to stay on . make your test at the relay.

1999 blazer only starts when primed and then wont start after sitting

Black smoke is usually extra fuel, but you say you are priming it to start so that could be why.
Have you checked fuel pump pressure before and after cranking ?

Ran out of gas on my 2003 kia spectra and it wouldnt start anymore after filling up? at first when i turn ugnition on the fuel pump would prime, i was told i ran my pump dry so i took it out, put in a new...

There is probably an inertia switch to cut the fuel supply in the event of a collision. You should find location details in the vehicle handbook.

Unlikely running the pump dry for a short time will damage it. The pump is submerged in the fuel tank and should require little or no priming as long as it is receiving a supply, which must be tested while cranking the engine. The system could be tested by providing the pump with an independent supply.

While replacing the fuel pump or fuel gauge unit it is wise to thoroughly examine the inside of the fuel tank with a safe light. All sorts of things are found inside fuel tanks.

The fuel filter should also be replaced and it is wise to carefully cut open the original to examine what dirt and rubbish is trapped inside.

If all is good but there is still no fuel delivery can be checked by disconnecting the fuel supply pipe at the engine with a jug at the ready. In good order a litre in a couple of seconds can be expected.

first check the fuse and relay for fuel pump. heres how to check the pump. get under car and put hand on bottom of fuel tank, then have a person turn key to on . if pump is ok. you will feel a vibration in tank. you may have to do this a few times because a fuel pump only runs a few seconds to get fuel pressure to engine then shuts off. but when vehicle is running its on all the time to supply fuel to engine.

You need to make sure you put in AT LEAST 2 gallons of gas, more if the car is not level. It might take a few cycles of the key to get the fuel line primed again. A full cycle is Off-On-Start. When you turn the key to on, listen for the fuel pump. It should run for a few seconds and then shut off, turn the key to start for a few seconds and then back to off... This will have to be repeated several times. You should be able to hear the fuel pump from the drivers seat. I will be a faint hum or hiss coming from the back seats.

Try turning the key on,for 2 seconds,then off,for 2 seconds.Over and over,about 10 times,if this does not work,then the fuel pump is bad.Turning the key on ,and off,will prime the fuel system,and the try and start the vehicle.

Ran out of gas and not getting gas to carberator after adding gas

Hello there:
If you have tried priming the fuel pump by turning on the key and listening for the fuel pump to be running if it is it may just need to be primed with a hand priming pump untill you get fuel
but if you still dont get any fuel i would check out the fuel filter to see if it is clogged and needs to be replaced
to locate the fuel pump and filter go under the drivers side and look at the frame of the vehical not quite half way back and you will see the fuel filter and just in front of this about 10 inches towards the engine will be the fuel pump ok>
best regards michael
