Question about GMC Jimmy
Fuel Pump Electrical Circuit
When the key is turned ON with out the engine running, the control module turns a fuel pump relay ON for two seconds. This builds up fuel pressure quickly. If the engine is not started within two seconds, the control module shuts the fuel pump OFF and waits until the engine starts. As soon as the engine is cranked, the control module turns the relay ON and runs the fuel pump.
When the engine is cranking or running, the control module receives the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor reference pulses which in turn energize the fuel injectors. As a back-up system to the fuel pump relay, the fuel pump can also be turned ON by a fuel pump oil pressure switch. When the
engine reaches about 28 kPa (4 psi), and the fuel pump relay does not complete the circuit, the fuel pump oil pressure switch will close to complete the circuit to run the fuel pump.
An inoperative fuel pump relay can result in long cranking times, particularly if the engine is cold. The fuel pump oil pressure switch will turn ON the fuel pump as soon as oil pressure reaches about 28 kPa (4 psi).
You can test to see if the relay it's self is bad by swapping it temporarily with another relay. If your truck has AC then that one should be compatible. Just compare the two to see if they're the same and if so, try using the AC's relay.

THE POWER TO ACTIVATE THE FUEL PUMP RELAY COMES FROM THE ECM C4 CONNECTOR PIN 1 DK GREEN WIRE. ON THE RELAY ITS EITHER PIN 86 OR 85 THE OTHER OF THOSE IS THE GROUND.TO THE RELAY.
