You should have 2 fule pump relays Oldsmobile uses a fails safe (some models). located on the oil sending unit, that is if you are equipt with this type, you are going to have to re inspect the fuel pump installation itself,there is a problem with your ground wire,just because the fuel pump runs off of a ground does not mean use body ground you will burn the relay.The fuel pump will have Positive + and ECM -, (from the relay). There is one ground going to the body of the pump, so you definetly will have to reinspect your installation,

Fuel control module 2008 escalade and the fuel pump quit working.if I run a hot wire to it it will run but as soon as I remove the hot wire it quits


Ran a hot wire to what fuel pump or the control module ? Which of these is yours ?

Fuel Pump Flow Control Module (FPCM) - LMF
The fuel pump flow control module (FPCM) is a serviceable GMLAN module. The FPCM receives the desired fuel pressure message from the engine control module (ECM) and controls the fuel pump located within the fuel tank to achieve the desired fuel pressure. The FPCM sends a 25 KHZ PWM signal to the fuel pump, and pump speed is changed by varying the duty cycle of this signal. Maximum current supplied to the fuel pump is 15 amps. A liquid fuel pressure sensor provides fuel pressure feedback to the FPCM.
Electronic Returnless Fuel System (ERFS) - LMF
The electronic returnless fuel system is a microprocessor controlled fuel delivery system which transports fuel from the tank to the fuel rails. It functions as an electronic replacement for a traditional, mechanical fuel pressure regulator. A pressure vent valve within the fuel tank provides an added measure of fuel pump flow control module (FPCM). Desired fuel pressure is commanded by the engine control module (ECM), and transmitted to the FPCM via a GMLAN serial data message. A liquid fuel pressure sensor provides the feedback the FPCM requires for Closed Loop fuel pressure control.
If your vehicle has this system check it for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Will take guess work out of it .

DTC P023F: Fuel Pump Control Circuit
The engine control module (ECM) supplies voltage to the fuel pump flow control module (FPCM) when the ECM detects that the ignition is on. The voltage from the ECM to the FPCM remains active for 2 seconds, unless the engine is in crank or run. While this voltage is being received, the FPCM supplies a varying voltage to the fuel tank pump module in order to maintain the desired fuel rail pressure.

What wrong whit my 2000 nissan quest it shut down on when it get hot


Your fuel pump is getting bad, you need to replace it as fast as you can. When temp is hot or you ride long distances the fuel pump is getting hot and looses pressure, when you let it cool for a while it may work again for a while, but no one can tell how long!! So my advise would be to replace it as soon as possible. Good luck. (remember the fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, so to "prevent" overheating while you change it try to have at least 1/2 tank)

It should be four wires. Gray is power to the pump, Purple is gauge control, and two black wires that are ground. You should have battery voltage on the gray for 3 sec. after the key is turned on. Did you replace the plug-in to the pump when you replaced the pump? The pumps usually come with new plugs

The GRAY wire i believe going to the fuel pump is the hot wire it should come on for 2 seconds with just the key in the on position this is were you should check voltage for 2 seconds then it will go away until you crank the truck.Your oil sending unit is behind your distributor that could be the cause .

On my 1994 plymouth voyager the 3 wire harness to fuel pump (blue wire) doesn't have 12 volts; should it? fuel pump quit then worked once when hot-wired with 12 volts. fuse and relay is good.


The wire should not be hot until the relay is triggered. The relay does not get triggered until the ignition key is turned on. It will run for 3-5 seconds or until the system pressure it at max.

Check the positive side of the battery for a burnt fusible link. It looks like a wire but when it's over loaded if burns in half. Look at the pos. battery side of the starter solonoid you'll see a few of them there. Check your ignition module as well. This controls the coil and distributor and is mounted to the driver side inner fender.
