This won't help you, but may help me understand how
people think & work

You say good voltage into fuse block
Battery Voltage?

What role does a test light play there?

All your doing is dropping a load over
the bulb in the test light. Sure you got
something but what?

I assume your using a volt meter also!

Sounds as though you are capable of
diagnosing things.

Do you have diagrams.

How was very low voltage determined
& what are you supposed to have.

Need to know the system your working on

I hope that is food for thought & you will
share your ideas in a positive way

I would like to help but give us something
to work with

On a 1972 Chevy K5 Blazer, the tan wire from the gas sending goes to the back of the fuel gauge I understand. Where on the back of the fuel guage exactly does it go? Does any wire go to fuse block? W

Power should goto the gauge, second wire from the gauge goes to the sender unit on the tank. If there's any other terminals on the gauge or the tank they will be grounds

Just replaced fuel pump 2000 blazer. different wiring harness/connector. wired like intructions said. won't come on. no voltage present. help.

Did you check for power before replacing the pump? It's possible that it wasn't the pump at all. Check for power to and from your fuses and fuel pump relay.....If you need, send me your email address and I can send you the wiring diagrams.

I have a 1989 chevy s-10 blazer. i have replaced the fuel pump, the fuel pump relays and i hooked up the pump for a dry run before putting it back into the tank, the float neddle works but the pump is not...

If you didn't damage the fuel pump with the dry run, and the relays are new, and the wiring is connected properly, it should work. If you have checked all the fuses in the fuse panel and none are blown, I don't think the fuse would be anywhere else. I've got one idea you can try. It's a long shot, but I've seen it happen several times. The oil pressure sending unit or switch, is tied into the fuel pump wiring. If the oil pressure switch is bad, or the oil pressure is low, the fuel pump will be shut down. Disconnect the oil pressure switch and use a piece of wire or a sturdy paper clip and make a jumper wire. Plug the jumper into the end of the oil pressure switch wiring connector and try the ignition to see if the fuel pump works. If that doesn't work, I'll do some research on the fuse location. Good luck.

I have a 89 full size blazer, runs great for about 20 minutes then there is no throttle respond or fuel shooting from the injectors. I can turn the truck off and crank it right back up and it will run for...

The fuel injectors need voltage and ground. The voltage usually goes hot with key on and is fuse protected. When problem is ongoing, you could use a test light to check for voltage at fuel injector. Engine cranking if voltage on both wires, there is no ground. The computer grounds that circuit.
There is a purple wire with white tracer that carries rpm signal from ignition module to computer, that is rpm signal, w/o that dc pulse on that wire, the computer won't ground the fuel injector. Just my opinion. There could be a problem with your ignition module, but, I can't be certain?

I have a 1987 k5 blazer was coming home and check eng. light came on and started to sputter the next morning the fuel pump would not come on and it wont start??

first ... look in the fuse panel.. in the engine compartment near the battery for the fuel pump relay.... replace that... if still no sound from the fuel pump it has likely failed. use a meter to test for voltage at the fuel pump.... or use a car battery to apply voltage to the fuel pump directly... if it starts up the issue is elsewhere. to replace the fuel pump you will likely need to drop the fuel tank.

No fuel no spark 1990 k5 blazer 350

Take off the distributor cap. Check the star wheel that is splined to the distributor shaft that the pick-up coil uses. Make sure this wheel is not loose on the distributor shaft. It is right above the pick-up. If it is loose, replace the distributor. This is a common problem. If it needs one, all the part stores stock the distributor.

Blowing ECM-B fuses

The ECM-B fuse is a 20 amp fuse, and you should NEVER put a larger fuse in to try to overcome any problem. The oil pressure switch is a secondary concern; there is an idiot light or oil pressure guage in the dash to alert you to oil pressure problems. Under heavy load, such as towing, your engine requires more fuel, and if your fuel pump is going/has gone bad, it cannot supply the demand.
The problem is almost certainly a fuel pump wire harness short, caused by a dying fuel pump. I have both had this problem myself, and repaired it on three other vehicles. On my vehicle, the wire harness had welded itself together when the fuel pump locked up, and the wire harness caught on fire.
The fuel pump is in the gas tank (of course my tank was full), and the tank has to be dropped to access it. The wire harness is modular, with plugs at both ends, and can be bought from the Chevrolet or GMC dealer.
If you put an incorrectly-rated fuse anywhere in your vehicle's electrical system, the WORST place to do it is where you have--the fuel pump circuit. Fuses blow for a reason, and the manufacturer's engineers properly size the fuses for the application at hand. Please don't do that again.
This can be a very dangerous problem and repair, and no, it is not cheap.
Do not attempt to operate this vehicle until you have had the problem properly corrected. Good luck.
