There is a "Fuseable Link" in one of the battery cables. They're available at most automotive parts stores.

Where is the inertia reset on a 04 cavalier

What seams to be the problem Jessica ? No fuel ? This vehicle has no inertia fuel cut off switch ! I 'm looking at a wiring diagram for this vehicle, there is a fuel pump relay in the under hood fuse / relay box . In the instrument fuse box is a fuse marked F/P-INJ. fuse 15amp.this supply's power to the fuel pump through the fuel pump relay. If you knew how to do it you check for power at the fuel pump relay !

Cavalier '99 the fuel pump fuse blow only if the car is in drive and press the break pedal or pull the hand break, if I run the car on drive is OK if I do not put the brakes. On reverse and park i

Thats wild.
The fuel pump - injector circuit is on one fuse and the brake circuit is on a different fuse. I can't think of a way the two would be connected other than something wrong with the fuse box.
If the pump fuse blew when you hit the brake pedal, it could be something shorted in the harness, but that would not explain the parking brake.
If there is nothing wrong with the terminals in the fuse box, and no sign of trouble with the wiring around the brake pedal, you may have to hunt the wiring harness back to the pump to look for bare wires.
It might be easier to run a new wire from the pump relay to the pump outside of the main harness.
They make circuit breakers that can take the place of regular fuses, but that would only be a temp fix.

97 chevy cavalier keeps blowing f/p-inj fuse. take to sharp a left turn and blam fuse gone... i dont see any peeled wires... but maybe im looking in the wrong place...what am i should i be looking for?


the problem sounds like either the fuel relay, or wire4s coming from the fuel pump to the fuse box.

the relay is most probable as when you turn the electro magnet inside may sway from side to side if faulty. You will have to locate the position of the fuel pump and trace the wires up to the fuse box if the relay is not at fault.

Hope this helps if you need more info get back to me

91 accord wagon-where can i find another ''hot'' unswitched wire

Trace the yellow wire back to the fuse box located at the side kick panel under the dashboard and place a new wire to replace the " short" wire. The clock wire may share the same wire for your radio. You can confirm this by looking at the label at the fuse box either located at the side kick panel as mentioned before or inside engine compartment, under the hood.

No power after changing gas fuel pump for 91 chev

You have a short to ground.What that means is,you have a power wire...............that is grounding on the vehicle somewhere,or possibly back in the fuel pump.The fuel pump theoretically could be shorted internally causing the problem.It also could be a wire or wires back where you were working possibly got pinched.Disconnect negative battery terminal until problem is solved.
