Check your battery connections an make sure the terminals are clean an tight I would check the battery with a meter an then check the connections at the solenoid from there the power will run up to the ignition switch there may be a small fuse panel check your fuses as well start with the simple things that are cost free make sure the fuses have not corroded if the fuses are good then head to the ignition make sure if the lights are not coming on your ignition is not power everthing up if you have had the head light out make sure you have not pulled any wires loose as the male female connecters are not hard to seperate tif the ignition is powering up check the fule pump wires make sure all grounds are good an clean you can check most of this stuff with a 12 volt test light very easy to use you will clip the ground wire an touch the other end to power it will light you can chase this down no problem

I have a 2003 Buick Century replaced fuel pump, fuel pump relay fuel pump fuse is no power to the fuel pump what's wrong with the car? Pcm? Key switch where's the relay located

Pull the relay. Using a test light connected to ground probe the four pins in the fuse block. Two of them should have power. Connect the test light to power. Back probe the other two connectors. One should be grounded all the time, this is the power supply wire to the fuel pump. The other should be grounded when the key is turned to the run position and only for about 5 seconds.

Let me know what you find and I'll help you further.

Where is the reset button for the fuel pump

Only Fords have them. Check for power on the fuel pump wire at the gas tank connector with the engine being cranked over. If power there, and no pump action, the pump has failed. If no power, find and check the fuel pump relay - under the hood in the fuse/relay block. First, see if the power feed to the relay is good. One of the terminals that the relay plugs into will have a "hot at all times" power signal. Use a grounded test light, key off, and probe all the terminals-one should show power-will light up the test light.

Post back for more help. Good luck.

I have a 03 Hyundai accent I just replaced the fuel pump I have no power to the fuel pump I've checked the fuses and the fuel pump relay it won't start I'm not sure what to do next

Do you have a test light? If not, go buy a cheap $5 test light-one with a lead to clip to a ground, and with a needle type probe.
Pull the fuel pump relay out of the terminals it is plugged into-you need to check if the power feed for the pump is still available at the relay. Clip the test light lead to a ground and touch the test probe to the positive battery post-to check that your ground is good- tester should light up. Now touch the probe to all of the terminals that the relay plugs into. One terminal should have power with key off. If no terminals have power, you have lost the power feed for the pump. Double check all your maxi fuses in the power distribution box. Either a maxi fuse or a fusible link will be the power feed for the fuel pump relay.
If the power feed is there at the relay, try a new relay. If still no pump, a shop will probably have to check your fuel pump circuit.
Did you check for power at the fuel tank while the key was held in crank? When the engine is cranking, the fuel pump wire should have power. When the key is turned to on, the fuel pump should have power for about 2 seconds, to pressurize the fuel system. Then when key is turned to crank or start, the fuel pump should stay on.

No fuel pressure, new pump

No fuel pressure means the pump is not running. Check the pump fuse and if it is good, find the pump relay and check for power going to it on the thick (red?) wire. If it has power there hook a meter or test light to the smaller power wire, have someone turn on the key while you watch the meter or light. It should read voltage for a few seconds.If that is good check the power wires going out from the relay to the pump. Same drill with the meter/light. If there is no power coming out from the relay it is a bad relay.

Get a test light and test the wires going to it ground one end and see if you have power at the pump. If not do the same at the fuses so where you are not geting the power.

Fuel pump not getting power.Replaced fuel relay and pump. computer code was reading cam position sensor. I dont believe that would cause a no power to fuel pump. It is trying to turn and it will turn with...

If it is similar to Quest, the fuel pump runs for 5 seconds when you turn the key to ON. Then, unless the engine is running, the pump shuts off. It runs when the key is in START position though. Can you hear the pump run for 5 seconds when you turn key to ON? Listen carefully for the hum of the pump in the tank.
Normally, the power relay powers up the PCM and it applies power to the fuel pump relay. Then you get power to the pump.
Also, look at owner manual for all fuses that apply to fuel pump system.

How do i change the fuel pump for a 1991 buick regal and how can i tell if it is the fuel pump

turn the key on without starting the engine and listen for the fuel pump to make its 2 or 3 second fuel prime,, you may have to listen carefully, if you dont hear it, check the fuel pump fuse 10 amp red fuse. If its ok check for power at the connector leading to the top of the fuel tank, with it unplugged test with a test light the harness side of the connector between the grey wire and ground for power, the test light should light up when you do the fuel pump prime test again, light will come on for 2 to 5 seconds, if it does replace the fuel pump in the fuel tank >>note if you can hear the pump in the first test, pressure should be around 35 psi .
