You have a fuel gauge sending unit problem, the gauge is not the problem, the sending unit is in the gas tank, u must remove the gas tank to replace it.

SOURCE: 93 gmc sierra 5.7 liter engine, injection carb,

you say you replaced the fuse, but does the fuse have power? the gray wire at pump should have power when cranking, or for 2 seconds when turning key on. At fuel pump relay, put power onto gray wire, the pump should run if the wiring is good. if it doenst run then ck for power at fuse while power is on gray wire.

My truck turns over but won't start...not enough pressure in fuel pump.

Will it start if you poor some gas down the throttle body? If so then it is a fuel problem. There are some things that will need to be checked. First you need to take a fuel pressure test. If you don't have the equipment to perform the test you can borrow it from Auto Zone. After the gauge is hooked up turn on the key and watch the gauge. It should clime to about 40 PSI (find out what the spec's are for your truck) If it doesn't clime check for restrictions in the system - fuel filter, kinks in line or leaks. The filter in the tank on the end of the fuel pump could be plugged. But before you go pulling the tank check the pressure regulator on the fuel rail it could be allowing the fuel to return to the tank. Another possibility is a stuck fuel injector. If everything checks OK then change the pump.

2003 suburban has been siting for 3 years and now won't start. I can hear fuel pump working when key is ON. Battery is charged. What could it be? It cranks over like no fuel or spark getting to it

If it's been sitting for 3 years I would do as follows
1. Drain tank of all gas, give it some fresh gas.
2. Change the Spark Plugs
Attempt to start it. (Keep in mind it may take a few times to get all that old gas out of the lines)
Sitting it the worst thing for a rig. I advise never let it go without starting it ATLEAST once a month
If that doesn't work make sure it is getting fuel to the motor.
If so it could be your Distributor or Coil. Good luck

Will not start wnen less than one fourth tank of fuel. 2003 Yukon

Do you park on a hill? Try pumping the gas pedal a few times before you start it. Check that there is no fuel being dropped, check under the car for rusted fuel lines and any drips.

Hope this helps and vote for me please Thanks.
