Question about Chevrolet Silverado 2500
If you are sure the fuel pump relay is working, check continuity from the pump to the relay socket. These wires love to corrode. When you turn your ignition on, the fuel pump will only run for a couple seconds before it shuts off via the automatic shutdown relay. Make sure you are checking power within this window. The PCM (powertrain control module) is what completes the ground in order for the relay to send power to the pump. If the PCM does not recieve a signal from several sensors (mainly the Crank Sensor) it will not turn on the pump. You may want to check these sensors, is the check engine light on? You can scan it to see if any sensors have thrown a code. Be sure all applicable fuses are ok, the PCM may have its own fuse, check that even if the fuel pump fuse is ok. Your Truck may also have an inertia switch for the fuel pump which shuts it off during an accident. Check that as well.

before you drop tank again, check fuses & relay.then disconnect fuel line @ filter turn key to on position should hear fuel pump run and get gas stream out of line. if no flow from line new pump faulty be sure & remove negative battery cable first good luck.

take the six bed bolt loose and then take three buddies slide the bed back put in the new pump slide it back n place and put the bed bolts back in. if u drop the tank u can easily break the hard plastis lines that go to the fuel tank. u only have to take the fill lines and taillight wires loose this way its alot quicker, and easier.
