Question about 1997 Buick Park Avenue

1 Answer

How can I connect five-wire pump harness to four-wire body harness?

Recently had to replace fuel pump and it did not come with the updated wiring harness with only the four wire pins; it came with the old style with five. Where does the extra wire go or is it used at all?

Commonly submerged in the fuel tank. Some require the removal of the bottom rear seat, others need entire tank dropped to access.
If memory serves, you will need to drop the tank to access on the P.Ave.
Save yourself some time and pop off the rear seat just to be sure.

Drain all gas as much as possible for weight reasons, Unhook fuel lines, unhook electrical connections, and ground connections, filler tube, and straps, then tank will drop out. Remove retaining ring on sending unit remove unit from tank taking note how it comes out because its got to go back in the same way it came out, chg. pump on sending unit there is one electrical plug, reinstall unit in tank with retaining ring, assemble in reverse order.

You may have to replace it but money wise it is a lot of times cheaper to convert over to standard shock/strut suspension than it is to buy the pump

I'm replacing the four wire harness on the fuel pump of an 04 Impala 3.4. I don't have the OE connector and the new one has four white wires with A-D on the plug. Which color goes to which letter?

For the fuel pump motor the gray wire is voltage. The black wire is ground. The two wires on the left are for fuel gage sending unit.

What makes the fuel pump not kick on on a 92 Oldsmobile Cutlass

There is a red wire close to the battery in the front. It's not connected to anything. Apply positive voltage and that will run your pump for testing purposes.

Won't start new motor

Is it carved or efi??If efi do this::locate your throttle body,pull the air intake hose loose from the throttle body,spray starting fluid or carb cleaner into the throttle body opening, push the hose back onto the throttle body then try to start the car.If it starts & runs for a few seconds then dies,you've got a No Fuel problem.If it doesn't start at all,you've got a No Spark problem.If its a no fuel issue,turn the key on & listen for the fuel pump priming sound.If you don't hear it,check for a blown fuel pump fuse,defective fuel pump relay,a defective computer power relay or a tripped inertia switch.If they're OK,disconnect the harness at the fuel pump,turn the key on and use a voltmeter to test for battery voltage.If voltage is present,the pump is bad.If voltage isn't present,but its present at the fuel pump relay harness, there's most likely a short/open in the wiring harness between the FP relay & pump.You didn't list your vehicle info,so I'm unsure of which type ignition you've got.
Most no starts on a new engine are caused by a ground wire you forgot to connect,wiring harness not plugged in or a timing issue.

I changed the fuel pump relay still dnt wanna start now im bout to change the whole fusebox harness

Did you check for voltage at the relay socket before replacing the relay ? Most relays have four or five pins , two should have battery voltage , one goes to the fuel pump an the last one is a ground supply from the PCM - powertrain control module - engine computer if you know what that is . If you look on the bottom of the relay it should have some numbers 85,86 , 30,87 ! 30 an 87 are the fuel pump side . 30 is battery voltage for the pump ! 85 is battery voltage an 86 is ground from PCM . VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis Before replacing wiring harness test ! Check out these videos... Fuel Pump Electrical Circuits Description and Operation

1988 Pont. Bonn.3.8 replaced fuel pump relay and replaced blown fuse behind glove box still pump doesn't work. Gas gauge is pegged on full does this mean anything

Bad ground. It runs to the front of the car. You can cut it and ground it to the body. Make sure the battery to body ground is good also.

My car is not starting and thinking it's the fuel pump. Try jumping it and still not go. Alternator and starter are fine. So I've removed the fuel pump from the tank. There's a white connector that...

Four wires the the sender unit. One will have 12 volts all the time with key on. This is the fuel gauge. One will have power for 2 seconds when the key is turned on. This is the fuel pump. Two of them will have a constant ground. Grounds will be black, black with a colored stripe on it, or have a black stripe. Check the harness plug plug for voltage, again it only last for 2 seconds. If you have voltage at the wire. replace the pump. If not, probe the wire about 3 inches back from the plug, check for voltage again. If you have voltage there repair or replace the plug. Most wires break right behind the harness plug.

I have no gas gauge always reads 3/4 to full, cant find a promblem

It was an upgrade you need to cut wiring harness and replace it with the new connection system .or it could be a problem with the fuel pressure sensor that plugs into the top of the pump wiggle the wires

Does the fuel pump wiring run through, or to, the body control module (BCM)? Thanks

Hello! The fuel pump, fuel pump relay, and the fuel tank pressure sensor are carried by a wiring harness to connectors that plug into the BCM...Outputs from the BCM are carried by wiring harness to there termination point and connect via plugs...Signals inter the BCM, are processed internally, and exit via connectors...Guru...Saailer

How do you change a fuel pump on a 2002 GMC sierra, 1500 HD?

Remove the bolts that hold the bed box to the frame, disconnect the rear light wiring harness and the fuel filler pipe. Set up a pair of saw horses or something behind the truck. Then have four guys to lift on all four corners and set the bed on the stand you have ready. The bed is heavy! And there is the fuel pump! Replace with the new and take care to put the wiring harness for the fuel pump back where it was. Replace the bed, bolts and connect the lights. You are ready to go! Takes about two hours if you don't break the welds that hold the nuts for the bed bolts loose. Good luck!

It should be four wires. Gray is power to the pump, Purple is gauge control, and two black wires that are ground. You should have battery voltage on the gray for 3 sec. after the key is turned on. Did you replace the plug-in to the pump when you replaced the pump? The pumps usually come with new plugs
