you have a short take it to a electrical shop so they can fix it for you.

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

That is where your fuse & pump relay is for your Fuel Pump system, The " Black Box " is a rear fuse box . Sound's like a wire or something else is loose in that area.


I have a 2009 Chevy Malibu LT , but mine just shut down . No power from rear fuse box to fuel pump , Ran hot wire direct to see if new pump even worked,( yes it does) now have to trace wire's from fuse box to pump to find the problem !!! $350.00 for fuel pump & $21.00 for fuel pump relay . And not done yet !!!!!!
