I am unable to find the fuel pump resistor on my Pontiac Gran Prix GT 3.8. The internet shows the location near the windshield wiper fluid bottle, but when my mechanic took this apart, there is no resistor. Does anyone know where this is located. Thank you
There is none. If the fuel pump is not working it's either underhood fuse #32 is blown, relay #14 in underhood fuse box is bad or the fuel pump in the gas tank is bad. Pages 6-62 thru 6-67 in your owner's manual describe the fuses, circuit breakers, and relays in your Grand Prix. Get a hammer and a helper. Have your helper try to start the car while you hit the bottom center of the gas tank with your hammer. Two or three whacks should do it. If the car starts fuel pump is definitely bad. If not, check that fuse and relay. Is your gas gauge working? If it's quit too there's a very good chance the fuse or relay is bad and no power is going to the fuel pump. HTH. -Jim
Thank you very much. My mechanic mentioned that there was no resistor found anywhere. I even looked with them. I will have him check the fuses has you have mentioned. in addition, when I turn the ignition key to the on position, I do not hear the fuel pump sending gas to the engine. Much appreciated and once again, thank you very much. Sincerely, Anthony D Angulo
You're welcome Anthony. Glad to help. BTW I have the exact same car. It's my "toy". I'm very familiar with them. -Jim
