Asked by Nov 02, 2014 at 10:13 AM about the 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


To the best of my knowledge; there is no reset button for the fuel pump on this vehicle; or for that matter on any other common vehicle. Some electrical items on vehicles are protected by circuit breakers; which may have a reset button on them. However, I do not believe the fuel pump is protected by a circuit breaker. The circuit breakers are typically located in the underhood or under dash fuse block. There may be a diagram showing the functions which each item in the fuse block protects; either on the cover for the fuse block; or in the owner's manual or the factory service manual. If you are asking this question because the fuel pump in your Tahoe stopped working; it would be worthwhile to consider that there is a known defective part in the electrical wiring for the fuel pump on this model; called the fuel pump wiring harness. This is a short, simple harness that costs less than $15. I would recommend having this harness replaced before buying a new fuel pump or doing anything else to the system; because it is the cause of more fuel pump stoppages than anything else. I would also disconnect and thoroughly clean the ground connection for the fuel pump; and also make sure the original ground wire from the engine to the firewall has not been removed or discarded. If there is now no ground wire from the engine to the firewall; it is important to buy or fabricate and install one. This can solve many mysterious electrical problems.
