Just replaced a fuel pump and fuel filter in a 2003 Denali XL 6.0L., Now I've found that I have no power to the fuel pump. I have tracked the power supply back to the fuel relay and found that the relay is working properly, but I am losing the power supply to the fuel pump somewhere between the fuel relay and the fuel pump. I have looked at the entire wire harness from the relay to the tank and can see no damage what so ever. I beleive that the only electrical connection between the relay and the pump is the one above the tank at the fuel pump and it looks brand new. Any body run into this problem before?
Yes, it was the connector at the fuel pump, had a small burnt spot in it, It was small enough that I didn't notice it when I replaced my fuel pump and had the same problem. Replaced connector and it fired right up.
Update on the above question. I originally picked up the replacement pump at the local pep boys and found that they had given me the wrong part. I was working on a 1500 and they gave me a pump for a 2500. Well, while packaging the wrong part back up to return, a small wiring pkg. was not put back in the box and left on my work bench. After returning the part and recieving the correct part and installing it, I found that the fuel pump still did not work. With the tank still lowered, I checked the voltage at the pigtail and found that I did have 12 volts. After scratching my head for a few minutes, I remembered that short wiring pigtail from the first pump that was still sitting on my work bench. I installed it between the fuel pump and the wiring harness and turned the key to the on position, wala! I had fuel !!! Evidently the new pumps are wired differently and need the short pigtail to convert the wire positions to match the new pumps. Funny though that the second pump that I purchased did not have this little pig tail in the box with the fuel pump. Hope this helps anyone else that may run into the same problem!
