Could be you got a defective fuel pump. I work at NAPA and sometimes it happens. HTH. -Jim

Indeed as jim says it could be a bad pump. Also check everything you did make sure something didnt come unplugged.


i thought the same thing but when we take it out and put power to it it turns..


Its gotta be a problem with the wiring if the fuse, relay and pump are good. Have you checked if you have power to it and a good ground.

Bad writing would also have caused the relay to go bad. generally fuses and relays don't go bad. My 1986 Chevy c10 has most of its factory fuses and relays in it.

Bad " BCM " , mine went bad twice partially , many functions controled by "bcm" and if 1 thing goes south the whole thing has to be changed ,,,,, bummer .....................
