1996 Chevrolet C1500 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

In the first part of your post, are you saying, you have to jump starter relay in order to get it to start? I looked at info for 96 c1500, 5.0L engine. If I understand you correctly, check the control side of relay, left side in the diagram. It needs voltage and ground both. Ground is a chassis ground, voltage comes from crank position of ignition switch and is wired through the clutch or neutral switch, depending on the tranny.

When the key switch is off and the engine is not running, do you have power to the coil ? Could be a problem with the key switch.

check 12V at pump terminal when on/cranking

hear/feel pump operation (if external to tank)

if low pressure (carby) disconnect fuel line and observe flow. If high pressure (FI) connect fuel pressure guage and observe pressure. Check fuel filter while doing all this. Filters are the source of many problems that start people messing with fuel pumps.

YOu should be able to time it somewhat without unplugging anything and if you get it close the computer will see that it stays when it is running.

The left brake lite out means your turn signal is out on that bulb. replace that bulb and both should work properly!

Use a multimeter at the plug to pump! If there is no power, check the fuses under the dash, as well as the fuse box under the hood! The lid under the hood will tell you which fuse operates the fuel system. Could just be a bad fuse, or a broken wire!

is it just the inside lights on the dash not working. it may just be the bulb/s they can both go at the same time. also the second relay is on top of the steering column a bit of a pain to get to. think you can get to it with the dash out..

you either have created a leak or an injector is stuck wide open and leaking down. Hook up a fuel pressure gauge and power up the injectors one at a time and see which one is doing the fuel pressure drop.
