Question about 1996 Chevrolet C3500

1 Answer

1996 chevy 3500 won't start, fuel pump in tank not working, has no current to fuel pump with ignition turned on. I don't believe there is current to fuel relay when ignition is turned on.

I checked all fuses. This truck has 2 fuel tanks, I have already changed the inline fuel pump and the filter. Neither fuel pumps are working. Problem was intermittent at first. Last time truck was running it would stall when trying to accelarate. It would only keep running at near idle.There is battary power to fuel relay but no keyed power.

SOURCE: 1991 camaro RS Fuel pump not working- no power to pump

If the oil pressure switch has two wires on it it may be one that shuts down the pump. I'm not positive but I think it completes a ground circuit, not the hot side though (but may run through a relay.) There should be a pump relay under the hood with a group of other relays. I don't have a wiring diagram for your car but you can get a basic diagram in most inexpensive manuals. They wont usually give you locations but at least you can get an idea of how the system works. There usually is a fuse. If the fuse block is not labeled, use a test light and probe the back of every fuse for power with the key on (takes about ten minutes and faster than trying to find info) change any that are blown. The most likely culprit is a relay, so after testing fuses look for it. (usually on drivers fender or on right side near firewall.) Worst case, trace the power lead all the way through the harness 'till you find where power begins.Testing is important here...I could give you much better info if I was there to do it for you. Most important is to stay "on track" till you find the place where power ends. Don't jump all over the place or you will end up doing an incomplete test.

Check spark plugs, leads, distributor cap & rotor arm, fuel pump, fuel filter, coil pack(s), relays, replace any items that are suspect IE Fuel filter which has probably not been changed since new even though they should be changed on all vehicles every 18 months, all of this can be done at home & will save you a lot of bucks in mechanic/garage fees,

You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem to proceed.
Check for spark at the plugs, and fuel pressure at the injectors.
You might want to check the computer for trouble codes too.

I would suspect the fuel pump is the problem, it may be sticking at times and this causes a no start. The pump is located inside the fuel tank and it is electric.

could be fuel elated, there are two fuel pumps, the high pressure pump to feed the injector system and the lift pump to get fuel from tank to the high pressure pump. Check fuel filter also and start there. The fuel pumps are expensive. What have you checked so far and eliminated?

My 1996 3500 has two fuel tanks with a pump in between there is no power there is there a fuse for this pump


The balance fuel pump is supplied power from the ignition E fuse. Power then goes through the balance pump relay which is controlled by the balance pump module.

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu 3.1 Liter. I was driving it last night, and I parked it, everything was fine. 15 minutes later I had to go somewhere, went to fire her up, and it wouldn't start. It's...


Assuming there's enough fuel in the tank - If the fuel filter is extremely clogged - try starting with the fuel cap off so it won't have work against the vacuum in the fuel tank. Fuel caps have breather holes which can be clogged also. The holes release the vacuum in the tank slowly. If it starts ok then, the problem sits in fuel supply - for example the fuel filter.

Smell the exhaust pipe - if it smells strongly like petrol, most likely it's the ignition system requiring service. (sparkplugs, distributer, sparklines)
