This answer was rated:

Ihave a 1987 s10 pickup i have replaced the fuel pump and relay but still have a problem its not getting fire to the fuel pump or throttle body I can run a hot wire to the fuel pump and it will run but the throttle body wont come on I dont find any bad fuses on the fuse panel is there somewhere else to look or do you think I have another problem.



What engine size?

Do you have spark?

yes I have spark I can prime the throttle body and it will start

engine size 2.5

Ok, first off either replace or properly check the "ECM B" fuse with a meter. A visual inspection is not good enough. This fuse powers the fuel pump relay and the oil pressure bypass switch. Let me know the results of testing/replacing the fuse and we can continue from there.


Do you have a meter to check voltages?
