GM Tech (Cam) :

can you jump the pins of the fuel pump relay? Pins 30 to 87

Customer :

GM Tech (Cam) :

Well, pull the relay out use a wire to jumper the place the pins of the relay go into.

Customer :

GM Tech (Cam) :

If you jump those pins together, the pump should run.

Customer :

Customer :

Customer :

it wasnt sraying at all until u told me to do that

GM Tech (Cam) :

OK, so the pump was not working before.

Customer :

the theft light is still on to

GM Tech (Cam) :

This means that fuse block,. ECM or wiring is bad .

GM Tech (Cam) :

Theft does nto disable the pump, only the injectors.

Customer :

Customer :

Customer :

i tried every thing

Customer :

i tried the 30 minute procedure but nothing i tried the toggle switch but nothing put a new fuel pump in

GM Tech (Cam) :

But the light on solid if it is not running is normal.

GM Tech (Cam) :

when it flashes then we have a theft issue .

Customer :

ok so the theft light can stay on and it dont have any thing to do with the injectors

Customer :

as long as it is solid

GM Tech (Cam) :

No, it does disable the injectors when flashing but on solid it does not. IT will not stop the pump from running.
