GM Tech (Cam) :

Hello, I'm Cam.

GM Tech (Cam) :

There is no reset for the fuel pump, so how long does it run for when it does run?

JACUSTOMER-dk3h6k6q- :

it doesn't start

GM Tech (Cam) :

Ok, do you hare the fuel pump in the tank, even for 2 seconds after turnign the key on?

JACUSTOMER-dk3h6k6q- :

no

GM Tech (Cam) :

Ok, when did you last change the fuel filter?

JACUSTOMER-dk3h6k6q- :

The truck sat for a week while I was gone when I returned the battery was dead I charged the battery and the truck started , the next morning it would not start it is not getting any fuel, the truck ran fine prior to this.

GM Tech (Cam) :

OK, lets go through a couple things. First does the check engine light come on when you turn the key on?

JACUSTOMER-dk3h6k6q- :

no

JACUSTOMER-dk3h6k6q- :

no!

GM Tech (Cam) :

ok, that is a problem. is there a remote starter installed?

JACUSTOMER-dk3h6k6q- :

yes

GM Tech (Cam) :

ok check the wiring at the base of the column where the remote starter goes into wiring and look for damage to those connections.

JACUSTOMER-dk3h6k6q- :

I know it is not getting any gas--

GM Tech (Cam) :

But let me outline this.

GM Tech (Cam) :

the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controls the relay for the fuel pump.

GM Tech (Cam) :

The ingition switch powers the Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

GM Tech (Cam) :

With no check engine light on the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is not getting power and will no turn the pump relay on.

JACUSTOMER-dk3h6k6q- :

what if I disconnect the remote start module

GM Tech (Cam) :

Lets simply try this first, jump the red to the pink on the main ignition harness and see if the check engine light comes on.

GM Tech (Cam) :

WE need to take the logical steps to find this. What you have told me suggests we need to look at the ingition switch and wiring first.
