Hi and welcome to Just Answer!


Which engine is in your Buick, 4 or 6 cyl.?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Check the 60 amp fuse under the hood in the fuse box for battery power first.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
main fuse has power, but 4 smaller fuses do not
The ignition switch fuse under the hood has power?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
You are dealing with a bad ignition switch if the wiring is intact.

is there no relay in sequence with the pump?
Yes there is, but it is after the fuses so if the fuses arent hot the switch is bad.
