I was trying to solve for the fuel pump not running.


ok but after the pump change in the tank now it blows the fuse as soon as you turn the key on?

No not necessarily, I just did not know that the fuse was blown. The person who owned the truck told me that fuse had blown before when he had it. I checked it after installing pump because it still would not energize..

I unplugged the the fuel pump relay and then turned the ignition on and the fuse blowed immediately get under the hood and we need to unplug a few things and see if it still blows.follow all your fuel injector wires back close to the fire wall back there will be a plug to disconnect the fuel injectors unplug that and see if it blows

ok that is the IAC valve if the fuse STPS blowing when you unplug that inspect the wiring harness to it and make sure none of the wires are cut or pinched if they all look good replace the IAC and it should stop blowing the fuse
