Customer Question

Ok well I have a 1994 Chevy class 1500 4.3 v6 and the truck will start but it will die after 2 seconds of idling even if I pump the gas pedal it doesn't stay running for long have changed the fuel mapping sensor timing is good there is spark and there is compression I am completely stumped along with a couple of my busys that are mechanics pls help
JA: Are you certain it's the fuel pressure sensor that's in need of attention? What about the fuel rail? Have you checked it yet?
Customer: Uhm I'm not even op sure what the fuel rail is so I haven't checked it
JA: What is the model of your '94 Chevy?
Customer: It's a 94 class 1500 red
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am currently trying to fix it with one of my buddy's he's a mechanic we have recently changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel mapping sensor, and one more thing kind of a wired thing but when I turn on the emergency lights the truck will idle and run fine
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I know you are going to think I am crazy, but can you unplug the head light switch and see if the truck will start and run correctly?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I've done that but it doesn't do anything

Do you have a digital volt meter and a test light so we can do some testing?

Do you have internet access there? You will need to be with the truck so we can go over some testing.
