Saturn Vue: 2004 Saturn Vue with no power going to the fuel

Customer Question

2004 Saturn Vue with no power going to the fuel pump. Also car is full of fuel and cranks just fine but will not start. All fuses and relays under the hood are good. The car ran fine, sat for three days then would not start. The battery went dead and has been replaced.

Hello and welcome!

My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.

The fuel pump gets power from the fuel pump relay located in the under hood fuse block. There is a fuel pump fuse that feeds power to the fuel pump relay as well. Be sure that fuse is not blown and that the PCM is powering up that fuel pump relay while cranking. You can use a test light or a voltmeter to check for this after removing the fuel pump relay.

If the fuel pump fuse is blown, then either the feed wire to the pump is shorted out or the fuel pump itself is bad pulling too many amps. This will cause the fuse to blow so the pump will need to be replaced.

None of the fuses are blown. The car cranks but still no power at the pump.

then you will need to check the inputs to the fuel pump relay with the key on and cranking to see what is preventing the fuel pump relay from activating.
