How do you replace one or more of the sockets in the fuse or relay block of a 98 Chevy Express 3500 5700 V8 where the fuel pump relay plugs in?
If the dealer can't order them go to the wrecking yard. I have now accomplished this repair. To extract the fuse/relay block from the LH front corner of the engine compartment, the master cylinder has to be moved aside. Its lines do not need to be disconnected. The block is secured by one screw at …its front right corner. To get to this screw a universal 10mm socket is useful so that the washer bottle does not have to be moved aside. The block is unhooked from its retainer at its left rear corner. Lift the block up and to the right (of the vehicle). The lower cover of the fuse/relay block is released by pushing a small screwdriver into the slots on each side of the block. It is worked loose from the looms on its right side. The overheated socket has to be released. There is a pronged white plastic retainer that is slid to the right (of the vehicle) just enough to release the affected socket. Pull the socket out of the bottom of the block as much as the wire will allow. Unfold the twin lock from the wire insulation and bend the sharply wire back and forth until the socket breaks off the end of the wire. This minimizes the loss of wire length. Lightly scrape tarnish from the wire strands and crimp the new socket onto the wire with a twin lock crimping tool. Reinsert the socket up into the block and push the retainer back into place, making sure all sockets are properly located and retained. The socket I used was slightly different from the original. It has a spring retainer that is not used in this application. This retainer was bent in so that it did not function. The necessary tangs on the socket for the retainer are present. "Reassemble in reverse order of disassembly." The bottom cover of the fuse/relay block is a little hard to get in place but be careful and it will go. (MORE)
Where is the pump relay and how can you check it to make sure the fuel pump works on a '97 Chevy van 5.7 engine?
Answer . You can call the dealer and ask if they know where it is as far as checking it you should get someone to hold the relay and turn on the key but dont start it then turn it off do this several times and if the person holding it hears clicking or feels it switching on it should be good.. A…nswer . \nOn my '92 van it is on the firewall, just under the hood, near the center. I have not had a relay failure but I have had three fuel pump failures on my van. When you first turn the ignition on, before starting the engine, the relay will "click" on for a few seconds, then click off. If you pop the hood and have someone standing near it they will hear it click on and off. More importantly, if someone can be near the fuel tank when you do this they should hear the fuel pump briefly run for the same amount of time (it should sound like a faint humming sound). To really check it you would need to use a test light to see if 12V is getting to the fuel pump / relay in and out terminals.\n. \nIn general, the fuel pump will last longer if you keep a fair amount of fuel in the tank. Don't run the tank dry (or even nearly dry). I like to fuel up when the fuel guage drops to 1/4 tank. The fuel actually runs through the pump motor and cools it. If the tank level is too low and the gas sloshes to one side or another the pump will run dry. You probably won't notice it, but the pump can overheat and wear out or fail prematurely.\n. \nGood Luck\nRichard Rea (MORE)
Answer . \nFuel Pump is located inside the fuel tank. Both the sensor and pump are combined.
Answer . The fuel pump relay switch is located on a metal tang under the hood on the top center of the firewall. It's pretty much directly above the radiator area.
Open hood, look to your left top cowl (firewall) , you will see two relays, the larger of the two is the fuel relay.
Answer . \nThe fuel pump is located in the tank.It is part of a removable assembly of parts comprised of the fuel level sending unit, a filter screen and the pump.\nThe tank must be dropped from the vehicle and access to the 'assembly' is gained from the top of the fuel tank........lots of laughs… to be had here in the drive way....!!!. Answer . \nThey asked where is the fuel pump relay, not the fuel pump itself.\n. \nThe relay is under the hood, and on a 1997 model it is in the fuse/relay center near the battery. There is a sticker on the back of the cover to tell you what each relay is for (but you have to read it upside down).\n. \nI think it is similar on a 1995 astro, but if it is not, look around. It is definitely under the hood. Remove any plastic cover and see if there are relays underneath.. Answer . \non a 1993 astro it's on passenger side near ac unti it's a rectangualer unit (MORE)
Answer The fuel pump is in the gas tank. It is not easy , first before you do it make sure that is the problem.Get a auto manual if your not up to it take it to a good repair shop and be ready to pay $600.00 to $700.00 to have it done. on those vans the conections usually go bad before the pump,…check the wires under the van by the front of gas tank.this happend to me. The best way to tell if it's working, is to listen for a sort "whine" for about 5-10 seconds when first turning the key to the on position without trying to start the engine. The noise you hear is from the fuel pump in the gas tank. Having driven several of these vans over several years, 99% of the time, the failure will be the pump itself. As far as replacement, if it's a cargo van and you're not too concerned about the floor in the van, I measured and cut a hole with a hole saw over the gas tank (carefully) where the fuel pump is located. Then I could pull the pump. No dropping of the gas tank, but you will have to cover the hole and seal it so that no exhaust fumes can leak into the van. I used a thick piece of metal, gasket material and sealer with screws for the next time I might have to do this. You also have to be careful you don't puncture the top of gas tank and a spark from drilling into it could be a "Ka Boom"! They were a common failure problem. Honda Sedans have a plate over the fuel pump in the gas tank in the trunk. Makes for easy replacement. Their pumps aren't cheap though. About $175 (MORE)
Answer . \nUsually there is a relay that is the same next to it, just swap them and try it..
\n. \n. \nIt is under the hood on the firewall above the air conditioner. Contrary to what the other guys said, it is not in the gas tank.
Answer . \nIt might be on the firewall under the hood on the left side.BEst of luck....I to am haveing trouble with astro van.
Answer . Under the driver side of van just in front of the fuel tank along the frame just inside the frame rail.
Answer . Under the hood on the passenger side, attached to the firewall directly opposite of the glove box are attached two relays next to eachother. The one with 5 wires going to it is your fuel pump relay, the one with 4 wires is not.
2000 express turns off only in warm weather new fuel pump changed fuel relay it does get hot is this normal for fuel relay?
A relay should not get much hotter than the air around it. I clean carpet with my 1998 Chevy Express van and I noticed the same issue of the relay getting extra hot. This was because my van is stationary and the carpet cleaning machine runs from a drive axle going to the van's engine. Not only is th…ere a rather air tight cover over the fuse compartment under the hood, but the engines heat circulating around this area doesn't help much. Even with the issue of engine heat and a somewhat air tight fuse compartment, there shouldn't be excessive heating of the relay. Here are two reasons for the excess heat. First, if the fuel pump is demanding more current flow from the battery it can cause the relay to get hot. More resistance in the pump due to a poor connection, or possibly there is a physical resistance associated with the pump- a worn or seized bearing, a clogged filter etc. These are reasons a relay could get hot. Secondly, any poor connection- the wiring harness under the vehicle which is going to the pump has a connector that is notorious for heating and cooling/expanding and contracting, which will drive a person nuts. It took me weeks to figure out that this was the reason my van died randomly. I had gone so far as to remove the fuel pump and put a jumper between pins 87 and 30. At least if you do this you will be able to hear the fuel pump running, or not, without the noise of the vehicles engine drowning it out. It was at this point that I realized that this poor connection at the wiring harness was causing the increased resistance at the relay, and hence it getting hotter. While we're on the subject of fuel pump relays, note too that it is the vehicles main computer that turns on this relay. If you've ever accidentally shorted out the computer's + to this relay to ground, you're fuse to the ecm ( electronic control module [computer]) might or might not blow. Either way there is a good chance that the computer will stop sending this 'switching' voltage to the relay. The computer is in charge of this relay primarily for safety reasons. In case of an accident the relay removes power to the fuel pump. A good thing this is surely, but buying a whole new computer in the event of this circuit failing can be cost prohibitive to many of us poor drivers. BTW, used computers at a pick and pull junk yard are pennies on the dollar compared to the dealership. I paid a whopping $27 for my 1998 Chevy express computer. The junk yard will give you a list of compatible models that have the same computer in them. I got mine out of a 2500 truck. No tools needed to do the job, but always unhook the battery before removal of a computer. These Chevy's have a tendency to die at stop lights after a computer swap, until it 'relearns' the idle setting. This is normal. If you are short on cash, or in a jam and need to get your vehicle home, either bypass the relay with a jumper, or in the case of the computer not activating the relay to the fuel pump, you can simply run a 12+ wire to terminal 30 ( or whichever wire is + to the pump). If you take a wire from another 12volt+ circuit which is switched with the key AND remains ON during RUN ( like the 12+ coil[ be careful not to short out the ignition module]) then when you turn off the key the pump will also turn off. For safety reasons always use a test light to find the proper wire, find a good accurate wiring diagram, and replace the computer as soon as possible. (MORE)
Look for two small black boxes mounted on the firewall on the passenger side. They are up high and are side by side. It should be one of these. On my 1995 they are both identical. You can switch the wires around on the two boxes and this will test if one of the relays is bad. Another good test when …trouble shooting a fuel pump is to find the wire going to the pump and check to see if power is getting to it when you turn on the ignition. Use a basic 12 volt tester and have someone turn the key on. I just went through the same thing with my 1995 Astro. Mine turned out to be the pump, had to drop the tank and enjoy a day crawling around in the dirt. (MORE)
On the passenger side under the hood. Standing in front facing the van with the hood raised, look towards the left hood hinge, there's a bracket mounted on the fire wall with two square units plugged in. The smaller one is the fuel pump relay.
There are a few things to know. You will need snap ring pliers, and a little ingenuity to work off the pump, and then to re-install. easy on the wiring, there is a mount for the wiring on top off the axle. There is a special tool to remove the fuel lines from the old fuel pump. Then they sn…ap back on the new pump assembly. It isn't so bad, I did the pump on my suburbans 42 Gallon tank. Same pump.

After driving several of these vans for a number of years, the best way I can tell is to listen for the fuel pump coming on when you first turn the key without starting the engine. You'll hear sort of whine for about 5-10 seconds from the fuel pump in the gas tank. As a rule, about 99%, if you don't… hear the pump, the pump is out. (MORE)
Answer . \nThere isn't one. Chevy doesn't use inertial switches for their fuel pumps. There is a relay in the fuse box, but it's not "re-setable"
Answer . \nthere should be more than one fuel pump, one in your tank and atleast one other closer up front.
it is under the hood in the black box in front of drivers side. There is several relays in there. And I believe fuses as well. The fuel pump relay is is rectangular. NOT SQUARE. there is 2 rectangular relays in there, one of them controls the fuel pump, the other controls something else, i think …AC. switch them to make sure it is the fuel pump relay is good or bad by seeing if it works afterwards or the AC works (the other relay). If so then replace. If not, then pray... cause it will be expensive. (MORE)
Answer . there should be other relays in the vehical that are identicle, try swithing them.
They hid it. Facing the vehicle it is located below and to the right of the master cylinder above the computer almost inside if the left fender. Should say Delco Fuse Center on it. There trucks are notorious for steering column wiring problems. The issue is that the horn and air bag share the same …wire passage. Got to be very careful. (MORE)
The fuel pump relay allows the pump to be turned on and off. On a1986 Chevy Astro van, the fuel pump relay is located under the hoodand directly in front of the passenger seat, to the right of theA/C clutch control relay.
the relay is located in the engine compartment fuse box which is located just above the steering box on the right side of the van. open the box and the relay on the center will be the pump relay
The Chevy Express fuel pump fuse will be located in the fuse box.The exact location of the fuse is dependent upon the year of thevehicle.
I have a 2000 Chevrolet Express G3500 cargo van and the fuel tank capacity is 119 litres. I believe that equates to just over 31 gallons.
open hood, look to the right, near to wipers fluid resevoir. open the black box cover. is there.
on the fender right next to the battery. it will have 2 one of those will be it. look for a black box mounted on the quarter panel
Not knowing what year your truck is I would say it's under the hood, drivers side inside the 'power distribution" box. Under the cover shows you which relay is what.
first off you definetly have to syphon the gas out of the tank, then drop the tank. if im correct the fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank.
The 1990 G20 Chevrolet Van fuel relay switch is located on thefront of the fuel tank. The relay switch is next to the fuel pump.
On my "96" 1500 Pk-up. Its under the hood, on the diver's side, in the fuse box.
you did not list year but it is hidden on the 82 corvette , located behind the computer(ECM) mounting plate next to battery , on the back side of black plate along with the ESC. Small rounded box about 2 inches by 3 inches. May have to pull carpet back behind seat to undo screw there to help remove …mounting plate for ECM. can not see it with out removing this big plate. Crazy - remove battery then ECM then plate then relay. Before that double check your connections for the distibutor 4 wire plug and the oil pressure sensor plug , these signals have to be there to energize the relay for fuel pump. (MORE)
I do believe it is in the fuel tank, with a inline filter just in front of the rear wheel I do believe it is in the fuel tank, with a inline filter just in front of the rear wheel
Where is the left rear brake and turn signal relay located on a 2010 Chevy express van. V-6
Most likely inside the fuel tank. You will have to drop the fuel tank and remove the retaining ring on top of the tank and the pump/gauge/filter assembly will come out.
If the relay is bad, the pump will not pump. For about 15 bucks, it's the easiest thing to check. There are other things that will keep fuel from reaching the injectors, but start here. At Autozone: About this product: Part Number: 19264 Weight: 0.05 lbs. Pricing: $14.99 It depends on what yo…u hear when you turn the key. If you can hear the pump whirring and a "click" when the system is pressurized, then your relay is probably okay, and your pump is trying to pressurize the system. If you hear nothing, then replace the relay and try again. If you still don't hear the fuel pump ... pumping, then you probably need to replace the fuel pump. If the relay is okay, and the pump is trying, then it could be the fuel filter, pressure regulator, the injectors or the ignition system. Blah blah blah... (MORE)
It should be in the power distribution box under the hood on the drivers side.
There is a big black box on the driverside inner fender well by the battery, remove the top off of it, flip lid over and read and you will see were the relay is. It is in that box. ( electrical center )
It is inside of the fuel tank. You have to remove gas tank to service it.
Why won't our 05 Chevy Express van start after we changed the fuel pump when it will run on starter fluid?
make sure you prime the new pump with fuel so it is not dry, pour or squirt fuel into pump. From original poster:. We took the van to a mechanic. He tested both the old and the new fuel pump. They both worked. We checked all of the fuses and relays and they were all good. So he changed out the fus…e/relay panel under the hood of the van and then it worked. The van has been running fine ever since. (MORE)

Under the hood on firewall beneath brake booster in a bracket holding two relays, the other is the auto shutdown relay. They are purchased and replaced as a pair.
You should find it up high on the firewall on the passenger side, there will be two relays there, if I remember correctly it will be the one closest to the fender.
pump costs 4-500 and it's on top of the tank which is about $400.00 labor
Type your answer here... in gas tank, empty drop down tank after diconnecting all quick release connectors and its on top took me 3 hours and it was my first
under the hood in the fuse box. it should be labeled on the back side of the box cover.
they r 2 relays one under dash looks like 4 way flasher relay the other 1 is under hood mounted to left of windshield washer pump
You must remove the fuel tank. Just disconnect the wiring you may have to drop the tank partly just watch that the tank does not fall the whole way down as the fall could cause the plastic lines to break. Once you do this drop the tank out. The circle ring on the top I just use a screwdriver to turn… it then the pump and sending unit will pull right out. Then Just do it all again in reverse. It not a hard fix so you will be just fine. (MORE)
The fuel pump is in the fuel tank and the fuel tank will have to beremoved to access it. If you do not have the skill or equipment todo this properly, I suggest taking it to a shop.
