1992 tahoe only starts if you put fuel in the tbi
the fuel pump works and it has new injectors
Oskar this is what i got from the manual. Again this could just be a start since it is a broad error.
Test the fuel pump control unit.
-Disconnect fuel module
- with test light and ignition "On", probe connector "C" to ground Circuit it OK if light is ON. There is an open if light is " OFF.
- Probe Connector terminal "C" to "D" with test light. Circuit is OK if light is "ON". There is an open in the ground circuit if light is "OFF"
- Ignition "OFF", probel connector terminals "A"to "D" with test light. Ignition "ON" test light should illuminate for two seconds. There is an open in the circuit if the light is "OFF".
- Replace fuel module if there is no twenty second fuel pump operation.
See the attached image for the location of the module.
When the key is first turned ON, without the engine running the ECM will turn the fuel pump relay ON for two seconds. This builds up fuel pressure to normal operating pressure. If the engine is not started within two seconds, teh ECM will shut the fuel pump OFF and wait until ignition reference pulses are present. The ECM contiunues to power the fuel pump during engine operation. If the fuel pump relay fails, it is backed up by the oil pressure switch, witch continues to operate the fuel pump as long as oil pressure remains above 28 kPa.
So check your fuel pump relay. The location is on the attached image.
Good luck for now and let us know how it is going....
i have a 99 with the same problem. Pressure gauge on the fuel reads roughly 51-52. Also have replaced the fuel pump twice now(yes they were bad). The original went out after 10 years and the second...Napa brand...went out driving down the road after 6 months. The check engine light is not on nor does it show any trouble codes. I am open to suggestions at this point. Tahoe is a 4x4 two door with the 350 engine.
go to accuratediesel.com. He has an altered EMC which can be installed in 10 min. He also posts detail trouble guild.
Did You Fix it? I have the same problem, No 3 seconds of power to fuel relay. It says solved but I don’t see the solution listed.
