1997 Adventurer Fuel Issues

Trying to locate the Fuse or Relay to test to see if its one of those or the fuel pump itself that has gone bad. I have a 97 Adventurer on a Chevy p30 chassis. Also does anyone know the pinout on the connector? so I can climb under and see if its getting power back to the pump.

When you first turn on the ignition to start, the fuel pump should activate for a short time. If no ignition spark detected, it will shut off. In a quiet place, you should be able to hear the pump if outside the RV.

Most all fuses and relays for driving functions are usually in a box under the hood.

I'm getting no noise from the tank that's why I think its either a Fuse or Relay or ultimately the pump. I checked all the fuses under the dash in the drivers compartment and they all tested good, but I don't know if there's another one. most cars have a relay box under the hood but I don't see one outside the front hood not sure if its under the doghouse or not.

There is often a second fuse panel under the dash. It might be down near the driver's feet or higher. Some RVs have a section of the dashboard that comes off and you can access fuses there.

You could crawl underneath and test the wires to the fuel pump with a meter while someone else turns the key.

Some GM engines needed oil pressure to keep the fuel pump running. There is a pressure switch near the oil pressure sender.

It still has a timer to run the pump before starting, but if you jump the switch, it should run the pump, for testing.
