The engine failed to start although the starter was spinning.
AAA diagnosed it as a possible fuel delivery issue, and took it to a repair service. The diagnosis was proven correct. It also caused the rear fuse block located adjacent to the pump to burn out.
The car would not start. Took it into the dealership and they told me that it was the fuel pump. They specifically said that it overheated and also damaged the relay.
fuel pump relay keeps going out
Starter tries to start but will not fire car. This occured without any previous signs of a problem.
FAIL TO START
I too, ran into the problem of car not starting. After investigation, I discovered that the fuel pump relay fuse was burnt badly...due to the fuel pump going bad. Sadly, it appears that GM is aware of this problem with this model/make and have did nothing to warn or make consumers aware or bothered to do a RE-CALL as they should have.

Morever, it is very difficult to even find the fuse block/box at a reasonable price for repair. $200 and up for the replacement box. Are you friggin kidding me? Just for a fuse board!

Will be getting rid of vehicle after reparing. Not going thru this issue every 2 or 3 years..replacing a fuel pump and relay switches. GM I'm disappointed!

Mr. G
Parked on an incline,99,Cadillac cranked once I gt it level.(6gal/fuel).Drove normal,10miles..couple hours later it turns over &won't crank.After 5tries I noticed I didn't here My fuel pump no longer..Can u guys give me ur best insight..Before I make any investments
Fuel pump went out and the fuse block was burt also. I'm wondering where the fuse block is located in reference to the fuel pump.
Won't turn over
