21 people reported this problem
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.
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!
