Electrical problem
2002 GMC Sierra V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 100594 miles

Truck was parked two nights ago with low fuel. Next time I tried to start it, it would not. I assumed the 10 month old fuel sending unit went bad and warrantied the sending unit(oem part). Made no difference. I have noticed the fuel gauge doesn't work(currently has about a half tank of fuel) and the highlight on shift indicator that tells what gear it's in is no longer there. &Quot;Fuel" fuse shows power on both sides with key on, "Fuel" relay shows no power at all where it would plug in to fuse box. I jumped from DRL relay to fuel only to get truck home and it did start. However, once I put truck in reverse to move it, truck died and i'm back with the same problem. Any advice?Thank you for your time.

Do you
have the same problem?

Yes, underhood fuse block. Your owners manual should give fuse location and label, if not, maybe I can find a picture?

If u could find a picture that would be great, seeing as my truck did not come with a owners manual. I appreciate all your help!

Do you have any idea on what would've caused this to occur?

I'd have to check for voltage at the ecm B fuse. Maybe a wiring circuit problem? If the fuse is blown, a faulty fuel pump might cause it. In the picture, fuse number 30-- 20 amp should be the ecm B fuse. You should be able to look at an online owners manual for free. gmownerscenter.yahoo.com, try that link.
