Some one said there is a fuel reset button if you run out of gas? Where is it located? Or is there one?
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello, no there isn't one. If you have a fuel issue, check fuel pressure. If you turn the key on, no crank, can you hear the pump run for a couple of seconds?

You might check the circuits at the fuel pump relay. My info says it is located under the dash, driver side, behind kick panel.

I got three sons, within two years of age, two of them are twins. They are in their mid 20s now. All the boys worked part time through highschool. The twins pooled their money for their first car, shared it for a while.

The firebird should have a fuel pump prime connector, underhood, passenger side firewall, probably a gray wire with electrical connector, nothing plugged into connector. If you run B+ to the connector, the pump should run, you don't have to use the key. I probably should tell you to use an inline fuse on the jumper, run it between the prime connector and positive battery post. If the pump won't run, you'll have to check B+ and ground at the pump connector.

Hello, it was the fuel pump, we cut a hole in the top above the fuel tank, and replaced it, took about 2 hrs instead of dropping the tank out, worked out great, I found out that the fuel pump in those cars when run dry a few times burns them out. Its all good now! Thanks for your help,

Fawn
