Car drove fine on the way to work. Got off work, car won't start.

Put a brand new walboro 255hp in it less than 1000 miles ago.

Fuel pump is not coming on, no fuel squirts out of the shrader valve, even with the valve stem pushed down while the motors turning over.

Already pressed the fuel pump reset button thing numerous times.

And here is the icing. Filled it up yesterday, only gone about 30 miles. 20+ gallons still in the tank.

Now all I need is for you guys to tell me I don't have to drop the tank lol

What else should I check??

If you got an electric gas filler door, switch the leads for the door to the connection for the trunk and push the button. That should open the trunk until you can figure out why the true trunk button doesn't work.

See Jeff article on Fuel PUMP diagnosis for help in finding out why the pump is not running;

Sir Check the voltage on the inertia switch with a test light. It should come on when the ignition is keyed and time out.(chck it on both wires) If you do not get voltage at the inertia switch move to the FP relay and test cut through battery their. You should have two batterys their. Key and constant.Use jeffs print to trouble shoot this and also try and run the pump from the ALDL connctor. Jeff has a nice print on his troubleshooting page. I have used those pumps with very good results over the years in all kinds of cars and trucks. They are very reliable to say the least. Good luck sir and sounds like a simple problem. Maybe just a bad relay.

it kinda sounds like a fuse or relay since more than one thing quit at the same time

There is no fuse in the fuel pump circuit. There is no one relay that would effect all those systems.

Maybe have a look at the fuse links.

Sir try and give the fuse links a little TUG. If one is bad it will pull apart. The same battery may just feed both circuits. Not 100% shure because i do not have my prints handy. But its worth a shot. If one of the links is bad you can use an in line MAX fuse holder and an approperiat size maxi fuse wired in place of the link.Thank you gentelman and good luck Sir
