In part one of this series ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVj_NJaCkgM ) we diagnosed this Chevy Silverado that had a rich running condition and we determined that the Fuel Pump Control Module was to blame. In this installment of the SMA show we will replace that module ( FPCM ) and reflash it. Also some bonus footage from Mrs.O as she shows us "Lifehack #1"

    Great content. If it's ok to ask, how much do you charge to flash program a module?

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan Roberts says:

    After a new NAPA fuel pump install, I also replaced and flashed a new FPCM and still get a P096e code. No other codes. Any suggestions? 2008 5.3L 1500

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Cherry says:

    How can we manually reprogram the fscm? Driving a buick enclave 2009. Fuel System Control Module needs to be programmed.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Billy Collins says:

    The struggle is real.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sircharlescv says:

    Video starts at 43 seconds. Entry BS way to long

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Glover says:

    I changed mine and still have code

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars twwtb says:

    Using pliers to hold the nail is a great tip. I'll remember that next time I drive one of those tiny brads. Thanks Mrs. O! 🙂

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Hanna says:

    Having same issues with my Yukon! I’m about a thousand dollars into throwing parts at it !!! I’m going to check my black box tomorrow For any broken wires or corrosion

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Devon Gates says:

    If one of these modules was goin out would it cause low fuel pressure and hard start with a lean code

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew Richmond says:

    Too bad this isnt on an older vehicle. I have a 2002 Ranger 3.0 with similar symptoms. fiddling with evap changes nothing and fuel trims are pegged at -30. cant figure out why.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sean Ovens says:

    I sure appreciate and enjoy your videos. You're a good mechanic. Thanks

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew Sweet says:

    You know, I've got a 2014 Silverado and I was l just thinking yesterday how I would love to trade it out for a good old mechanical machine free from modules and needing the right java computer software just to install a new part… what are we doing here!?!?! Seriously! Look at the mess good ol' John Deere is doing right now, not letting anyone who knows how to turn a wrench try to fix their own equipment. I should have been born in the 40's or 50's back when things were built for simplicity and durability. The way we're all headed as a society leaves me shaking my head…

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 10 Second Channel says:

    Wow all the money you have to spend just to fix a dumb computer module. GM trash! Sooner or later this is how everything needs to be replaced! Hell next we’ll need a computer just to change our or windshield wipers! Guess I gotta save up some cash and take my truck to the stealer ship! Was hoping it would be a easy fix! Nice video BTW!👍🏻

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ben Varela says:

    So yeah, real good repair. Easy you say? What do you do if you had a cheap OBDII that will give you basic codes, nothing fancy? What would you do?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marlin Young says:

    Hey SMA can you just purchase the Bosch vci and be able to reprogram modules after buying the subscriptions of course?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin G says:

    Hey. I completely forgot about those cam driven fuel pumps. Now I feel 65.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Brown says:

    Great video!! First time watcher. So with the code p093e would that cause you to have to push the gas pedal down further than normal to get the truck to accelerate?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jesse Foster says:

    My Silverado is in shop now, and I suspect this is my problem. What’s a job like this cost?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert White says:

    I’ve watched a lot of Eric,s videos & I must say he is one heck of a tech ! One of the best at his craft . We need more techs like him ! I’ve gained a lot by watching . He is the wizard at auto repairs . Vechicles now days are so complex anymore unless you have the right tools to the repairs . Tools can get $$$$$ as we all know .he does have a good sense humor too ! He really is a great educator !

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars D G says:

    I learned something. Fer a Yankee, you're alright.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Camaro6 Diago says:

    Why you located so far away bro this sucks

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars M tspace says:

    "Cause you know dang well everybody at home is like- oh I would have opened that up and done whatever it is I do."

    LMAO… Priceless words of wisdom. TY Eric.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars PaqueSepas says:

    When I'm at idle with the same truck as this one, my fuel pressure jumps up to 57psi from the standard 43psi as it's also shown here while you were idling and I get a p0300. I replaced and programmed this black box already and same thing happens. Question is other than this module, what else will command the fuel pressure to be raised at idle is it the ecm? Thanks and do you know a great mechanic such as yourself located here in Los Angeles California? Thanks.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars iiBiggBoyy says:

    Did you happen to figure out why it runs rough on cold start?? Been having this same exact cold start for 3 months on my 09 tahoe.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars M D Adams says:

    The newest computer systems are overengineered simply to overdraw your bank account
    relay 5 dollars and 2 minutes to replace control module 170+55 for software + 1hr or so to install

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gifted Misfit says:

    great video

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Money Grip says:

    He said…. whatever dude.. worth the wait of the whole video.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars willie weber says:

    Eric you do the best job explaining and relating to the problem. I’m Willie a DOT,GSE tech with Fed ex at MSP in Minneapolis. Keep up the great work!!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Freddy Prince says:

    How can I tell if the fuel system control module is bad or if it’s the fuel pump thats bad?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sidney Cook says:

    I'm having the same problem on a 2000 chevy silverado 1500

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Victor Varsanyi says:

    Doncha just miss back in the day, one vacuum line and a mechanical fuel pump? 👾👻

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack Braithwaite says:

    Really like what you are doing. Entertaining and Informative. Wish I was closer, I would be a customer. Keep it up. 👍

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cristi N says:

    So between the diagnosing work replacing the module and flashing the new model how much a job like this cost? I mean you spent quite a bit of time getting to the root of the issue and if you have not encountered the issue before I believe there is no way around the diagnostic work. If you have guest it would be the module and you would have a known good module on hand from another vehicle would you be able to just Swap and see that it's running properly?

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Judge Roy Bean says:

    Are the ones you buy preprogrammed with your VIN number OK ?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Foster says:

    Now they have mechanical pumps again to keep pressures above 1000psi

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GNX157 says:

    You should send that controller to AvE so he can break down for us what those components are on that board, and what they do.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Melvin Jones says:

    There must be some high school student that would love to play around with this black Box and find out what went wrong

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrGordozzzz says:

    I prefer to piss and moan about it.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Leithoff says:

    Typical good job Professor! You have a real knack for keeping it real and your common sense approach really works. Keep it up!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dragsters & Transmissions says:

    Fuel mileage yeah right. What you save in gas $$$ you spend in parts and more. I know it's all about what comes out the tail pipe and the ozone layer.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars j lara says:

    I have a 2016 impala ltz 3.6 engine,i dont have a CEL on but my car does tend to jerk a bit when going uphill or under load.i plugged in my scanner and p069e and p0172 codes appear,do you think its the fuel pump or this fpcm

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Blane says:

    Absolutely insane complexity!!

    good job, E.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Chiodetti says:

    There is no doubt, that Fuel Pump Control Module is a money maker with the location at the rear of the truck! Ya, I remember the cam shaft pushing on the fuel pump actuator rod that pushed the fuel pump arm! How about this. A "Double Acting" mechanical fuel pump. The upper part was connected to the "Vacuum Wiper Motor" and the intake manifold vacuum port. It helped keep the wipers going when you floored the gas pedal in a rain storm. Without the D. A. Fuel Pump, the wipers would stop when the gas pedal was pushed down and/or floored! Thank God for electric wiper motors!
    Oh ya. The lower part of the pump handled the gasoline "transfer" duties, from the tank to the carburetor. System worked great until the cam shaft wore down!
    I saw that module on our 2011 GMC Silverado's with the 6.0 or 6.2 Liter V8's. Strong running truck, LOVES GAS! Showed how much in the low gas mileage! I supposed it was cheaper to put it at the back to control fuel pump power, instead of a logic module up front and a power module in the rear connected by its own CAN or GMLAN! Although, they do use the PCM to control the FPCM logic. To many acronym's ! ! ! Hey! More s**t to complain about! There is a plus to all this! It's after midnight, and I gatta get some sleep! Good night! (Great video!)

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Duncan Mac says:

    Thanks for the video.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phil H says:

    im having an issue with an 07 silverado looking at scan data the ignition 1 voltage at the fpcm reads 10 volts with the truck running. used a h11 and checked the powers/grounds and lights it nice and bright. im going to replace it and see what happens!
