Default I NEED Fuel Pump Resistor 88951182

hi fellow owners.

i am in need of a Fuel Pump Resistor GM part #88951182. it appears to be discontinued.

thank you for your help,

I don't recall a resistor ever being use in any Buick fuel pump circuit.
1998 regal gs, it is located on the inner front fender wall under the washer tank. it is to regulate the voltage for the fuel pump from start to using the supercharger.

thank you

https://www.gmpartsnow.com/oem-parts...istor-88951182 Do agree with Hanky (I don't know about Buick) but looked up, seems actual. On learning curve with this one......

Must be something to do with fuel pressure regulation; resistor lowers for non supercharged motor?

"OUT OF STOCK - Unavailable until further notice more details on - https://www.carid.com/acdelco/gm-original-equipment-fuel-pump-resistor-mpn-88951182.html"

that is what i see everywhere.

thank you!

It appears to be a ceramic resistor and there were other vehicles that used those type resistors in their ignition system.
If you know the value , you might be able to locate one in any electronics supply house.
If you can post that value , maybe we might be able to assist you in locating one. What do you think?
i will take it out and check. i did find other vehicles using similar resistors.

i tested it by bending the tab back on the fuel pump spd relay, #18. (plenty of youtubes on that) the car runs then dies a few seconds later with corresponding fuel pressure loss. bypassing/bending it like that gets it running again. i think i found one out of the GM vintage parts hub network. i'll know better tomorrow. otherwise i was planning on looking at the actual resistor to check for the color stripes. there are plenty of vids on how to identify resistors.

thank you all for the info,

jim

i bypassed the relay, "bending the tab back on the fuel pump spd relay". that did get it running, since it forced the fuel pump to run on high speed. not good long term, but enough to confirm my direction. FYI, i started with replacing fuel filter, then fuel pump regulator and finally fuel pump, in order of cost. 2 mechanics told me that was the problem... an hour on youtube pointed me in this direction. thank you for your kind offer.

the reason i believe i am on the right track is that i got the car to actual run without dying by "shorting out" the low speed side of the relay, by bending the tab on the back of the relay.

Too, be careful when dealing with fuel pump circuits. Grounded side is in fuel tank of system but 'spose it's possible to shoot 12VDC positive back to tank.

Yes, resistors have the bands but won't spell out BAD-BOYS etc. Also wattage is determined by physical size. Don't look for bands though on such things as ballast resistors (distributor points) as they're a ceramic or porcelain and get quite hot as a normal function.

Rich,thanks for picking up on this.
When our poster didn't reply anymore I felt I couldn't be of much help so I deleted my replies.
Hope you understand. Don't like leading someone and then just dropping them, not good !
