Unhappy 89 camero electrical

Just purchased an 89 camero, 2.8 mpfi and the battery drains down quickly. When you shut the car off you can hear an electrical pump noise from the rear of the car. Any ideas what it might be?

Re: 89 camero electrical

The noise never stops? Sounds like a fuel pump. They are inside the gas tank.

Re: 89 camero electrical

Check your fuel pump relay. Could also be an accessory power relay, though I am not sure if Chevy used them in 89. I had a pherd with a bad APR. Did very much as you described. Took me a new battery, and alternator, and a lucky day hearing the fuel pump buzz to find it though. Part was about $13.

Fuel pump relay located beside the driver hood hinge on the firewall.
