Fuel pump relay - car will not provide petrol
« on: 08:33, Mon 11 June 2012 »
My car will not start at the moment.

When I turn on the ignition I'm not hearing any sound from the fuel pump. Like I used to do.
Is the pump next to the petrolfilter the one that makes the sound or the in tank fuel sender?

And I found out, I didn't have any fuel pump relay? I have an injection model so probably they are delivered without a fuel pump relay? If you look at the picture is the fuel pump relay supposed to be where I'm missing a relay?

 :(

Thanks James.

I found the relay behind the carpet behind the fusebox. It looks different than the GTT relay I've seen in various online shops. After a few knocks on it my pump fired up and the car is now running smooth.  :mrgreen:

Glad you found worst case if it goes again you can always bypass by bridging the fuel pump activation wire and 12v ignition live together
