FUEL PUMP RELAY LOCATION

2002 Kia Optima

Electrical problem
2002 Kia Optima 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 75000 miles

I have taken out the fuel pump on the Kia and hooked it to the battery and works just fine but when I plug it back up will not start. I'm trying to find out where the fuel pump relay is on the car, I have heard under the dash, but I don't see it. Can you please tell me exactly where it is located.

Thank You,

Its the ECM control relay that powers the fuel pump behind right side of dash -see below

Okay, I went to napa and told them what I needed but they ordered the fuel pump relay for a 2.7 now on a 2.7 it has its own fuel pump relay with a main relay, but not on the 2.4 it just uses ecm control relay, is there anything else that could be wrong besides the relay if the fuel pump works on the battery and the fuse is not blown. I did notice electrical issues with the car before this happened, and do you think that this can happen again soon? And under the ecm relay on this picture you sent there is a small box under that, is that where the fuel pump relay is on a 2.7?

Thank you
