I have a 2000 Mitsubishi galant 6cyl im trying to replace a fuel pump relay and im trying to identify which it is because I see more than one of those

We know where the fuse box is for the fuel pump relay just trying to find which one is it because the plugins look alike

While cranking see if you have power to both sides of the fuel pump fuse if you do the relay is working.

One of the terminals to the fuel pump module is burnt?If so probably a bad fuel pump. Do you have power and ground to the fuel pump while cranking the engine?

I would first try what I first said and see if you have power to both sides of the fuel pump fuse while cranking if you do the relay is working. Where did you see the melted terminal at?
