Can you give me the location of the fuel pump relay for a 1988 Ford F150 with a 302 v8 w/ manual transmission? All other posts I've found for this type of vehicle and the repair guide I have, which covers many model years, indicate that it's in the main fuse block under the hood (left fender). Mine has no such fuse block under the hood. Any suggestions?

Right next to the intake airbox. It just looks like a plastic bar. You need to reach under and grab the relay and pull it down and out, then unplug it. Sometimes they're labeled.

Van won't start. Have replaced the solenoid. After replacing it, the fuel pump won't come on. Someone told us to check the inertia switch and fuel pump relay. We can't locate them on our van. Help - where are they?

Thanks

I have an 89 Ford F150 4x4 with a 4.9 straight 6. It has two fuel tanks each with a low pressure fuel pump and one inline high pressure fuel pump. The inline fuel pump is not coming one when I turn the ignition on. I tested the fuel pump and it works fine. I wanted to try replacing the fuel pump relay but I can not find where it is at. Any help would be greatlly appreciated.

Is the fuel pump relay color coded? Where is it located? If the fuel relay clicks is it still good? There is no power to pump, but not from relay to pump.

Under the hood in the power distribution box. Usually it's near the front of the truck near radiator.
