I cannot find my fuel pump relay location. Also, does my car have a fuel pump reset switch?
Do you

I still can't find it. I don't understand those diagrams. Is it inside the car or under the hood?

Hello, I'm Danny.

The fuel pump relay is located in the IPDM (intelligent power distribution module) which is located under the hood on the left side near the strut tower. I've attached a picture below. Hope this helps and thanks again for using 2CarPros.

Welcome to 2CarPros.

The relay is located in the under hood power distribution box. I attached a picture which shows the relay location for you. Pic 2 is a general picture of a fuel pump relay.

Here is a link that explains how to check a relay:

Hello,

The relay is located in your vehicle's Intelligent Power Distribution Module (IPDM) which is located on the right front of the engine compartment, right behind the headlight. In the diagrams down below I have included diagrams for the location of the IPDM and a diagram with the fuse and relay locations in the module itself. Here is a link for how to test a relay, if needed:

Please go through these guides and get back to us with what you are able to find out.

Thanks,
Alex

I have looked all over the engine to find the relay location. I located two different fuse boxes under the hood and none of them are where the fuel pump relay is. Even looked under steering wheel found some fuses there but no relay. Please help I have no idea where it could be. And yes I looked through YouTube and Google images already and no help.

Good afternoon,

Can you hear the pump after replacing the relay?

There should be 2 powers to the relay with the key on. One is fused control and one is powered by the ECM relay.

Can you feel the relay energize when you turn on the key?
