I am sorry that that nissanforum.com and nicoclub.com could not hep you. Anyway, your fuel pump relay is not behind the radio, rather it is behind the left side of the dash.

My understanding is that you could hear your fuel pump turning on, right? If you could, your relay is probably be okay.

Do me a favor. When you finish check the relay, check the EGR valve for me. GA16 has a tendency for plugged up EGR valve which will cause not starting. Try that.

Here's a guide on testing relays, it will help

See the diagram below for the location of the fuel pump relay

I tried to start the car today I could not hear the fuel pump working anymore. I will try looking for that relay. Is it somewhere behind the gauge cluster?

I believe it is behind the cluster. I have a 1995, so mine is under the hood. But for 1999, the description was "behind left side of dash". It is probably close to M43 ground #29.

I looked behind the gauge cluster,found nothing. The only relays I found under the dash were these.

I have a 95 Nissan that will not start, I can not here the fuel pump, so I am trying to replace the relay first. Where can I find the relay within the car? The relay box under hood does not show a Fuel Relay, nor do the ones near the fuse box. If you can provide da picture of the location that would be great.

I have checked the Fuel Pump Fuse and that was good. Though out my troubleshooting, The fuel pumped has fired up one time and the car started and ran until I shut it off. But all efforts to start again have failed.

Thanks in advance.

Ok, within those two panels, which relay? Can someone provide a picture or a drawing?

I have found the panels, but which relay am I looking at, basically I have seven to choose from.

I need to know the location of the Fuel Pump Relay for my 1995 Nissan Sentra. I'm not savvy "at all" with this kind of stuff, but I'm a good learner. So the more details the better. Pictures if anyone has them would be awesome too.

I'm planning on going to Shucks to find the part, so I hope they have it.

Any tips or ideas would be very much appreciated.

Thank You!
