SOURCE: installed new fuel pump 96

Did you test to see if their was voltage available to the old pump? Sounds like you have an open wire from the voltage source to the fuse. I am guessing that the old pump was not the problem.     You may bypass that by running a new wire of the proper size(same as the one there now)from the side of the switch that has 12 volts when you turn on the key to the fuse holder. The other side of the fuse holder to the pump, of course.

I need to know where the fuel pump relay (J17) is for a 2004 mk5 vw golf


You very likely are going to replace the fuel pump, well i recomend you check the vw recalls on failing fuel pumps or related fuel lines and fasteners.
I own a 2004 vw golf and began to leak fuel at the fuel delibery nipples right out of the fuel pump. the problem is that either there tension on the nipple and cause to crak thus leak, or the fuel line is short and pulling toward the rear right tire causing it to crak and leak. the
Volkswagen Golf Recall 05V154000 is the solution
this recall is for a vw golf 1999-2000 but all the fuel pumps around vw 's 1999 up to 2006 have the same problem but you need to put acomplain with the NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.if your car is not under these recall.
