Question about Cars & Trucks
Fuel pump relays are usually found in the fuse box under the hood. They are usually square and you can't see through them. To test it have someone place a finger on the relay and turn the key to ACC position and tell them to let you know if it clicks. If it does it is good and it is not the relay.
Usually its not the relay that goes on cars but the sending unit in the tank. You can check that by leaving your door open or have someone listen next to the tank and if you hear a whirring sound it good too.
I am assuming you were having a no start issue if your looking for the relay.
Oh and the relay can be switched with one you don't need if they are the same size like the AC relay.

SOURCE: how to find the fuel
1993 3000gt vr4 - Car won't start. Fuel issue. It is not the fuel Pump nor the Fuel Pump relay swith (replaced both). Where is the Fuel Pump Cut Out Switch?
The car turns over strong, just not getting fuel.

Check for power at the fuel pump, I've seen these have a bad connection for the fuel pump in a connector behind the left rear taillight. If that connection is good and you have power and ground to the pump when you cycle the key or crank the engine, then replace the pump.

How do you know the fuel pump is not getting power?.The fuel pump only comes on for a second or two before cutting back off.The ecm only suppys power to the relay for a few short seconds with key in the on position.Only constant 12 volts is supplied when the engine is running.Is the fuel pump new?How do we know it is good?Also is the engine giving a spark when the engine is turning over?If the engine has no spark,then the pick up coil could be bad,otr the ignition module could be bad.Check the fuel at the injsctors or a fuel line to see if the fuel will pump out when the key is turned on,if it does not,then check to see if the ijectors are pulsing.If the injectors are not pulsing ,and you have spark,then remove the distributor and replace the pick up coil,and the ignition module.The pick up coil,along with the igniyion module give the injectors there pulse.One other thing,If the fuel pump is not for sure coming on,check to see if the relay is clicking on,and then off in a couple of seconds.If this is true,then replace the fuel pump.Any other questons,please ask,I will try to help if I can.I hope this was some help,let me know,thanks.

Testimonial: "The car runs so I know it's getting spark and the car stays running with no problem fuel pump putting correct psi but it wrks when I put power 2 it"
On a 1995 Eclipse, the fuel pump relay is located under the hood, against the firewall right next to the brake fluid and washer tank. There should be 2-4 relays, and the fuel pump is usually the relay closest to the passenger side, or on the left.
