Question about 2001 Volkswagen Cabrio
This is an intermittent problem I've been working on. I changed the relay but that didn't work
Relays usually have power on two terminals. One is power for the high side which powers the component and the other is power for the low side which energizes the coil once it's grounded to latch the relay. The power comes from the fuse. Make sure you test both sides of the fuse or simply replace it. Make sure the terminals aren't pushed back into the fuse box. Identify where the power comes from ignition switch... etc... And Check for open/shorted or failed component.

If you have put direct power to the fuel pump and it still wont work, then get an electrical test unit, test light, and ohmmeter, and check to see if there is a break in any of the wires, and that you have got a good ground connection from the ground feed.
After confirming you have good connections, then it will be obvious that the fuel pump needs replacing.

Most fuel injected cars have an "impact' switch that cuts power to the uel pump in the event of an accendt. It can trigger if the car has had some sort of impact. It is usally in the rear under a panel and it should be mentioned in your owners manual.
The 50 amp fuse will be in the power ditribution panel, which should also be in the owners manual... Lee
