normally in a black box under bonnet near the battery towards the bulkhead. Its a 40amp relay i think. take it out and look at the pins, two will be large and two will be normal size.
Also check the fuse in car fusebox.
Maybe best to have car scanned and clear dtc codes first then rescan afterwards to check.

SOURCE: fuel pump

A quick way to check and ensure that the relay is the fault is too bridge the relay which will activate the pump continuously.

The relay is located in the engine bay and is in the fuse/relay plate box on the upper right (if looking at engine from front). You will then see 3 relays on the left hand side of the box and the fuel pump relay is the front one of those 3.

Remove the relay and you'll then see a 3x3 grid of pin inserts that look like "+". Now number these '+' like on a phone keypad and using a pin or any conducter small enough to fit into the inserts bridge the inserts 4 & 8.


+ + +
4 + + - Fuel pump relay
+ 8 +

This will cause the fuel pump to run on full time, determining the relay as being faulty. Let me know how it goes and il guide through the next step if unsuccessful. If so then you could be looking at possibly wiring faults or more! Best start with the cheapest option I think!

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Car acts like it want to start, but dies right

this is usually the sign of crank postition sensor failure. If you can keep the engine going using the gas pedal then this is probably not your problem. if you can hold down the gas pedal a little and the engine runs, then clean or replace your idle air control valve _ or IAC.

Im driving an opel astra j essentia 1.6 2011 model,recently it started jerking or cutting petrol supply, i bought a new petrol pump the problem still persists please assist.

Jerking or cutting fuel supply? How did you determine that? This is most likely a sensor in the engine. Could be a fuel pump relay but it most likely is a crank shaft sensor.

Where is the fuel pump relay on 2005 astra 1.6 ?

most cars, (we dont have opels here, thank gosh)
but all cars, this is covered in the FSM , buy one.?

most cars it's located in 1 or the 2 fuse boxes.
most cars it even labeled. or is next to the Fuel pump fuse ,

better yet, why not post symptoms? and not guess the relay is bad.
in fact, if the pump has 12vdc across its pins, cranking, the relay is OK.
one test , in 1 minute with any voltmeter ever made and bingo.
a test done and parts , eliminated for suspicion..
this process is called diagnosis.
no guessing need,
we use simple tools to do simple tests and find true causes of all problems.

Where is the fuel pump relay located on a 2001 holden astra 1.8

The fuel pump relay is located under the hood near the battery.
Usually in a black plastic box. There will be some fuses and other relays in as well. It should be marked fuel pump on or under the lid.
Good luck. Replace with same relay.

Can not find witch harness fuel pump fuse is in

fuel pump is protected by a relay. see owner manual for location.

PCM power relay powers up PCM. PCM then powers up fuel pump through fuel pump relay.

Also, check to be sure inertia switch is not tripped. In trunk. look for label or look in owner manual for info.

You will have to have a fuel pressure test done on the vehicle ,but it is either the fuel filter,or the fuel pump witch has gone out,it is not a relay,or fuse,or the pump would not work at all.Replace the fuel filter and see if the engine performs correctly .If the fuel filter helps,but the engine still runs poorly,replace the fuel pump,if the fuel filter went to long,being restricted,it will wear out the fuel pump.
