Which fuse protects the fuel pump on a Renault Safrane?2.0, 2000

Which fuse [or relay, or whatever] protects the fuel pump on a Renault Safrane? I can't find any details in the owners manual for the fuseboard under the dash and there is a second fuseboard under the bonnet !!
PS- its a Renault Safrane, NOT an 181 - the product details would not accept "safrane"

SOURCE: Renault Safrane Misfiring cylinders when hot.

Hi Steve
I'm Dave
First lets start with the missing coolant.
Check your oil dipstick, both cold and hot. If the oil shows any signs of a milkshaky consistency your head gasket is blown. If it is only a slight leak that started recently it may not have reached the milkshake stage yet so look carefully for any signs of foreign substance in the crankcase(oil resorvoir). If all is good there then look for signs of a leak on the lower weep hole of the water pump. You may need a telescopic mirror or to get under the car with a flashlight to see the small hole in between the two lower splines. Next check for leakage out of the coolant resorvoir jug. They sometimes crack or develop a slight leak that is hard to notice because it will accumulate in a spot not neccesarily inspected for coolant leaks. This all assumes that you've checked the length of your upper and lower rad hoses, the bypass hose and the two smaller heater hoses that go to the heater matrix(core) in the dash or firewall. Check for a leak anywhere along the radiator both front and back, near the draincock or along the walls separarting the tranny fluid cooling area from the coolant cooling area. Next you can check for a leak around the thermostat and the rad cap. All of these checks should be done with the engine at operating temperature except initial hose inspection which should be done twice once when hot. If these all prove dead ends you should suspect a heater core problem. Is the area on the floor mats under about where the two heater hoses enter the passenger compartment wet or do the windows fog up needing a/c to defog? If so your heater core is leaking. And finally if none of this helps you can check the frost plugs for leaks. They are hard to find. They are circular cutouts found on the engine case. There may be quite a few.
Post me with your results and we'll move on to your secondary problem. Oh yeah also check for a leak where your coolant temperature sensor enters the engine usually somewhere near the thermostat. Looks like a large screw with wires coming from it.

This fault is due to intermittant fuel pump connector. You will find it in the boot under the round removable inspection cover.
Look at the 2 female metal connectors, one of them will have turned the surrounding plastic brown (due to the high resistance ) Just file down a watchmakers small screwdriver and pinch the connector so as to make a tighter fit with the plug. This worked for me.
Renault do not provide replacement connectors, but will want to replace the entire loom for £1000

Where is the fuel pump fuse and relay located in a 1996 Toyota celica?

7.5 amp ignition fuse, 15 amp EFI fuse-check these- probably under the hood in the fuse/relay block. There is no such fuel pump fuse, the circuit is protected by the above fuses. And the relay is called a Circuit Opening Relay-this is the relay that sends power to the pump when energized.

Check the interior fuse box, it will be tied to the cigar lighter fuse or a power point fuse that you hook a cell charger to.
Since we do not have access to the owner manual for this make I can't provide exact location.

How many fuel pump relay fuses is their on a lincoln ls v6

There are no fuel pump "relay" fuses. There is a fuel pump fuse that protects the secondary (contact) side of the fuel pump relay, which supplies power to the Rear Electronic Module (REM), which in turn supplies power via a pulse-width generator to the fuel pump unit. The power for the primary side of the fuel pump relay is supplied by the REM and is protected by the fuse that protects the REM itself. The REM has 3 separate fused inputs and the manufacturer does not provide information to indicate which of these fuses provide the output power from the REM to the fuel pump relay.

If you are trying to diagnose your fuel pump circuits, it is necessary to use a scan tool that has vehicle-specific capabilities and can access fault codes and live data from both the the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and the REM. Two-way communications and actuator testing is also necessary for certain tests involved in verifying the fuel pump circuits.

The easiest way to verify whether the entire system is working or not would be to check for the proper voltage (over 12.5 volts) at the Fuel Pump Module (FPM) electrical connector. If the correct voltage is present at the FPM connectors, then the fuel pump relay, the REM, and all related fuses are good. However, to do this, once again, it requires a scan tool as described above so that the fuel pump can be commanded ON through the computer system functional tests.

Shorted out one of the fuel injector wires,and now my fuel pump isn't working,checked the fuses,none are blown,any ideas,other fuses or fuse link?thanks,

The fuel injectors receive their power from the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) Power Relay which is located in the Engine Compartment Fuse Box. This circuit is protected by Fuse "I" (20 Amp), also located in the Engine Compartment Fuse Box. If you blew a fuse, this would be the one.
The fuel pump, however, is a totally different circuit. (although it is controlled by the PCM which will not work if the fuse above is blown) The fuel pump gets its power from the fuel pump relay which is protected by Fuse "O" (20 Amp) in the Engine Compartment Relay Box.
