Question about 1998 Audi A4

Fuel pump relay

My 1998 A4 Quattro has, I suspect, a faulty fuel pump relay. There is no fuel in the delivery line and the fuel pump fuse is okay. It could be a faulty fuel pump but there appears to be no power being delivered to the pump. I therefore suspect the relay is faulty but am not sure which of the relays is the fuel pump relay. Your help would be appreciated.

Many thanks.

Craig Thomson.

Hi,

For a 1998 Audi A4, the Fuel Pump Relay would be J17, the 6th (last from left to right) on relay bank marked "Central Electric Panel". It would have markings "87F/DTI".

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do you test a 1998 audi a4 fuel delivery issue?


Use fuel pressure gauge to test pressure with key on and while running. Low or no pressure can be caused by bad pump, relay, filter, regulator. No pressure = bad fuse, relay, pump, maybe rollover valve if you have one. Your car may also have an ASD system.

A 2002 Audi A4 does not have an Inertia Switch (a "Fuel Kill Switch"), so your likely culprit is the Fuel Pump Relay or the fuse.

Here is a discussion and diagram of the fuel system electrical:

Car wont start suspect petrol pump


Turn your key to "ON" or "RUN" position. You should hear a whine coming from the rear of your car for a couple of seconds then stop.. That is the fuel pump priming your fuel delivery system. After you start your car, you should continue to hear the whine, but not as loud. That is your fuel pump delivering fuel to your engine. If you don't hear a whine then check all connections, fuses, relays related to your fuel delivery system.. If you hear the whine for prime, then check your fuel rail(s) for pressure. If you have pressure, then it is likely a Spark or an Air problem. Do you have any check engine warning lights on? If so, take to autozone (or similar) and they can check the error codes (DTCs - Diagnostic Trouble Codes) and print them out for you to work on.

Clifford immobiliser unlocks doors, does not start car


Find where your fuel pump relay is and check for power there. Most alarm tech's and alarm system dis engages the fuel pump at there relay's.

Simple things to check is the fuse first then go for the relay and if everything there is working properly, it could be your alarm may have gone bad or your fuel pump it self.

Good luck and hope this helps
