Need a location for fuel pump relay (or a fuse) on a 99 auto frontier. (used car and did not have the fuse box cover)
When turning ignition on do not hear the fuel pump (the 5 second priming of fuel pump). the car is used and does not have the fuse panel cover. before digging for fuel pump itself where is the relay or fuse for the fuse pump. Also if anyone can send me picture of Fuse box Cover, it would be greatly appreciated.

2. Relay which covers the fuel pump ( FP) is faulty and needs to be replaced. Locate the correct relay in the fuse and relay box and have some one turn the ignition on and off slowly a few times. You should hear the relay that covers the FP clicking and when you put your finger on the top of that relay you should feel it clicking as power to the pump is turned on and off. If nothing, the relay is dead and needs to be replaced.
3. Faulty wiring to the FP or faulty wiring connections at the fuel pump itself. Check connections at the FP first as if it is a wiring or wiring connection issue that is the most likely place to find a problem.
It's in the Power Distribution Box under the hood. May also be called the Fuse/relay Block. The cover over the box should show the location of the automatic shut down relay. Turning the key to on causes the computer to activate the relay, sending power to the ignition coils and the fuel injectors.
Hello poppylambert: My name is Roger and I will help you. The fuel pump relay is located under the hood. Locate the fuse box on the left fender. Remove the cover and turn it over. You will find a listing and location of all fuses and relays on the inside of the cover. The relay is not under the vehicle. The fuel pump how ever is located inside of the fuel tank. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
normally, the fuel pump relay and fuses are in a box , that is located under the hood on the drivers side of your car, it has a plastic cover, and most of the covers have diagrams on the inside informing the person , just where the relay or fuse is located.
hi Q1 : this could be the ignition coil relay not giving you any spark at the plugs, when you turn the ignition on do you hear a click of sorts? if not locate your fuse box and find the ignition coil relay and give it a tap if it does not click when you turn ignition on, then its faulty and needs replacing also you need to check the live feed to the coil packs and see if you are getting any voltage to them, Q2 fuel pump, numerous things could stop this working, does your vehicle have a factory fitted immobiliser? or one that has been fitted? this could be the fault with the fuel pump + ignition also, has your vehicle got an emergency fuel cut off switch? ( some models have some do not ) this may have tripped if it was accidentally knocked in some way,have a look under the hood and see if you have what looks like a red button that has a red rubber top, press that just to check, i gather you have checked all fuses and wires to the pump? have you got a live feed to the fuel pump? locate the pump, pull off the plug should be 2 wire type, turn ignition on and see if you get a feed...well i hope that will give you some more ideas to look at for now good luck..please vote thanks
Yes, it is usually 25 amp (Yellow). There is also, a relay for the pump. Most of the fuses are under the dash...you can check your owners manual to see exactly where the fuse panel is located. The relays are under the hood. If the relay is working properly, you will feel a clicking motion while letting someone else turn the ignition on, but don't attempt to turn it to start the engine since this will cover the noise that you are listening for. If you need to know which relay is for the fuel pump, you can ask at the Auto store. They should be able to help. If the relay isn't clicking, you can tap it lightly with a screwdriver handle to get it to work; however, if the pump isn't running and is original; it is most likely bad and some test needs to be done to confirm that before taking the pump out.
