How to know if it is my fuel pump relay that is bad on my 2003 Kia Optima

normally this would be noticed by bad performance in the car in the way the engine acts when you push on the gas peddle normally a fuel pump needs two things to work the relay and the fuse if either two stops working you may notice decreased performance of the car's engine or that it refuses to run at all

02 Kia optima, slight front end accident. Now will not turn over, gauges and electrical work. Problem?

I think this car has a special relay (fuel pump emergency shut off) under the hood that shuts off the fuel pump after a crash. Call the dealer and ask for a new one, it is a one time use and must be replaced.

Where is the fuel pump fuse on a 2002 kia optima located

Most Kia cars have fuse boxes that are well labelled. One is located in the engine bay. The other is in the passenger compartment, under the dashboard, either driver's side or passenger side. Check the fuel pump relay if you have confirmed that your fuel pump is not receiving +12V at the connector end. Some models have the relay as part of the main relay. Some have individual relays. These relays are located nearest to the ECU behind center console, screwed to the posts at the sides of the console.

Location of fuel pump reset

Hi going through a wiring schematic shows me that this car is not equipped with an inertia switch. There is simply a fuse, relay, engine control module, and the fuel pump in this wiring. This relay would be located on the right hand side of the dash. Here is an illustration showing the placemtn of the relay and the wiring.
The optima does not have a fuel pump reset switch, the fuel pump is controlled by a relay which is actuated by the engine control module...

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 01 kia optima.its not in the fuse box under the hood or dash any suggestions?

If you have no wiring diagrams or experience
with electrical troubleshooting, your just guessing
and wasting time

Fuses,Relays and all the things you hear about,
just don't up & fail that offten.

You didn't say what the problem was

If it doesn't start or shuts off while driving,
the fuel pump may be worn out.

If you had an owners manual you would know where the
relays are. I don't. I would need the same info you do

Does my 2003 kia optima have a fuel pump cut off button and if so where is it

There is a fuel pump relay and it is;

If you remove the trim panel around the radio, its located behind the ash tray (no need to actually pull the radio). There are two relays, the lower one is your fuel pump. The other is the main relay.

You can try disconnecting the battery for ten minutes and that may resolve the issue as well. I cannot find the fuel shut off switch on that model. There is a fuel pump fuse that is located in the fuse panel and that may be bad, I would recommend that you check that first before you do anything else.
