Cougar fuel pump relay

there is a 30A fuse in the power line to the pump. Check for continuity, if the fuse is good check to see if there is 12v on the
relay input (black/yellow wire). If voltage is correct check the Mass air flow sensor operation ( you can find the procedure at the AutoZone web site in the repair manual section for your car). The MAF sensor sends the control voltage to the fuel pump relay, if that is good then the relay might be bad. If the CCRM was bad I believe it would produce a fault code. I hope this helps,

1989 Cougar, XR7, Supercharged-- I have zero fuel pressure. Is it most likely a relay, a fuse, or the fuel pump?

This sounds like the Inertia switch is tripped. This switch is either in the trunk or behind one of the kick panels. This is a resettable switch that cuts power to the fuelpump in a collision. Often a bump of the correct frequency will trip this.

You also have a fuelpump relay in one of the Powerboxes. The sequence is such that power goes to the relay and the wire from the relay goes rearward to the inertia sensor in the trunk(Or kickpanels) which acts like a breaker and then the power goes to the pump.

Fuel pump is new . works when hot wired but not when it is pluged in factory plug . have new relay but can not find it on car

Car has an inertia switch that is supposed to only cut the fuel in a collision. They occasionally get tripped at other times.
Look in the owners manual. They are often in the spare tire storage area. There is a push button on the bottom to reset.

I need to know where the fuel pump is located on a 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7 and what to check in order if I think it's the fuel pump that needs to be replaced

The fuel pump is mounted inside the tank. First thing to check is fuel pressure at the shrader valve. If you don't have good fuel pressure then you'll have determined it is a fuel delivery issue. Check for a good power and ground at the fuel pump, if you don't have a power and ground then you'll have to trace the wiring back and find out why you don't have power. Check the fuel pump relay and fuse. If you do have a good power and ground the pump is likely bad and needs to be replaced.
