The fuel pump relay is usually found beneath the dashboard and near the steering column. Sometimes the relay is located where the steering column is attached. The end of the relay is most often found under the carpet in the driver or passenger-side footwell.
The fuel pump relay is a small component usually found in a plastic case. It has a number of sprockets that connect to the ignition, and the vehicle may take longer to start if this component is not working properly. Other signs of problems with the fuel pump relay are the car dying a few minutes after starting, a loud clicking or humming sound, and the engine not starting at all.
