Re: Fuel Pump Relay Location??

The fuel cut-off relay on a 1st gen is plugged into a junction box behind the underdash fuse box. According to the shop manual, pull the fuse box out, then the junction box, and you'll have access to the wires and the relay itself.

I'd highly recommend getting a factory (Helms) manual -- $40 through Service Manuals, Owner Manuals, Wiring Diagrams, Service Bulletins - Helm Incorporated, but it's an invaluable reference.

Thank you very much for the help! If I decide to keep the car, I will invest in the manual.. My dad doesn't fit that well in it. We will know for sure in a few weeks though!

Thanks,
Joe

Apologize for the disturbance but im not intending to got this post bumped. But how about the installation manual for a new fuel pump. It's kindda difficult to search guides out there especially if you are not familiar on them. On the other hand, sometimes the dealerships does not entertain customers as they have their own thing to give attention to..

The factory service manual covers all that. Best money you'll ever spend to work on your car.
