Hello, the air pump relay is the green one in the middle of the fuse box in front of the engine on the passenger side and the fuse is fuse 108, remove the fuse and relay and check them physically as the fuse is known to burn at the tip and also burn the fuse box internally. let me know what you find and we can continue.
