here is the fuel pump relay location for this car

in the box under the hood

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
do I know if the fuel pump is getting power at the plug from the end of the wiring harness what is the correct positive port on the plug I only have a 12 volt test light not an ohmmeter
Expert:  Gary replied 9 months ago.

at the fuel pump when cranking it over the black/yellow should show 12 volts and the solid black should be a good ground

if those both check out then the fuel pump is bad

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
it seems to be getting ground and power I am just going to replace the fuel pump
Expert:  Gary replied 9 months ago.

if that pumps NOT running and you have power and ground to it when cranking it over the pump is bad

I got the car to where it will start but it will only idle for a few seconds and will not take any throttle
Expert:  Jay replied 9 months ago.

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

The fuel pump relay is part of the IPDM. This relay is not serviceable. What is the problem with the car?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.

Do you know if you have any codes stored?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
no no I do not know
Expert:  Jay replied 9 months ago.

Well the first step for your issue to really determine the direction needed is to see if you can rent a scanner to scan the car for codes and see if you have any codes stored. Once we have the codes we can better determine the direction needed to resolve your issue.

I can keep this question open till you can do this. Does that work for you?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I do own a scanner but I can not get to it until tomorrow will let you know thank you
Expert:  Jay replied 9 months ago.

Perfect. I will talk to you tomorrow then.

I will be online around 7 pm EST till late evening.
