Hello, my name is***** will be helping you out! I have over thirteen year of experience in the automotive world for numerous different makes & models. I enjoy doing what I do, it is my life. Give me a few minutes to review your case, thank you
Yes I have, here is a wiring diagram for your fuel pump, it will be the white that sends voltage. there is also a fuse that gives power to the relay
If there is no power at the White/Blue wire, check fuses 20 and 34.The fuel pump relay is in the fuse panel at the driver's side kick panel. The lower most relay should be the fuel pump relay.At terminal 30 there should be battery voltage all the time from fuse 20. Terminal 87 should be connected to the White/Blue fuel pump wire. Sending power out on terminal 87 should cause the pump to run.Terminals 85 and 86 are the control side of the relay. One of them should have battery voltage from fuse 34 with key on. The other terminal should have a ground signal while cranking.
ok one moment let me see if I can pull up a diagram for the r56
ok here is the r56 wiring diagram pretty similar, give me more time to research more of the relay, and your not getting voltage but smell fuel on spark plugs? injectors must of injected what little fuel it had left but that is interesting.
any dtc codes?
here is the k96 fuel pump relay for you, verify all the circuit and let me know what is missing
yea it does, heres a general idea of it & a procedure for removal, just be cautious.
This vehicle uses a high pressure fuel system that requires readings from the fuel pressure sensor with a scan tool.2. Look at the data for the pressure sensor; there should be about 725 PSI at idle up to a maximum of 1750 PSI at full load.3. Verify proper supply to the high pressure pump. The in-tank fuel pump should run at a constant 72 PSI.
it is also equipped with a 10 year warranty tsb here that part has been updated
I have to step out for about 20 minutes, will be back if you need anything
It was my pleasure answering your question. Now that we have either answered, or somewhat answered the question, I will offer my rating.

So please let me know if there is something I can do for you to earn your 5 star rating. Thank you. Sincerely, Michael.
Thats very good news! as for your question, it depends. Was there no spark as well as no fuel? Was there spark for a short time then no spark? is there spark?
Also helpful tip that I'm sure you already know about these, take good care of that engine, it gets costly for the VANOS to mess up, they share similarities to BMW. Engine will run strong as long as you maintain it & take great care of the fluids.
That is a very good educated guess, a possibility.
Or maybe the relay confused the spark internal short maybe?
Any how, hope it starts, goodnight!! & thank you! much appreciated.
Possibility, maybe that's what caused the relay to go out.
Yea very possible, there has been major floods in our country, so I'm sure those cars will be popping up. I wish I new what the pump amperage specs is suppose to be at, I'm thinking between 5-10 amps
Yea that would be checked first. In the moment the pump wanted to work, I wonder what the amps were showing then, to see if the DME Unit shut it down due to excessive amps Or if its the DME acting up.
Good luck! hope its either the fuse box or the pump.
snap on solus ultra
3500 plus the euro updates which is like 800
Before I answer that question, I think we would have to open a new question to prevent this one from being flagged, is it ok I contact customer service to see if it is ok?
