The fuel pump relay is located in the rear fuse block

Left rear of the passenger compartment, under the rear seat

There is no reset to the fuel pump,if the pump has quit or pressure is low ,the fuel pump is dead.This is a common problem.The fuel pump is in the fuel tank.

Okay, maybe that's not the problem. The fuel pump continues to run after I turn off the ignition, and it smells like it's getting hot. This is a 2002 Escalade. My neighbor up the street said that the relay should be in the fuse box compartment located against the firewall under the hood on the driver's side. It's getting hot, so I'm hesitant to drive it anywhere. Right now, the battery is disconnected, but if I hook it up, the fuel starts whinig again.


Any ideas? Thanks!
