Where is the fuel pump relay on my 2001 tacoma 4x4 located ?

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to help you.


On the 2001 Tacoma product, there is no 'fuel pump relay".


The fuel pump is powered by the 'EFI Relay' and the EFI fuse. Both are located on the interior fuse panel. The EFI Relay is the center relay on the bottom row.


I hope this helps you out. Thanks for choosing Just Answer today. Have a great day.

so is there any other reason that there would be no fuel if i have already replaced the pump and am sure it is functioning if the fuse is good does it have to be the relay ? thanks Rob

Power flow is as follows:




120 amp ALT fuse


40 amp AM1 fuse


30 Amp AM2 fuse


Ignition switch


7.5 amp IGN fuse

20 amp EFI fuse

(both of these power the relay)


EFI Relay

working in tandem with the

Circuit opening Relay (by itself, adjacent to the interior fuse box)

(2 red/white wires, a blue and a blue/white wire)


Fuel pump

EFI Relay: Black/Orange; Black/Yellow, White/Red
