    Fuel pump relay is next to the battery under the rear seat. The pump is under the car at the rear wheel area, get a friend to crank over the car you should hear the pump buzz as you lay under the car. There is a company that independent auto repair shops buy their information from that the same information inexpensively to do it yourselfers. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info.
