    check for power to the fuel pump first. use a test light to see if a signal comes down the line. if not then you need to go back to the relay which is in the relay box usually next to the asd relay.

    ive located the box,this box has black fuses that say relay,however they have all been jogged around,they are the same..and the local napa shows me a picture of two relays that are together with a bolting bracket.I've looked evrywhere on the van i can think for this, that i've been told is the fuel pump relay and auto shutoff relay..so, am i correct that you're saying the "relay" is this 3/4x1/2 x 1/4 black fuse is the relay??because the pic i have of it is not what is in the fuse box under the hood...i have another fuse box in the glove box as well,all fuses have been tested and are good.just know this is a 1996,has a pcm box and fuel injected.

    fuel pump is under the rear seat and inside the fuel tank.
