    It is above the fuse box at your left foot sitting in the driver's seat. Look at www.rockauto.com I think they have a picture of the relay in the parts catalog. The Europeans may call it a tachometic relay they fail often and intermittently.

    appreciate your response, but that seems to be the location for the fuel pump relay on turbo or diesel engines ~ need the location for gasoline / fuel injected please and thank you.

    The relay is located under the dash on the right side. Remove the round black clips on the under-dash cover and you'll see the white relay attached to a metal bracket.
