There should be a relay control unit attached to the front radiator support. It is near the air bag crash sensor(which has green colored bolts securing it. The relay controller is near the battery side of the vehicle.The connector holds about 20 wires. If you are having an issue with other items driven by this unit, you should check the connectors at the battery. There should be a couple of two wires connectors right very close to the battery positive post, and corrosion gets into the connector and creates a high resistance condition and this can cause lack power to many systems and if not caught first, lots of changing of good parts. Good luck.

THANK YOU! I tested the pump and it works, but I hve no power going to it. The parts store sold me a 5 prong relay and I think it's the wrong one cause I can't find any relays at all under the hood where they would normally be. Is the Relay control unit what controls all of the systems that pertain to it?
I THINK IF WAHT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT IS WHAT I REPLACED TOO - IT IS UNDER THE DASH BOARD AROUND THE AREA OF RADIO. YOU HAVE TO GET ON FLOOR OF CAR AND LOOK UP AND IT SHOLD BE THERE.
