Default Door fix ideas & relay question

It'* one small step for randman...one giant leap for the Bonnie. I figured I'd share today'* experience with the rear doors not opening:
http://www.geocities.com/autotronics...e/SSEDoors.htm

As of now, I still haven't been able to fire up the beast. The auto parts store was out of service manuals so before I start into the major repairs I have a question. Does anyone know which relay in the relay center is for the fuel pump?

Good work on those doors man.

As for the fuel pump relay, Between the Blower motor and the strut tower there are four relays, the fuel pump relay is the second from the strut.

I omitted some important information from my question because I'm stup...uh, I mean...new to the forum. I have a 90 SSE. I didn't see any relays where you mentioned but there is a group just below the glove box.

I finaly found the relay. I bought a Hayes repair manual but it sucks. It didn't specify where the relay is located but showed a picture of the engine compartment where you described. There'* only one relay in that location and it did not have the same color wires and didn't test like a FPR. I found a website that has online service manuals: http://www.alldatadiy.com/. I subscribed for $25 and immediately had access to the vehicle information. Within the information is a "location" tab. This told me that the fuel pump relay is located in the relay center under the glove box.
The good news is thet the relay was bad. I'm now getting voltage to the tank after replacing it. The bad news is that the fuel pump is too.

Do yourself a favour and get a Chiltons.

Its your best bet right below a GM service manual
