Default Need Help Locating Fuel Pump Fuse

I need to find the fuse for the fuel pump on a 96 SLE. It is not in the fuse block with the rest of the fuses. The Haynes manual says that it is in the relay block to the right of the instrument panel, but upon looking for it, I could not find it. I need to pull it to run the fuel out of the motor to depressurize the fuel rail..HELP?!?!

My 95 has 2 fuse panels under the dash. One on the drivers side under the kick panel and one on the passenger side under the kick panel. That is where my fuel pump fuse was at, on the passenger side.

Remove the cap on the fuel rail and press the valve inside with a rag wrapped around it.

You just relieved fuel pressure. Put your keys away for the duration of the work.



The fuse panel is at the base of the A-pillar on the passenger side. You must remove the hushpanel to see it (panel above the right front passenger'* feet).

So the "schrader" valve (is that what they call it) that looks like the valve on a bike tire will release the fuel rail pressure and allow me to remove the rail....How much gas can i expect to catch?

You'll get less than a tablespoon of fuel. Just make sure to position your hands so the fuel won't spray in your face.

I usually wrap a rag around the valve to keep from spraying gas all over.

As I stated above.

This keeps fuel from spraying where you don't want it, or pooling on the LIM where it could get hot later.
