Default Location of Fuel Pump Relay?

Hi everybody, My 900 just quit on the side of the road yesterday while my mom was driving it, so I had it towed home and discovered that no power is reaching the fuel pump fuse, so I figured my next course of action would be to find the relay. I thought it was under the hood in the relay box but none of them say fuel pump relay, so I was wondering if it's under the dash on the drivers side or passenger side? Also is there a fuel inertia shut off switch? and if so where is it located?
Thanks, Chip

Hey, thank you so much, turns out I've got power now at the fuse, I hotwired the fuel pump and it's not running, so I think it's the fuel pump, I am going to cut a hole above the fuel pump and take it out that way rather than dropping the tank.

Thanks, Chip

Here's another good thread in regards to replacement of the fuel pump.

Everything is being done correctly. A shame that Saab/GM forgot the fuel pump access door..
Also make certain the the CPS is still good.
Run the test lead after the CPS, this should effectively test the unit...This may be a two-man job - one to crank the engine, the other to witness the test light at the fuel pump..

I wonder if the dealers have a test rig that is designed for this - eliminating any guesswork??
PMI has an excellent procedure on this...

Well, I got the pump out, it went so-so, cutting of the access panel is an excellent idea, saves so much time. There was a little bit of carnage along the way, The high pressure fuel line (where it plugs into the pump) took the brunt of the damage, I was pulling up on it and the plastic just snapped off, I got the other line off okay though. I guess I'll have to replace that line. It goes from the pump to the filter? Another bit that got damaged a little was the plastic ring that holds the pump in, I eventually got it moving but not before I broke a bunch of the plastic, I think I'll need a new one. Anyways does anybody know where I can get a new high pressure line from besides the dealership?
Thanks, Chip

Just did the same to my car this morning (although I only helped a Saab guy do the job). I noticed he sprayed a lot of WD40 arround everything and payed particular attention to the high pressure hoses and instead of taking the hoses off unplugged them from the pump head. The access hole is a great idea and makes it easier for future jobs. He had a bit of bother getting the pump unit out but did a great job. Unfortunately it wasnt the answer to my problem but hindsight is wonderful.
