Unhappy Location of fuel pump relay 99 9-3 Direct Ig

My car died, I couldn't start it. I hope I didn't crank it to much. I replaced the Direct ignition cassette. the old one had a crack in the plastic, and leaked a small amount of oil. I heard the fuel pump come on originally when it didn't start. someone told me that there is a safety mode this car goes into. Anyway when I turn the key without starting, i don't hear the fuel anymore. I checked the voltage across the fuel pump relay fuse with key turned. No voltage either side, fuse good. It say my fuel pump relay is under the instrument panel, close to the steering wheel. I can't find it. Also any suggestions with this crank, but no fuel problem. Please help, thanks

Try some starting fluid in the throttle body. If it starts for a second, you know there's no fuel. If it doesn't start, then you know there's no spark... Ron

It is normal for there to be no voltage at the fuse when the engine is not running and is not being cranked to start.Voltage is supplied when the crankshaft begins to move. To access the relay, you have to remove that 'kneeboard' also called fascia. Relay box is close to fusebox. You can run a small jumper wire from fuse 4 to fuse 32, and if the pump doesn't run you probably have a failed pump.

This may be the repair manual of the future
http://www.saabwiki.info/index.php?t...ng_New_CV_Boot
Its in its infancy now.
Your DIC may still be useable, but not for long - heat destroys transformers(the purpose of the oil.)

Exclamation Hey people

I found the relays, all good. Put 12 v to them checked continuity, good. I jumped the two fuses I think I heard the fuel pump. What sound, and where to listen? I removed the direct ignition cassette that I just put in, to check for spark, I did get shocked. Do these cars go into a safety mode, which shut down
fuel and spark, if cranked too much. I am lost right now, lol

The security system will shut down the starter, the fuel pump and the ignition (or a combination of the three) if it fails.

Have you tried the starting fluid to see if it starts briefly?... Ron

Perhaps removing the rear seat cushion will help you when listening for the fuel pump.
