the relay box should be labelled on the outside as to what relays control
On my Acura,the Main Relay(fuel relay) was under the dashboard on the
On my 03 Nissan Sentra,it's in the relay box in the engine compartment.
My $20 USD Haynes Sentra manual says to test the fuel pump/relay,remove the
fuel filler cap,and while an assistant turns the ignition key to the ON
position(but NOT further to crank the motor),to listen at the filler
opening for the whirr of the fuel pump.
The whirr should last a few seconds.
Now,IMO,it's possible that other relays in that relay box are identical to
the one for the fuel pump,and could be SWAPPED temporarily if you
experience the problem while out on the road somewhere,to get you home or
better,to a shop or parts store. I'm not sure about this,I haven't tried
it. My manual doesn't have a picture of the relay box.
You may need a tool(screwdriver?) to remove the relay,to unlatch the clips
that hold them in.
Getting it nicked isnt the problem, not getting it nicked is!!!!
Since new the thing has sporadically refused to start. Nissan/Dealers have
refused to acknowledge the problem.
After 3 bullet proof Pulsars the Tiida is a real let down.
