Can anyone steer me in the direction of where to find these relays? (Again, '98 OBW)

I had a bit of a nose around under the dash and came up empty.

I did a search and didn't come up with many hits- are these relays all but bullet proof?

Pretty please? Someone has got to know where the locations of the fuel pump and main relays are on a '98 OBW.

I checked on my 99 OBW, which is same car as yours. Fuse and relay panel is in the engine bay. Open the hood, it is right behind the battery above the road wheel. Fuses and relays are in a black box, marked "fuses & relays." Unlatch the clip closest to the windshield, and the box top hinges upward.

I have read on this forum that there is, or are relay(s) under the dash, right above the lever that you pull to open the hood. There is an access door next to the lever, but it looks pretty small to be of much help.

Hope this info helps..........Rooster2

I think the relays located in the fuse panel under the hood are for the AC and headlights. The Main relay and fuel pump relay are located above the interior fuse panel if I remember correctly. I'm not real sure though.

Thanks! That looks really high up under the dash. I'll peek again.
