No, the pump can only go in one way and the plugs connect only one way.I belive that it is the fuel pump relay. I have a new one but can not find where the old one is. I have the mannels and it does not show a good picture and no description of where to find it. Any ideas on where it might be?

Thanks for the link. Very informative. BUT, my relay is NOT there! Maybe it is in a diffeerent location for a standard trans.? Any other posible locations? I am the origanial owner. So I know that onone has played with it.

anyways the pump is controlled by the MFI relay behind the carperted panel on the side of the console, I totally forgot that the TTs are the only ones that have a dedicated fuel pump relay like that

Not well! The last sight you gave me I could not get into. Security code is just out of sight to follow. I still think it is the fuel relay and I still have not found it in my car. Still looking. Thanks for checking on me!

Yes, I know where it is and have the drawings and pictures for the MFI. I am still looking for the fuel relay. Can't find it in my car.

Thought I would bring you up to speed. I finally got my car started yesterday, Sunday, with some personal help. We took the fuel pump back out and tested it. It was bad! A bad NEW fuel pump. Well we pu the second new pump in and connecteed everything up and cranked it over. It started after about 8 seconds of cranking. It is now running great. Thanks for all of your help and time!
