Question Location of fuel pump relay

Hi,

What is the location of the fuel pump relay on my 540 1999 e39??

There are very few fuses at the back above the battery. Where can I find the Fuel Pump fuse?

I have 6-cylinder but the V8 is very similar

Above the Trunk Battery, there are some fuses. The Fuel Pump Fuse should be there.

Under Pass Side Cabin Filter for US model (it may be under Left Side for Aussie model), the Fuel Realy is there:

Hmmm, I would bet there's a 99% chance that it is in the same location on the M62TU e38 as well as the m62TU e39.

If this is the case...see the image below (e38 image)...the fuel pump relay is in the trunk (above the battery) and is "light green" in color:


If the location is the same for the e39 (V8)...post back and let us know for certain...I'm sure many in the future would like to be able to do a search for "fuel pump relay location" and find a pic and a affirmative answer.
