Why waste your time answering. I thought a good answer would be it's the green one located in the fuse box or here is the link to a diagram.

If you don't have the knowledge don't answer jerk

Well if you knew the answer why would you ask in the first place? Did you search like you were supposed to?

And I didn't know the relay was green. All what I knew is it's in the fuse box...

Good to see you are contributing to the value of this site as well.

You asked a question, you got a semi-specific answer. By internet standards, that is damn good. So please, if you can play nice, stay at B'fest.com by all means. If not, then keep it to yourself.

Talk about biting the hand that feeds ya, eh Randy?

Here is the answer I got from another BMW forum ( one where people take answering questions seriously ) They don't spend time degrading good forums like bimmerfest the way KAPTIN KP does.

FOR ALL YOU INTERESTED FOLKS -- SEE THE GREAT POST AND INFO BELOW:

Pump is on the passenger side, both sides are pickups / sending units. First step would be to check the fuel pump fuse (located under the hood, drivers side). The inside of the fuse box cover will give you the position.

Next step would be to check the fuel pump relay. The relay is right next to the fuse box (towards the inside of the car). It is covered with a separate cover - there are three relays. From the front of the car going back they are the fuel pump relay (orange), DME relay (White), O2 Sensor relay (orange).

If you're not sure of how to jump the relay (eliminate that from the equation) then you should really think about if you want to do this (use your best judgetment): run a wire between pins 30 and 87. If your fuel pump starts running and your car starts up then you have a bad relay. Make sure you run a fuse in your jumper wire as you can cause a direct short if you jump the wrong pins.

Next step would be to test the power to the pump (not sure which wires). If you've got power to the pump and it's not running, you may have a pump problem.

As the previous poster said, a Bently is definatly worth the investment if you're going to work on the car yourself. This procedure is documented in the book.
