In your fuse box in the engine bay...
The location of the fuel pump relay on 1983 Rabbit GTI is in the fuse box located between the pedals and the steering wheel, you will have to remove a plastic cover to acces the fuse box
you can't as the relay needs to be there to put the right amount of fuel through at the right time,buy another fuel relay.
it is under the driver side dash
I have now found fuel pump relay behind ashtray in centre console just a shame it was not the problem looks like the injectors are not being told to open by the ecu
It's in the fuel tank.
if its the same as a 1990 1.9 its on the rite hand side of the steering collum, remove two plastic bits of trim on the right hand side, , you should see the ecu with a relay bolted to the side , this will be your fuel pump relay, should have 7 wires going to it and one 10mm bolt holding it on :)
The fuel pump should be located on the driver side just in front of the rear tire, next to the fuel tank. underneath the car.
the fuel pump fuse is number 14 in the fuse box in the glove box rated at 15 amps
starter relay location
its located under the car jus in front of the right rear tire. it holds the fuel filter fuel pump and fuel accumulator. i have a 1986 golf that mine is broken and cant find a new housing anywhere.
Both 8 and 16 valve GTIs are fitted with two fuel pumps, a lift-pump which is fitted in the fuel tank and the external fuel pump under the car body. If the lift-pump fails the external pump has an increased workload which can result in its failure. Lift pump failure is usually accompanied by a loss of engine power due to insufficient fuelling.
Up to 88 model's it is in a small plastic box near the battery, on the new style interior (phase 2) models it should be attached to the side of the ecu, above the drivers cubby hole - it's known as a tachmetric relay. Pull a spare from the scrappy as they are
Fuel pressure problem, faulty fuel pump or filter. Check fuel delivery by releasing fuel hose where it enters the engine. Hold the end of the hose in a bottle and have an assistant start the engine. You should get a nice stream of gasoline pouring down the hose. If not, the fuel pressure is too low, check fuel filter and pump.
might be sucking air but im not sure i had a similar problem could also be fuel pressure regulator or faulty fuel pump.
If its a Mk 4 lift up the drivers side rear seat base remove carpet remove three screws on black lid lift off turning anti clockwise take off pipes black feed blue red and cables then lift out pump fuel gauge unit , while you have the innards removed it would be a good time to replace the fuel filter as well If it's a Mk2 then there are 2 fuel pumps, one inside the fuel tank, and one under the car, first relive the fuel system pressure by removing the fuel pump relay while the engine is running and the engine will die on its own, due to lack of fuel pressure. Then unbolt and remove the fuel pump of your choice and reinstall the same way as was removed.
on the bottom of the water pump
