Car died, but fuel pump is good! Which relay is for pump?!

Asked by Apr 18, 2017 at 12:10 PM about the 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I have a
2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS, 2.4, 4 cylinder
and it recently just shut off. Now before it was an
actual fuel pump that went bad, but this time the
fuel pump was still good!! I was told it could be a
bad relay, and I've checked fuses and they look
good. I need to know which relay is which sonI xan
test and replace if needed, but I have no idea which
relays to look at and I don't have my book its back
where I live and I am out of town.

I was told it could be:

Fuel pump relay (s)
Starter relay
ASD Relay
ECM/Computer problems

My car will crank but it won't start as it's probably
not getting any fuel. I imagine the fuel pump is not
getting any power anymore. I'm not sure which
wires i'd need to replace, but for now I'd like to
figure put which relays are which so that I can see
if I can get this car running again! The only codes i
had showing prior were catalytic converter related
and fuel pressure sensor or something.

I have attached some photos so hopefully you mits
owners can help me out! I'd appreciate your insight
so much.
