Supposedly it's mounted on the fuel pump, which happens to be in the fuel tank. Good luck with that. I'm not positive of it but will PM you some info.

Good question. Easy on the 01-05 cruisers but difficult on the 06+. According to RockAuto where a lot of us get our parts this is a fuel pump relay for a 2006 PT Cruiser.....



Now all you have to do is find it. There are some relays on the firewall of your cruiser on the drivers side right below the windshield. Does one of them look like the picture?

I'm actually having the same issue, as I would love to check and see if it is the relay, as opposed to having to replace the pump itself. Were you able to find the location of the relay, as the "pros" at the local dealerships swore up and down it was in the PDC -which doesn't exist in the 06...

You are correct that you don't have a PDC but you do have an IPM (Integrated Power Module) but unfortunately the fuel pump relay isn't listed separately as they were in the 01-05 cruisers. See other answer under the picture of the IPM.



After a search on the Internet (they never lie ) I found the same question as yours in the "Ask A Chrysler Mechanic" site. Here's his answer:

This vehicle is not equipped with a fuel pump relay. The fuel pump control is done through the TIPM. The TIPM receives an input signal from the PCM. Once the TIPM receives the signal, it will output a 12 volt supply to the fuel pump module turning the pump on.

Uggh. Well, I just went through the fuse box/TIPM, and all the fuses are golden; I just wish they were actually labelled without acronyms, to tell what they really control and do. I miss the days of being able to actually wrench on a car, as opposed to having to be an electrical engineer...

That would defeat the whole purpose of a relay, which is to allow a smaller current (and wire) control a larger current (and wire).
