Sorry you've got that problem.

I would stop spending money for a while. Instead concentrate on trying to establish the cause. It could be as simple as a fuse.

I suspect the forum "experts" will be along soon to advise you as to diagnostic techniques.

K-Jet?
LH2.2?
LH2.4?
Diesel?

Kay - if memory serves it's a 1988 B230E K-Jet. Would also be helpful to know if it's an estate to know if the 3-pole connector in the cubby hole to the left of the spare wheel wel is easily found. Then use a slave battery to feed the in-tank pump directly.

diagnosis, or a cheque book and dice.

Make a choice.

If the choice is diagnosis, what tools do you have?

If the choice is cheque books and dice, just keep replacing stuff until it goes again.

Out of interest, what led your mechanic to diagnose the fuel pump relay?

He checked the pump and no power in it? does it turn with a noise or nothing happens ?
It is all a bit vague as if he doesn't know what he is doing . All fuel injection systems are similar . Generally the engine will run if the tank pump is faulty and there is half a tank or more of fuel , but it will make the main pump noisy as air bubbles are drawn through .

Radio Suppression Relay - RSR - mounted either on the inner wing on the left or by the coolant expansion tank.

However, it's a B230E so it's K-Jet and won't have that.

Did it run with Easystart?
