Hi ya
If it a gen 1 it is in the engine bay by the near side (left hand side of the car facing forwards) strut tower FL4 it should be a 100amp fuse
Hope this help if it is ok have a look at the underneath of the fuse box might be a bad connection hope this helps

Hi ya
Sorry forgot to say
They are on the underside of the fuse box, by the strut tower. you need to undo the two bolts that hold the fuse box place and turn it over you will see them. You may need to remove the air box to get enough movement
also check F39 in the fuse box in the car passengers foot well
Sorry hope this helps

Hi ya did you check F39 fuse box inside the passengers foot well
i have attached a wiring diagram for you

wire codes
RT = red
GN/WS = green and white
GE = yellow
VI/WS = violet and white
BR = brown

if f39 and FL4 are ok try the following get a multi meter set it to continuity, disconnect all the wires/plugs to the pump go on the X13441 connector pin 1 BR and the battery negative you should have continuity. if you don't your earth is shot and you will need to trace it
earth X173 it meant to be under the fuse box which has FL4 in it, it will be quite a thick cable 10 mm diameter.
if thats ok, check for 12 volts at FL4 both sides of the fuse see if you have voltage you may need to start the car for that be careful there are a lot of amps there you can do a lot of damage if you not careful, if you have voltage there check for 12 volts at X13441 RT that will tell you if the cable it ok. i would also check the resistance of that cable to go from X01123 and X13441 with ignition turned off, lower the reading the better.
check from f39 to pin 1 GN/WS on X6975 for 12 volts
let me know how you get on i will try to get time later to see where X6806 and X9397 go.
also disconnect you battery take the two plugs of you DME and make shore you don't have any water or corrosion on the terminals might be worth popping out the DME and have a look at the condition as well
will try to get back to my book later for you have a go at that first let me know
