Hey guys so I recently bought an 09 mini s, and having trouble understanding the bently publishers mini cooper service manual. I'm not getting power to the fuel pump and can't figure out if the k96 relay is the removable relay in the fuse kick panel or if it's sodered internally into the fuse panel circuit board. The manual shows 2 illustration referring to both as k96 in different section of the book. One shows the fuse box circuit board while opened, also thiers another illustration labeling it as 30g terminal relay? Are they all one in the same or connected directly to each other? I'm just confused on labels even the dme and ecu confuse me but from what it sounds like the dme is part of the ecu, maybe I'm reading it wrong I'm just a diyer but this book is kinda throwing me for a loop also fuse locations don't match up to my fuse kick panel cover chart. From the tests that I have done i narrowed it down to a connection issue before the white/blue fuel pump wire I've tested the supposed k96 relay and it's good ( switch activates and gets continuity) for now I get around buy connecting battery power straight to fuel pump, according to the manuel the pump stays active until engine is shut down so I'm assuming i won't have problems with burning out my fuel pump on the non return fuel sytem. If I jump the 2 terminal from A and B, fuel pump should come on, bit it doesn't, if I test batter voltage I'm getting about 9v which is really low, I'm thinking my fuse panel is shot but I just don't feel confident yet understanding this repair manual and I'm not the kind of guy that likes to throw parts on hoping it solves the problem, any techs that know these cars or that can help me understand the info I've given?
