    I checked the pump unplugged with 12 v and it runs fine. Relay 373 in the 13 relay box and its' fuse are fine. Is there a module for the pump somewhere that could be bad? if anyone out there could send me a wiring diagram of the pump and its control would be great.

    Car turns over but won't start after running fine the day before, so I figured the 1st thing I'd check is that the fuel pump is getting power. Except I'm not seeing what I see in every YouTube video and other posts on this forum. There should be an access cover for it behind the passenger side...

Is there a trick to removing the screen under the cap without destroying the screen? If...

    IIRC, the hazard relay also controls the turn signal. And they have a tendency to die (I think I replace on same generation Audi/VW before). Before ordering Hazard relay: can someone quickly confirm?
