Huh?

Profile says 1990 1500. Photo would help.

My wild guess is low fuel thermistor.

That is my first thought also. We need a picture to help identify what you are referring to.

Is this what you are asking about? That is not the original thermister for the low fuel light but is a replacement someone made.

The thermistor has nothing to do with the operation of the pump, it is used only to illuminate the "low fuel" light.

There is also no relay on the top of the pump. If you're talking about the little black box, it is a condenser to prevent the electric fuel pump from inducing noise into the audio system.

What is the problem that you're trying to fix?
