Locating what should be the fuel pump relay:
First of all, you should be aware by now that your car has
several fuse panels, in various locations throughout the car.
The one where the fuel pump relay _always_ seems to be
is under the hood, behind the firewall, usually on the left-
hand side. It is black in color, and it has a plastic cover on it
(also black) which you must remove. Inside, you'll find relays
Inside the panel, there are two rows of relay positions. The
first row numbers the relays 1 - 6. The second row numbers
them from 7 to 11. The relay in position 10 is most likely
your fuel pump relay, regardless of whether it has the place
on top of it in which to insert the fuse which triggers the tests,
or not. My fuel pump relay has the fuse slot, but the slot is
not functional. I would not doubt that in later model years,
as a cost-savings measure, Audi eliminated the "fused" relay.
After all, a mechanic will most likely have one available to
use while _they_ test the car!
Once you've found the relay, remove it, and examine it for
an Audi and/or Bosch part number. Then, post the part
number here, and perhaps we can compare it to what
we have to see if it is, indeed, a fuel pump relay.

Well, you might find that people here on the list can tell you things
about your car that neither Audi nor the dealer feel inclined to
share, and the starting point for telling this information is for us
to know the VIN (or at least, all of the VIN except perhaps the last
four digits, in case you have some concerns about publicly posting
It's found on the dashboard, and can be seen outside the car when
looking in through the windshield at the dash.

That is the ABS computer. You'll find the ECU on the passenger side
of the car, behind a carpeted panel on the right side of the
floorboard, at what would be the passemger's feet.

You are correct!
