These are all components that are on the X
track and run through the load reduction relay.  The fuel pump relay is on
this track as well and was not working when I purchased the car.  There was
a "cheater wire" running from under the driver-side dash to the fuel pump to
make it work.  That wire was plugged into a switched 12V terminal that comes
on with the ignition.  This terminal is in an "empty" relay socket(this
should sound peculiar). ....I am very interested in that "empty" relay
socket that had the cheater
wire hooked into it.  I am wondering if there is supposed to be a relay of
some sort there??

It doesn't sound parculiar to me!  I also have a cheater wire there to flip
on an FP relay that I have under my rear seat, to save the overloaded
circuit.  Is this empty slot on your fuse box right next to brass colored
"Z" plug into the box?  If so it has been empty on every UrQ and 4000 I have
owned.  mAybe for an option I never had or simply an empty slot.  Glad to
have an easily accessible switched on power source for many electrical items
over the years!
