exactly it got push out of the fuse box by replacing the relay. Sometimes it made contact because it happened to touch but it was poped out. I think I just push the wire back in the fuse box from under the dash. Just pull the relay and look at the connections with a flashlight or even check it with a meter. You can then temp jump it to see if the pumps starts. It should start if you jumper it with the key out of the car, of course you may flood the engine so do it quickly.
