update

ok to update my own post - when I did a search for fuel pump relay 1985 GSL-SE this came up in the search results from Auto Zone - then proceeded to tell me it didn't fit my car. Gotta love it.

It looks exactly like what is on there now so I ordered it anyway - fingers crossed

I will let you all know. I can't believe I have a harder time finding parts for my 1985 FB than I do for my 1971 240Z !!!!

Part # matches, looks correct... Hell, these cars have lawn mower engines in them -- how hard could it be?

What were the symptoms of the car when relay failed?

I'm guessing the fuel pump wasn't getting power, but wanted to check as I'm tracking down shorts in my Engine Fuse in the block. Thanks, and let us know if that relay works,

I believe that style fuel pump relay was also used on the FC's if I'm not mistaken, if you're having a hard time finding one that will work. It would take some part number crossover checks to ensure that an FC part would work properly though.

the FC part is similar, the N236-18-821 fits 323/929/mpv though
