It had to happen to me sooner or later.
Car would not start, fuel pump was getting no power, checked the pump with a live from the back lights, working and car started.
Cleaned up all four relays and connectors, checked fuses, still nothing.
Battery out, plastic tray out, at the front of the battery carrier there is like a well, has the battery neg earth, that was out and holding bolt disappeared, sorted that, battery back in, still nothing.
Battery, tray, carrier all out, dismantled the relays, Ah-Ha someone has put a replacement relay carrier in, very badly but disguised, when I removed all the tape, well you can see what I found, main red wire was barely connected.
Trimmed everything back, (with very little left) bared some new, twisted, soldered and heat-shrink, reassembled.

Good morning everyone. I'm about to replace the original rubbish bbob rant.gif After lots of research, I came up with this: https://m.aliexpress.com/item/4001278036166...f0ea&gclid=
Now before I order it, I'm concerned about the compatibility of the box with the relays our cars have. Has anyone tried something like that before so he can give a help please? unsure.gif

should be ok as you already have the relays to check the fitting

just be careful to wire it correctly

I think the Alfa relays are 5 blade ones. Check the existing relays and their wiring diagrams(usually printed on the relay). Are they single throw double pole etc..?

They are all single pole double throw I think

I sourced a new red one for the fuel-pump position recently off eBay

Hey Dante, you are bang on there: SPDT , I learnt about this stuff when I brought some 5 pin ones from Halfords and found out they all wrongly wired.
