      Does anyone know where my secondary air pump relay is on a 2000 1.8t Passat wagon. I looked next to my ecu and there looks like there should be a relay there, but it is empty. Any help would be appreciated.

      You looked in the black box on the driver's side?

      This

      It is located right next to the ECU.

      Yes I looked in there it looks like there should be 2 relays in there, but there is only one with a 30 on the top and the 40amp fuse along with the ECU

      Since my dad has one of these cars I thought it would be interesting to find out... I searched and what I have found so far is that the relay is in the ECU compartment, which is in the engine bay near the driver side, in the black box, and has the number 373 on it.

      SAI issues are a pain. Every part in the damned system has failed on me... hoses, vacuum lines, pump, solenoid, relay, combi valve... I've replaced or fixed them all.

      Im looking for it because my car is throwing a code that the secondary air pump relay is open. Just bought the car and trying to get it to pass DEQ.

      someone probably removed the relay so the pump wouldnt run all the time and blow the fuse.
      the car is on an inclined driveway and up on jack stands in the front only
