How many miles? If the fuel pump fuse is good, than the pump may need replacing.

The DME is situated at the rear of the engine bay, looking from the front normally right hand side, black box, take off lid and have a look.

Yes it has got relays in how many on your car I dont know,it all depends on what gadgets you have fitted, apart from that have you pulled a plug yet, if you have was it wet or dry ?
