Thanks so much for your assistance!The 1996-97 and 1998-2000 both have a R/B in this location, but the contents of the boxes are a bit different. My 1998 Rav's relay box (at this location) looks the same except for the colors of some of the relays. For your photo:
The green relay is the Fan No. 1 relay.
Just above the green relay is the MG/C relay, for the air conditioning system.
Just below the green relay is the Fan No. 3 relay.
The relay with Siemens 90080 et cetera on it is the Fan No. 2 relay.
The relay just below the Fan No. 2 relay is the IG2 relay.
To get a copy of the wiring diagram that should have 1998-2000 Rav4 info in it, go to www.rav4world.com/threads/vsv-vacuum-switching-valve-replacement-instructions.162689/page-3 , post #42, and download the diagram.
Here's what I know:-- If you describe the symptoms more, maybe this forum can give you more direction. E.g. does the engine crank but not catch? How old is the battery? Any maintenance done recently? Have you checked for spark?
Regardless, after checking the two fuses and two relays above, I too expect going to the fuel pump connector, multimeter or test light in hand, is going to reveal helpful information.
Great idea. I did go out and spray quite a long blast of starter fluid into the PVC port and tried to start. It wouldn't start but had a half a second of a somewhat catch, but failed to do anything after that. I attempted it again with absolutely no starting response or sounds beyond the turning over of the engine.Before ya go nuts diagnosing the fuel delivery system, there’s a very simple test as an alternative. Get some starting fluid and spray some into the intake while cranking the engine. If it starts and runs for a bit, you know it’s a fuel delivery problem. If it doesn’t, it could be no (or weak) spark, or perhaps the timing belt has slipped.
OK, I checked the wires at the connector as requested during many different key positions:Ok, we now have some direction. The fuel pump should prime for around 2 seconds, so,
We need to determine if you have power and ground at the fuel pump. Can you access the fuel pump connector, disconnect it, and check for 12v at pin 4 (blue/black wire) and a good ground on pin 5 (white black wire) - if you have an incandescent test light, this is the easiest way
