Exclamation Help! Where is the fuel pump reset on my 84 244!?

I changed the fuse for the fuel pump on my 84 volvo 244 GL and now it won't start! I can't find the reset switch or button, and I have to go to work in the morning. Please help?

Did you move the fuse around while trying to start it?

Yes I tried adjusting the fuse to make sure it was in properly.

I know one time she didn't start and I just spun the fuse around and made contact and started right up. Why did you change the fuse? Is it the right amperage?

Does the pump make a whirring noise before you start the car?

There are two fuel pump fuses also, so I imagine you replaced fuse number 7 correct? Anyways, I would just remove the negative battery cable to reset the system, not sure about that reset button you are looking for.

I hear no whirring nouse, I replaced the 5 and 7 fuses with the correct amperage for no reason. The other fuses just looked a little old and so I wanted to replace them with brand new ones, and suddenly the car wont start up. My 1992 740 had a fuel pump reset button in the trunk right behind where I put fuel in at a gas station. I looked in the same spot on this one, and it's not there. I'll try disconnecting the battery now, but in my experience when the fuel pump needs to be reset, nothing but that button will turn it on again.

If you hear no pump noise, or a click from the dash, I would say your fuel pump relay might be the culprit.

I read that the fuel pump relay is under the glove box on the passenger side. I looked under there, see some wires and a box, not sure what exactly is the relay but everything seems to be in order.
