Hello OK if you can't locate the ECU relay can you find the ECU fuse ? and then measure for 12V on that fuse?

Hi Matt thank you for the help.
Have had time this weekend to look into the fault more closely.
Has i had previous thought with having the pgm-f1 fault on that covers your fuel line i had low/lack of fuel which indicates ? possible a main relay fault.
Had taken the car to a auto fault garage but to no avail did thy solve the problem.
Started back to basic fault finding fuel line.
Remove fuel pump from tank and found suction filter partially blocked. Cleaned this and refitted but to my amazement found in the tank a cloth wipe wrapped up on suction side of pump .
Never been in tank for any reason having had this car from 2 years old.
Rebuilt and tested OK. Have taken photo of the offending wipe.
Thank you for your time.
