My new e28 525e is starting well but the pump relay is making a permanent noise  It looks like something rotating inside thé relay

It looks like a failure Have you any idea about it ?

That is not the fuel pump relay, which is located next to the main relay on the side of the fuse box in the engine compartment.


I believe that this is a Revolution or Speed relay and is part of the idle control system used on early motronic systems. (1982-3).


Is it located inside the car above the glove box, near the motronic dme?
