Fuel Pump Control Module : FPCM on a Nissan Skyline GT-R

Nissan Skyline GT-R uses a FPCM to slow the fuel pump down at idle or low speeds

The fuel pump control module (FPCM) slows the fuel pump speed down at idle/low speed. It is one of those OEM parts that sound great on paper, but in real life, when they fail, car no go. It provides a ground to the fuel pump and is controlled by the ECU.  The FPCM is a silver ECU box that is located in the interior of the car, in the drivers side quarter panel, beside the rear seat.  Once you remove the rear seat, and remove the interior panel, you will see the module. 

Modulator - Fuel Pump Control

ECCS Diagram, including fuel pump relay, FPCM, and fuel pump
The fuel pump relay is controlled by the ECU to turn on.  When you key the ignition, the fuel pump should prime for approximately 2 seconds.  Don't confuse the ATTESA pump, and the fuel pump. They both prime at start up, so make sure you actually verify that it is the fuel pump.   The FPCM is also controlled by the ECU, and it slows the fuel pump down at low speeds, to quiet it down. However if it fails, the fuel pump will not run.
