Fuel pump relays controlled by which gizmo?

Today is not a good day.

Apart from my coke problems (in a separate thread), sorry - my car's coke problems, my engine won't start.
I just went out to shift the car around so I could work on it and it fired up for about a second and then died. It wouldn't restart.

Plenty of spark but no fuel. I bridged both pump relays and it started up straight away (although it did run a bit roughly).
Put relays back and it started again but died shortly after - I guess when fuel pressure ran out. Thereafter, no start.

Obviously, the pumps aren't getting the message to go.
Question is ... where is the gizmo that controls the pump relays?
1988 Carrera - 3.6 engine (with ITBs, COPs, MS3X) and a whole set of turbo body panels waiting in the attic.
Day job ...
