There is also a couple others on the left side. See the overall pic. Also I attached the relay I bought, it's a light green colour.

There's a lot of variation in these cars because of the different engines fitted - my 3.0d diesel is somewhat different from your 3.0i petrol.

This thread from 2015 indicates a similar problem locating the starter relay: -

Despite searching, I've yet to find any info that shows an e-box layout like yours, with only three relays in that area. Still searching though and in the meantime, hopefully someone that actually has a 3.0i LCI car can chime in!

This doesn't really show anything similar to what I have, I searched and couldn't really find any info on the net.

I don't think the M54 has a starter relay, wiring diagram shows control is direct from the EWS module. V-8 wiring shows a separate relay.

You were to click the link...
Then scroll to the car of your choice.
Or simply use the menu/search.

Thanks, I understand how these websites work... I scrolled through the lists for the e53 but couldn't find any starter relays.

You have a 3.0L (M54) engine, so no starter relay.

Thanks confirming. So I left the battery disconnected over night, just reconnected everything back and the problem is still there...

Any other suggestions?

Does the door have a jam switch? The switch could be bad.
