First of all check the fuse in the picture I pointed to in red. Then you will need a 12 volt test light or voltmeter and check the gray wire coming from the fuel pump relay for voltage. If ok there then check the gray wire down at the fuel tank or at the next connector going to the fuel tank and then at the fuel tank. If the gray wire has no voltage at the fuel pump relay with key on then check the orange wire feeding the relay.
