Open the fuel cap and put your ear up to the gas tank hole and have someone else turn the key to run and listen if that fuel pump runs for a few seconds or not. If not check the fuel pump inertia shutoff switch isn't tripped if it has one, then check the fuel pump fuse and if all ok, try a new fuel pump relay.
