Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the fuel pump isn't running yet is new then it's missing a power or ground feed. There are a number of things that could cause a loss of power to the pump including wiring, simply a blown fuse, and the engine controller itself.

Do you have spark?
Have you checked for communication with the ECM using a scan too?
