Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The fuel pump is controlled by ground switching from the PCM (computer) through the tan/green wire at the relay, let try taking a ground wire from a good ground and when the pump doe not cycle on and ground the tan/green wire and see if the pump will now run. If it does then that usually means the new PCM is defective. Give this a try and post back with the results and we can work from there.
