Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. The fuel pump gets power from the intertia switch after going through the fuel pump relay. The fuel pump relay gets powered up by the PCM relay so both relays and circuits will need to be checked. Also, be sure that the check engine light comes on with the key on for a bulb check as the computer controls the fuel pump circuit.
