ok, the power comes from the relay. you need to verify 2 powers at the relay with the key on. use a test light or volt meter.

does the relay click when you turn the key on?? it will only activate for 2 seconds.

the pcm is what grounds the relay to turn on the pump.

attached is a wiring diagram for you to view
