Have you checked to see if the inertia switch has been triggered yet? It's located behind the passenger side front kick panel.
Do you have a multimeter to do some electrical testing?
1. Monitor the Dark Green/Yellow (DG/YL) wire at Powertrain Control Module (PCM) pin 40 when the ignition switch is cycled to the Run position. The circuit should indicate battery voltage for 1-2 seconds when the PCM activates the fuel pump relay for the 1-2 second prime of the fuel pump.2. After 1-2 seconds of reading battery voltage, the DG/YL wire should drop to a reading of close to 0 volts after the PCM releases the fuel pump relay from activation.3. Watch the circuit while cranking and with the engine running. Again the circuit should indicate battery or charging system voltage when the engine is cranking/running.4. If the engine does not start due to the lack of fuel pressure, and the voltage on the DG/YL wire doesn't drop below a reading of 5.0 volts unless the ignition switch is turned off, it suggests that the circuit from the fuel pump relay to the inertia switch is open, the inertia switch has tripped, the Pink/Black (PK/BK) wire is open between the inertia switch and the fuel pump, the fuel pump is defective, or the Black (BK) wire which supplies ground to the fuel pump is open.
You may need to run through a few fuses testing:
If you remove the fuel pump relay does the fuse blow?
If you unplug the MAF (mass airflow sensor) does it blow?
If you remove fuse 17 in the under hood box does it blow?
Here is the diagram for the whole fuel control system:
So it's not a problem with the fuel pump or pump wiring.
What about if you remove the PCM relay?
So that means the problem is between the #8 fuse, and the under hood fuse box.
Pull the #8 fuse and check for resistance to ground. Most like you will find low resistance to ground on one of the terminals.
Ok cool. Glad you got it sorted out. The coil shouldn't be on the fuse #8 circuit, but maybe we're talking about two different fuses or maybe my diagram is wrong.
