2001 lexus rx300

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I swappes the horn and fuel pump relay before opening the tank. No avail, so i pulled the pump out of the tank and connected it and it would not buzz. I replaced the pumpwith a new one reconnecred and still no buzz
