Don't know if you got this fixed yet? Have you tried checking all the fuses for power on both sides and replacing the fuel pump relay?

Let me know what you find.

See if the fuel pump runs if you jumper the fuel pump relays terminals 30 orange and 87 violet/yellow. If not check engine relay 85 terminal for power.
