Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you.
The fuel pump activates as follows:
Key On
The computer sends a ground signal to the Circuit Opening Relay ("COR")
The key on signal sends a voltage signal to the Other side of the COR. This is fused by the 5 amp IGN fuse.
The COR relay closes and power is transferred to the fuel pump. Power that enters the fuel pump side of the COR is fused by the 15 amp EFI fuse and then passes thru the EFI relay, which is powered up by the key on voltage signal
Diagnosis: With the key on, you should have power in 2 of the 4 sockets under the COR (COR removed for this test).
If no power, check the IGN fuse and the EFI fuse.

I will check and get back to you ,but I'm pretty sure that the owner of the fuses are good

Toyota Mechanic: Toyota Service, Toyota Expert replied 3 years ago
You might have a bad EFI or COR relay. Check and ensure that they click when the key is turned to start
