Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You mentioned the fuel pump not getting power but then mentioned that you've just listened for the pump, so I'm unsure if power was actually checked. If it's truly missing power then it could be a wiring issue, a relay, or the engine controller itself may not be awake for whatever reason. It's going to require some electrical testing to determine exactly what is going on.

Have you used an incandescent test light to check for power and ground at the pump while a helper cranked the starter and found there was no power?
