I am not getting fuel to injector pump

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

It is a diesel and it does not start because there is no fuel

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your VW?

2002 Jetta gls tdi

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

Everything I have looked up online for lift pump says it has four wires this one has two wires so I need to test voltage but what wire is hot and witch one is ground

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

They said it smelt like burnt wires the account pump froze up and they replaced it with a bypass adaptor now it is not getting fuel to injector pump
