Turn the ignition to the run position but don't try to start it. You should hear the fuel pump run for about 3 seconds then shut off. You may need a helper to turn the ignition switch while you listen outside the truck. Remove the gas cap & put your ear near the filler hole. If the fuel pump is not coming on like I described check your fuses. If the fuses are good, check the fuel pump relay. My guess is you burned out the first fuel pump & the fuse blew in the process. Or if the battery was not disconnected when the fuel pump was changed the fuse may have blown during the repair. One other possibility is you were unlucky and got a defective fuel pump from the parts store. It happens sometimes. HTH. -Jim
sometimes when you run your tank completely dry you can suck trash through the pump and clog the fuel filter.
