Check your fuse and fuel pump relay. Should be under the hood. There is a schematic under the cover of your fuse box. Should tell you which one goes to the fuel pump.

Done did any more suggestion?


The only other thing I would do is put a test light to the main power wire and see if it's getting 12 volts. If so, check the ground. Did you bench test the pump to see if it worked before installing?

Yea I did


Did some research, apparently there's a fuel reset switch: FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH The fuel pump shut-off switch is located in the passenger’s foot well, behind the kick panel. If the engine cranks but does not start after a collision, the fuel pump shut-off switch may have been activated. The ‘‘Fuel Reset’’ indicator light will illuminate in the instrument cluster. The shut-off switch is a device intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been involved in a substantial jolt. 1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position. 2. Check the fuel system for leaks. 3. If no fuel leak is apparent, reset the fuel pump shut-off switch by pushing in the button on the switch. 4. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. Pause for a few seconds and return the key to the OFF position. 5. Make a further check for leaks in the fuel system.
