Check the relay if it clicks its good,if u hear the fuel pump then check for pressusre with a pressure gauge on the fuel line near the engine,and also replace the fuel filter ,they sometimes make the fuel pump go bad

I have already replaced the relay and still the pump won't cut on. Also should the pump run if I just ground it and plug it in without installing it?
