check the ECM relay. also, unplug the ECM and check for good power and good ground. its posible you have a broken ground/power wire. i worked on a '94 merc sable, it had a bad power wire going to the ECM.

umm have you tried checking your fuel pump because I had ran into that same problem and my fuel pump had went out.

but, if the ECM dont get power, you wont hear the fuel pump. the ECM controls the pump operation. not having communication with the ECM says alot about where to look.
