When you say you ran wires to the old pump, do you mean wires from an external power source? How did you verifiy that the fuse and relay were both good? Ive seen customers at my shop bypass the relay for fuel pumps on similar vehicles is why I ask. If your fuse is in fact good, you may have an open wire going to your fuel pump

I ran test wires from a battery charger clamps to each power wire on fuel pump and it started pumping and the fuse isn't blown I seen it and the relay I switched with a different relay that was the same and still didn't start
