Possibly, but, I'd do some more testing. You see the fuse, check it. Engine cranking, check voltage and ground at fuel pump connector. The gray wire is voltage and black wire is ground, use a test light. If you have good voltage and ground with no pump action, suspect the pump. Engine cranking do you have spark at the plugs?
