Most cars with electric fuel pumps have a safety cut out. If there is no oil pressure, or the oil sending unit is faulty or unplugged, the power will not be sent. I would check that out.

Ok thanks were would the safety cut off be?

If the problem is the oil sending unit, then that is the safety mechanism. It will be a round thing sticking into the engine block with wires attached.

Ok I'll check that out

A guy on this site recently had a short on the wiring harness connection located near the tank. It is probably a plug in. This led to a problem similar to yours with the relay being good or replaced, but still no power to the pump. I just recalled this. Best of luck.
