I'd go through, and first check the fuses that go back to the fuel pump, and make sure it is making contact before you have to go chasing ghosts. If that doesn't work, then you might try checking your fuel pressure: prime it, run the engine for a few minutes, then kill it: watch to see if the pressure drops off pretty quick after the fuel pump is off. I'm betting on a ground at the fuel pump, though: the simple act of the vibrating running engine usually provides a decent connection.
In the underhood power distribution box, the fuel pump relay is the same as the a/c relay swap the two and see if your pump starts to run, if so replace it, if not check power at the pump connector located on top of fuel tank, if it has power and the pump does not run then the pump is bad, remember when testing for power the fuel pump only runs for about 3 seconds when you turn on the key, after that you have to crank the engine, hope this helps, let me know

(Harbor Freight 3 bucks) If there is spark in the plugs then it is probably the fuel pump. Check\replace the relay first. If that not it then your fuel pump is probably bad. If you know how you can check the fuel rail pressure with a gauge to see if the pump is working. You can try to listen for the pump. You have to listen real close. Get inside the vehicle (close the doors)and put your ear to the floor in the cargo area. Have someone turn the key to the second click right before starting it. You should here it pressurize the fuel lines. If you done hear this then your fuel pump is bad. I hope this helps.
If you can, have the computer scanned for active codes. Always check for fuel and spark. with fuel injection it isnt enough to know that the pump is running you need over 35 psi, line pressure. Let us know.
yes the fuel pump is running, you know because when you put the key up and ready to start you can hear it. I know just what you are talking about I have had that same problem. It is about a $4,00 part should not be more then $10.00. So open the hood and then go to the fuse box you will want to change the fuel pump relay that is in the middle of power point and pcm power relay. Also there is another that has to do with the fuel and that is called fuel system this part is located on the right side of the fuse box and the other is on the left.
I hope that you have every thing work out for you please let me know what happens I hope it works out well.
