Yes there is a fuel pump relay in the fuse panel inside the engine compartment, it may have to be replaced or you may have to have your tank dropped and the fuel pump replaced. You should hear the pump first run just as you turn the key on, have someone stand there with the tank cap open, this will help you be able to determine if the pump is working? Good luck!
It could be many things. When you first turn the key to the on position do you hear the fuel pump kick on? If you don't hear the fuel pump it could be the problem. You might also check the fuse to the fuel pump. It could also be a clogged fuel filter but I would guess it is the fuel pump.
The fuel pump power to the relay is powered by the PCM BAT fuse 15amp. The relay is grounded and the PCM powers the relay to turn it on and power the pump. You should have power on the orange wire with the key on. The PCM powers the relay when the key switch is in the start position and after the computer sees oil pressure and RPM.
Seems to me you have a short to ground what you can do is unplug the fuel pump connector then replace the fuse to see if it still blows if it does not then you need to replace the fuel pump and sender if it does blow then you will need to trce the wire back to the fuse panel to see where it is shorted ....
Your car doesn't have a reset type of button for the fuel pump. The pump is powered by a relay fed by a 20 amp [usually] fuse and the relay is controlled by the engine computer. The pump doesn't run with just the the key turned "on" unless the engine is cranking or running.
This sounds like the PCM has taken a turn for the worst. The pcm relay sends power to the fuel relay for 2 seconds to prime the fuel system just before start up. Then the pcm ungrouds the signal for a prove out.
