Re: 93 ford tempo v-6 replaced fuel pump but will not...
By chance the replacement pump you used was it a "CARTER" brand I had one of those quit the same day installed it! also be sure that the feed wire on pump in tank is connected properly! you can change them by taking out the back seat of car!! the seat has 2 clips good luck

Heres a few things to check that could cut power to the fuel pump. The fuel pump inertia shutoff sw
in the trunk on the left side, there is a reset button on the switch if you push the button down and
you hear/feel a click then the switch was tripped and you just reset it. The switch's job is to cut off
the fuel in case of an accident. Next, the fuel pump fuse located in the battery fuse block under the
hood on the right fender well, fuse #1 20amp fuse. Next, the fuel pump relay, the relay is located in
relay center on the left fender well. Hope this is helpful.
Early 90's Fords also had a fuel cut-off switch usually located in the
trunk, that would switch off in an accident to prevent more fuel from
going to the engine. The problem with the switch is if you hit a bump
hard enough, it will trip the switch. So if you not getting fuel, try
finding the switch and make sure that it's on.
Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

remove gas filler cap.listen at filler while someone turns key to start.you should hear pump 'hum'.if not,check inertia switch [crash switch] behind carpet on left side of trunk.if it 'hums'check fuel filter,it may be clogged.if pump makes no noise,it may require replacement.modern [plastic] fuel pumps will 'self destruct' if ran dry.gas tank must be removed to replace pump.
If I remember correctly, I think those tempo's had a fuel shut-off trip switch in case of collision. Look in rear drivers side trunk, and pull driver side panel off. You should see a switch in there with a plunger on top that you push down to reset. Worth a try.
