Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue
Fuel pump will not come on, all fuses inside both fuse panels are good, I thought there maybe a fusible link somewhere under the car.

the fuse is marked ECM 1 or ECM 2 and is under the hood, as is the fuel pump relay, also these have fuel pump connector problems, did u carefully inspect the pins for heat damage?.

You didn't post an engine size but you are correct in thinking there is a fusible link that blew when you grounded the orange wire but there is also an inline fuse that protects the oil pressure switch and the fuel pump relay. It is usually located on the firewall.
You can check the fusible links near the starter for continuity. If one of them is burnt up start there by replacing it. If none of them are bad you will need to find the inline fuse. At least the 3.3 liter engine is set up this way.

first thing you need the fuse on that wire second either you have a short between the alt and bat or your alt might be grounded internally auto zone has a tester to check the voltage from your alt. it may have a faulty voltage regulator

How did you verify the pump is good? Did you use a battery to jumper pump wire at the tank?
Use a testlight or voltmeter and check for voltage at pump wire at the tank connector when someone is cranking the car. When cranking the pump should be working, so the power wire to pump on the car side of connector should have 12 volts. If no power, it might be a bad relay. If not the relay, you need a tech or someone familiar with your car to diagnose further. The engine computer signal turns the relay on to power pump. Good luck.
