I realize you may have already solved this but, this happened to me also in July...
I had to have it towed... a jump wouldn't work (battery was fine).
It was the...
ECM: Electronic Control Module
ECU: Electronic Control Unit
From repairpal.com: The vehicle's engine control unit (ECU) is a computer that receives information from sensors in the engine. The computer processes this information and makes calculations to control ignition timing, fuel-delivery parameters, engine idle speed, and pollution emitted from the vehicle. The control unit interacts and makes mutual decisions with systems throughout the vehicle. On newer vehicles, the ECU may also control the engine cooling fans, cruise control, and AC Compressor.
They told me they hooked it up to another one to confirm that's what it was. I think they said the fuel pump was working, but the signals weren't getting through (?). I'm guessing they only had to connect one of those diagnostic OBD things to it.
Anyway, they showed it to me, it was a small motherboard about 4x6 inches in a small black holder. He said the part alone cost about $400, but I've not been able to confirm this on the web to see how badly I got ripped off. When your car is sitting dead as a bug in someone's repair shop, and you are helpless as to how to fix it, unless you can afford to have it towed to multiple places, well, you gotta go with what they tell ya. Every place I check on the web for this make/model of ECM says "call for price".
Perhaps I got ripped off for $400 for the part, but I wouldn't know how to put it in regardless.
Anyway, that's why the car was dead as a doornail despite the battery and other things being fine. No information was getting through because the control module was dead.
I'm not saying this is/was your problem, but it may have been.

Yes, it is usually 25 amp (Yellow). There is also, a relay for the pump. Most of the fuses are under the dash...you can check your owners manual to see exactly where the fuse panel is located. The relays are under the hood. If the relay is working properly, you will feel a clicking motion while letting someone else turn the ignition on, but don't attempt to turn it to start the engine since this will cover the noise that you are listening for. If you need to know which relay is for the fuel pump, you can ask at the Auto store. They should be able to help. If the relay isn't clicking, you can tap it lightly with a screwdriver handle to get it to work; however, if the pump isn't running and is original; it is most likely bad and some test needs to be done to confirm that before taking the pump out.
