Question about Cars & Trucks
I guess you know the ignition system is not connected to the fuel pump circuit.
The pump relay gets power from the key switch and the computer grounds the relay to power the pump. You get power for 3 seconds when you first turn the key on. Then you have to have oil pressure to continue powering the pump.
Have you checked the relay to see if it is working ?

before you drop tank again, check fuses & relay.then disconnect fuel line @ filter turn key to on position should hear fuel pump run and get gas stream out of line. if no flow from line new pump faulty be sure & remove negative battery cable first good luck.
