This is usually how it happens with Electric Fuel pumps. They either work or they don't. When you turn the ignition to on you should hear the pump engage and pressure up. If you don't most likely your pump is faulty. You mentioned that it did this after a freeze. It is possible that you have a frozen fuel line, Supply or return, will also cause this problem. The best you could do is move the vehicle into a garage and warm it up above freezing to allow the lines to thaw. A lot of time we get moisture build up in a tank without even knowing it. Cold fuel is supplied to the motor through the pump but the return line returns warm fuel and in a cold environment this will or can cause condensation to form in the tank and lines. Also bad fuel from a station will cause this issue. It doesn't take much with all the additives they put in fuel today. They sell fuel additive that will remove this moisture if that is the problem. try warming the vehicle up and thawing the lines. If this proves to be the issue you'll need to drop and drain the tank and lines to clear the problem or try a fuel additive to remove the moisture.

the enginr oil pressure switch runs the fuel pump till the oil pressure is up to the normal operating range. When the pressure is up the relay kicks in and takes over the power to the pump. The oil pressure switch my be at fault if you can no hear the pump running when you turn the key on

This has an in tank fuel pump. Disconnect the negative battery cable before starting. Now lift and support the vehicle on jack stands. Give the car a shove before you climb under it to ensure the car has been set in a stable stance and can not fall on you. Now under the car at the rear just behind the rear seat and in front of the trunk is the fuel tank. You will see a round plate facing the rear of the vehicle ..this is the fuel pump assembly. You must drain the fuel tank down to at least 1/4 full or you will get a fuel bath in your face when removing the pump. To drain the fuel you will need a pump to hook up to the fuel filter connection going to the pump. These cars are almost impossible to siphon the fuel out of the filler neck but you can try and either way you try it takes quite some time. Now there is a plug and some impossible to remove wiring holders on the top of the tank connected to the seam. What i do is with a screwdriver i push the clips up and off of the seam of the tank. Now there is a large black plug that needs to be moved to the other side of the brace overhead. Take a pry bar and slip it up over the brace against the body and pull down this gives you just enough room to pull the plug loose so the pump assembly can hang down far enough for you to replace the pump. Ok remove the two hoses for fuel supply and return to the engine. There are two different sizes. You will see a clip attached to a small cable on each clip just pry these off...they are there to keep dirt out of the retainer spring of the coupling. Now you will have to go to the autozone for some special tools to release these couplings. Give the hoses a couple of twists back and forth to loosen up the connections. Now insert the tool into the coupling to release the spring and pull the line apart...be ready as fuel will spill out for a few seconds. Your almost there...now remove the 6 or 8 bolts that hold the assembly to the tank being careful not to damage the gasket as this is a reuseable gasket do not remove the gasket and ensure it is still pulled to the pump assy when you reinstall. Now you have the pump hanging there the actual pump is the silver cylindrical object at the lower part of the assy. Remove the hose clamps, unplug the electrical connector , unclamp the pump from the bracket and pull the pump out. Check to see if the little plug on the wiring looks overheated and if so replace this plug. Now you will install the new pump on the bracket and tighten the new hose and clamps in place. Always install a new fuel pump strainer on the pump it just pushes on with a smack from the palm of your hand. Now reinstall the assembly in reverse order and always install a new fuel filter when you replace the pump. When all is back in place pour the fuel back in. Now you will need to prime the system. Turn the key on for 2 seconds and off for 2 seconds several times and you will hear the new pump run. Do this at least 5 times this will refill the fuel system. Now you can start the engine and you are a very pleased auto owner who just saved hundreds of dollars because you came to Fixya.com and repaired the car your self. Thank you and work safe, Rich.
