Question about Cars & Trucks
Check the inertial cutoff switch. It is normally located in the trunk area, and is designed to cut power to the fuel pump in the event of an accident. There will be a reset button on it, or you can simply bypass it with a jumper to test. VERY COMMON ISSUE for cars in junk yards, especially if they have been in an accident.

Your vehicle's fuel pump relay is located on the relay center, behind the glove box, 2nd column of relays, 2nd one from the top.

The fuel pump is in the fuel tank.Sit in the car.....turn on the ignition switch to run.....listen very closely to the rear of the car...or have someone kneel down by the back wheel.....you should hear a "prime cycle"......the pump running for 2 or 3 seconds if the key was off for 15 seconds before trying this.If you hear silence you most likely need a fuel pump.Before pulling the tank down....check for power on the gray wire at the fuel tank connector just ahead of the rear axle under the car.Check for power with a test light that will last for 2 to 3 seconds as you turn on the key to run.Power means you really most likely need a pump.No power means you may need a fuse or a fuel pump relay.

It could very well be that your fuel pump went bad. I am more inclined to say that the in tank fuel pump would go before before the relay . But you should find the fuel pmp relay under the hood near the main fuse box, if not in it.

If fuel pump relay is bad yes it will still get spark.
Sonds like you do have a fuel pump, or fuel pump relay problem, most likely the pump.
