Question about 1997 Isuzu Rodeo
Same thing happened to me on my 1996 isuzu rodeo. My fuel pump worked part of the time. I actually bought a new one, then tested the old one when I removed it. Like you, I hard-wired it to the battery. It turned out to still be good.
It turned out to be a bad ground connection from the fuel pump. You can check it by --- 1) hooking the fuel pump back up where it belongs, 2) splicing a wire from the ground wire coming from the fuel pump and 3) grounding the wire (loosen a bolt head on the undercarriage, stick the stripped wire tip between a bolthead and undercarriage surface, then rachet the bolt head back tight. Then 4) just turn the ingnition key and see if the fuel pump engages and the engine starts.

Have you checked the actual Fuel pump relay? Should be a relay for the fuel pump under the hood, sometimes you can switch the relay with another relay of the same in the relay box and see if that works. Hope this helps
