Most likely the groung wire for the fuel pump has rusted. Check the ground first. In the event you need a new fuel pump try this site
59.00 for a new pump.

You can disconnect the fuel line at the fuel filter, and place a hose from the fuel line in to a small container and have some one turn the key on to see if there is fuel coming out of the line .also check the fuel filter .that it is not blocked .if no fuel comes out replace the fuel pump check all fuses at the fuse box .if there is a fuse for it .it would be marked fuel

I just bought a1999,it has been sitting for 6 yrs

You must drain the fuel and refill with fresh fuel before cranking. Fuel goes off if left over time and can clog and destroy the fuel pump.
