Question about 1988 Chevrolet Corvette
Not a problem... lets find out if its a power or ground issue
I need you to go to the fuel pump connector with an old fashion automotive testlight
using the test light I want you to verify power to the pump when someone turns the key to the on position.
if you do not have power, update me personally on your post, my name is Sean, and I'll tell you how to diagnose the power supply concern
if however, you have power then your concern is ground related.... just run a new ground wire and you'll be fine!

Did you check fuel pump FUSE, if OK, Check plug by fuel pump, it may not be plugged in all the way, if OK, have sombody turn key to RUN (Take all safety measures) while you check if juice is going to the pump. Remember that about 85% of the electrical problems is because a faulty - GROUND not +12V.

Ok lets see if I can help. couple of things.
Sometimes a pump may be so quiet you don't hear it. Do you have a gauge to check the actual pressure? You really need one because there are pressure minimums.
Most pumps do make noise and if you cant hear yours then it may not be working. Have you checked the voltage at the pump? Have you checked the voltage at the relay? Have you checked the fuse for the fuel pump?
These are all things we would check in the shop to fix your problem.
One of them will leave you a clue as to where the problem lies.
