Under the hood next to the firewall is your multi-function box. It controls fuel and other things in your truck. You can pull your fuel supply line loose at the back of the injection rail and have someone turn the key on to see if you are getting fuel. If you are not, you will need test for power to the multi-function box and fuel pump. If you don't have a basic understanding of how to test for power to these components, my advice will not be much of an immediate help.

Did you check the ground wire on the frame. There is a ground wire that is bolted to the top frame rail near the left rear wheel opening. I've seen that wire break or get corroded where it bolts to the frame. I'm not sure of the location on a 1998 but that's where it is on the earlier models as well as the full size trucks. That wire also grounds the gas gauge, does the gas gauge read goofy? Also keep in mind the pump only runs for 3-5 seconds then it shut off, until the engine starts, or the starter is engaged. Good luck!

SOURCE: 1998 Neon. Fuel pump problems...
Has the car been running one day and won't start the next and thats why you replaced those parts? This may be the distributor ignition modual later then when it is going out can act like its got demon in it. This modualator will shut power down to your fuel pump.
Now you can try something first though. Run a wire from a hot wire to the fuel pump and see if it will start and run while that wire is hooked up.
If it does then you can find a wire that only becomes hot when the key is turned on so the pump won't run all the time and only when the car is running. This is called gerry riggen in the service and not the proper way to do it. You may get an engine line on because of it too which will put the computer into trouble mode and cut your power down. But maybe not. Try it and see what takes place. If it still won't start then we need to look into testing the ignition modualator. Keep me informed and I will be glad to help you in the matter as well. Raz
