Check the wiring to the fuel pump and make sure that it is plugged in properly. The fuel pump will stop working if the wiring disconnects from the pump. If the wiring is connected properly, then the fuel pump relay may be getting hot and shutting off causing the pump to stop working. If you need further assistance with your fuel pump not working, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
