Hi. Make sure the relay is good. I see that you installed a new fuel pump - make sure you have a good solid ground for the pump. If you are getting power to the fuel pump it is most likely ground issue. If you want a professional mechanic, consider YourMechanic, as they can send a certified technician to you and help troubleshoot this issue and perform any necessary repairs. Thank you!
