check your grounds homie. also check to make sure it isn't wired backwards. if everything with the wiring is correct look at your main relay, but it most likely has to do with how you wired it.

Working before you modified wiring. Not working after you modified wiring. Recheck your work. Especially since no one can possibly know what you did.

Sounds like you altered the wiring from stock. Return to stock.

Being vague on purpose will help nothing. If it was working before and is now NOW then you have to check your wiring. No one will be able to help you past this because no one knows how you did your work.

Revert ALL related wiring back to stock and make sure it works BEFORE you try and start modding anything.

It sounds like your saying the car has not run and you have not worked on the car for 2 years. Is that correct ?

Or was it working and running fine the day before you installed hte new fuel pump ?

Please, a simple answer is what people are looking for.
