Default B18b1 eg hatch wont start after engine install.

Hey guys, first post so forgive me if im not posting in the right thread but im having some issues with my b18 swapped eg hatch.

Long story short car is 100% gutted track car. We removed the b18 to have it built, after it was done we put it in, assembled the rest, and bought an uncut engine harness from a ls/vtec. (We had that harness on previously so we knew it would work.) Now, we have everything hooked back up and we are having issues with starting. Battery has power (brand new battery,) starter is getting power. But key on the fuel pump does not prime (it is hardwired to a switch) but does not activate when switch is flipped.

No dash lights turn on. Ruled out these: thermostat ground, tranny ground.

We thought main relay may be bad, we got a new one for ***** and giggles. Pin 1 has constant power. No other pins do and are unsure why. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: i solved my problem

Fuse #24 wasn't plugged in, causing the main relay to not function properly. After that, the interior harness ground was not grounded properly after painting the interior. Car now primes and ignition turns on.

Havent hit her first start yet since leaking gas but will keep updated
