The fuel pump is not working?

Before you replace the fuel pump: check the fuel cutoff switch located in the passenger side kick panel in the car. Make sure the button is not popped up. Sometimes during some repairs the cutoff switch can be tripped.

Next, check the fuel pump fuse. I think it is #15 under the hood, but check your owner's manual to be certain.

Finally, there is the fuel pump controller. These have been known to go out, but I would replace a fuel pump before I replaced a controller. The controller is located under the rear seat on the passenger side of the vehicle. You can check power going to it, and power going to the pump (key on) with an electronic voltage tester.

BTW, if the fuel sensor is not connected under the hood, I do not think the fuel pump will not turn on. You should re-assemble the car before diagnosing this issue.
