fuel pump on 1996 Saturn SL2

I purchased a Saturn that has been setting for a year and a half and I dissconnected the fuel line forward of the tank in front of the left rear tire. I need to pump the old gas from the tank, but when I turned the ignition on nothing happened. I checked the 10 amp fuse and it is fine. Any ideas?

It's likely that the bad gas rotted the fuel lines and electrical in the tank

I was told the pump will not run without a signal from the engine running.
