Did new pump come with updated wire connector and if so did you install it.

yes all was put in but the connector on the top of the fuel pump assembly melted on 1 of the 4 prongs inside and now it wont start

Heat comes from hi resistance, hi resist. comes from poor connections!
Sounds like you need a new pump and partial harness with connector.
Look close at terminal that melted, find out which one it is and what it
does and check that circuit.
