Was the fuel pump replaced because it failed or because the car wouldn't start?Check all fuses , you possibly have 2 EFI fuses , one of which supplies power to the relay.Check and make sure all air/vacuum hose are hooked up correctly , you have mass air flow meter on that and with a leak , if it's large enough , it won't start.

The fuel pump can fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians highly recommend to replace your fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.
