    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.
