    you need to check the fuses and the control and ground sides of the relay. this is why you pay for a diag to determine the failed area.

    yes, the control side of the relay and the load side. the relay is told to energize by the computer. once the command is made, it closes the relay and allows current to the fuel pump. all this needs to be verified that it is working correctly.
