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.
