When you replaced the fuel pump did you unhook the battery at that time?

No. Was giving only one when I bought the car 4 years ago

Sometimes they forget the keys when the battery is unhooked.

Can't be bypassed, has to be repaired and that may require the dealer.

I would say your best bet would be the dealer since you dont have a back up key to try. And they would have all the equipment to diagnose and repair it.
