Driving down the road it started sputtering then died. Fuel pump relay good. Fuel pump runs when jumpered. Fuses are good. Something is not letting fuel pump to run. Is it the oil pressure switch? Can it be reset?

Turn the key On-Do you hear the fuel pump come On? If so check the fuel pressure if its within specs and then comeback with the readings-we start here-

If the fuel pump relay is good then check the computer controlled of the fuel pump relay circuit, computer might not be grounding the relay if the fuel pump is not being activated-the oil pressure switch powers the pump after the engine starts
