Does the pump receive power? If not, is the relay being energized? If so, you'll have to trace it.

I'm going to take this to mean that you've both hotwired the pump and the relay to verify that the pump works. With the key in the Run position, see if you get power to pin 86 and that pin 86 is properly grounded. IF not, find out why. Trace the wire for Pin 86 back to its source.

The the relay. Pins 85 and 86 energize the coil. 87 and 30 carry the power for the load. You should see continuity between 87 and 30 with the coil energized. IF the coil isn't being energized, either it's not being grounded, or it isn't getting power.

The red and dark green/yellow wires should have power when the key is on and the light blue and green should go to ground. The black/yellow wire should have constant power.

It means that the pump is good. Now you need to check everything you bypassed. Including whatever wiring you bypassed.

Are you sure you are checking it properly? It only powers for 2 seconds when the key is first turned on.

Ok. SO no clicking from the relay with the key on. And power and ground to the proper pins at the proper time. You need a new relay. They're usually about 20 bucks.
