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

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.
