I just changed my speedometer wire on my transmission, I put my car on ramps to do it. When I took my car off the ramps to test ride and see if it works the fuel pump wouldn't turn on. \R\n

You sure you didn't pinch/damage any wires underneath-If not check if the inertia switch is tripped-start here

I checked all of my wires and none of them were damaged or pinched, but when I tested to see if my inertia switch was getting power it was getting power, by the way it wasnt tripped what could cause the inertia switch to not get power

Could I use a paper clip and jump the inertia switch out to see if thats the problem by touching both the wires with the paper clip just to get that out my way

You can clip it to bypass the inertia switch
