Thats because there is more on the circuit than just the pump.

There is a asd relay that feeds the fuel pump relay and the pcm grounds both relays. It needs to be checked for wiring and possible failures.

The asd relay is next to the fuel pump relay in the fuse box. The ground is internal in the pcm

You need to verify the powers and grounds to see if the proper signals are being sent.

Check the wiring diagram
