It sounds like you need to replace the window regulator but to be sure let's use these guides and diagrams below to fix the problem. This video shows the job being done on a similar car but the process is the same. There are diagrams below to show you how on your car.

That is a good ideal I did run a hot and ground from the battery to the motor on the regulator and the window goes up and down with no issues that is kinda why I was thinking it may be the switch just figured I would check the switch is 75 so figure I would ask.

Just to add, if you replaced the pump, you should have flushed the tank of all the old fuel.

At this time, you may have contaminated to new pump with all the dirt and debris from the old fuel.

I would start by dropping the tank and flushing the tank and installing a new pump.

NOTE: The fuel tank is located under the rear seat of the vehicle.

REMOVAL:

1. Relieve the fuel system pressure. See: Fuel Delivery and Air Induction > Procedures > Fuel System Pressure Relief Procedure
2. Drain fuel tank.
3. Support the fuel tank and disconnect the two fuel tank retaining straps. Loosen the exhaust heat shield at the rear (5 screws) and lower exhaust at the rear hanger.
4. Lower the tank enough to disconnect the sending unit wire, hoses, and ground strap if equipped.
5. Remove the tank from the vehicle.
6. Remove the sending unit.

INSTALLATION:

1. Using a new O-ring, replace the fuel sending unit.
2. Raise the fuel tank into position enough to connect the sending unit wire, hoses, and ground strap if equipped.
3. Install the fuel tank retaining straps and tighten the bolts.
4. Install lower exhaust at the hanger, and the exhaust heat shield.
5. Refill the tank with fuel and check for leaks.
