Wife's car quite running, no fuel to engine. Checked relay, and fuse. Remove fuel filter and had wife turn key on, no fuel. New pump installed seven months ago, dropped tank and removed pump, jumped it off battery and pump ran. Does the oil pressure switch control whether the fuel pump runs? Oil light is not on. The engine will run on starter fluid but only as long as you spray fuel in intake. Am I missing something?

No, the oil pressure is not designed to stop the fuel pump. Your first step is to test for power and ground arriving at the pump and then we'll work from there. Remember, it only powers for two seconds when the key is first turned on.

Thanks for your help. Even though the pump was only seven months old it is not working. Tried all suggest procedures nothing worked. Installed new pump and relay even though old one tested good, hit the key and we are good as new. Advance Auto replaced pump with no problem.
