Car was working fine, parked it for two days, tried to start it, will crank, but won't start. Fuel pump is not getting voltage, checked with meter, disconnected gas line, no gas comes out when cranked. Found relay to fuel pump and hot wired it and fuel pump worked. So it is not the fuel pump. I replaced the relay and still did not work. I have changed the fuel filter.
Do you

You've done good! The fuel pump relay gets it's instruction to close from the computer. If you have, or have access to, a scan unit you can hook it up a see if the computer is telling the relay to close. Having sat for a couple of days shouldn't be a factor.
