Unhappy Fuel Pump?? Electrical??

Hello everyone. Having a problem with my 1998 3.8L Mustang. It won't start. It started about 2 weeks ago. I had problems starting it. Then one day it just wouldn't crank. I thought I had the problem narrowed down to the fuel pump. I bought a new one, plugged it in, and it's not getting any power at all. Located the fuel pump shut off switch, checked the fuses, changed the filter, checked the battery....any ideas?

Re: Fuel Pump?? Electrical??

use a power tester to see if the power wire is hot, sounds like its not. It could be a fuse or something thats messed up not letting power go to the pump, also you checked but see if power gets to the fuel cut off switch but doesnt go past it~ if so then the switch is messed up.

I use a little screwdriver like thing to test my power with, you ground it and touch it to a power source and if it lights up it has power~
