There are 2 power supplies that enable the pump to function.
When you first turn on the key it feeds power to the PCM relay which in turn sends power to the numerous solenoids, sensors and fuel injectors, including the fuel pump relay coil.
The fuel pump relay coil is grounded from the control module.
The fuel pump relay should only be grounded by the module and close the contacts feeding power to the fuel pump when the ignition key is on.
The power from the fusible link feeds through the fuel pump relay contacts into the control module and into the inertia switch.
If your power went to 0 when you bypassed the inertia switch then you likely burnt up the fusible link or something in the control module.
