The pump will only run for a second or two when you turn the key to "on", till it starts.

It's also normal for the fuel cut off light to come on when you fist turn the key.

Check for fuel pressure before you start buying new fuel pumps.

Before replacing the fuel pump you may want to check to see if there is a fuse harness under the rear seat. A few months ago I had an issue where I wasn't getting any fuel pressure, turned out on the recall added fuse safety harness there was some corrosion that developed on the fuse holder which caused excessive resistance which caused the fuse to blow. That harness is NOT listed in the service manuals and from the factory the body harness is directly plugged into the fuel pump harness, but the TSB # 94B55 added a 8-12" harness between the 2 with 2 fuse holders. I wish I would have saved the information from it when I looked it up a few months ago. But at least its worth checking out, as I originally thought it was going to be the fuel pump until I pulled the car apart and found that additional harness that wasn't listed in either the FSM's or the Haynes manual. - Peter

If neither the 30A fuse for the fuel injection circuit(under hood fuse box) nor the one on the inline fuse holder are blown AND you are getting voltage between the black/white wire and ground at the fuel pump then it could be either the fuel pump or the fuel pump relay(under the dash near the PCM according to the FSM). - Peter
