2004 Ford F-150 cranks, but won't start

Totally stock all original SVT Lighting Truck. 22000 miles, garage kept & never driven in the rain. Show room (right off the assembly line) new super clean condition. Vehicle has never been abused. Engine cranks fine but won’t start. 20 amp fuel pump fuse keeps blowing out every time when trying to start the engine. Not getting a sound from the fuel pump when turning the key. Doesn’t seem to be getting fuel to the engine. Fuel reset switch has already been checked.

Either a short in the wiring to fuel pump, or fuel pump is seized up and needs replaced.
