Fuel pump: 1988 Ford Ranger

when I turn key I should hear fuel pump, I don’t. I can jump pump & it will run but it still won’t start. I reset inertia switch, switched pumps (new one) still won’t start. What next???

Could be a bad fuel pump relay. I’m not sure where it’s located on the Ranger, but I know on the Ford Escorts of that era the fuel pump relay was located on the ECU bracket. There were two relays on the bracket a brown/black one that was the EEC relay and a green/black one that was the fuel pump relay.
