If the fuse is good, and the fuel pump relay is good, and the pump will not run then the chances are it is bad. If you hear the pump run for a few seconds when you turn on the ignition without starting the engine, it may or may not be good. Listen at the fuel filler door with the cap off while someone else turns on the ignition. If you hear it run but it is not supplying fuel then either the fuel filter is clogged or the pump is running but it is not pumping fuel. A fuel pressure test at the fuel rail will verify this.
