Most definitely. If he pump cuts out so does the fuel. Try a TEMPORARY fused line direct to the pump and track down the original circuit by cutting it in half step by step. Start at the tank and go half the circuit at a time towards the pump. I suggest a Chilton manual with a wiring diagram as there are often several companion circuits that may not be evident to you.
