Angry Fuel problems suspected

Hey, I am having some problems with the car. Was driving and stopped at a light ans when I went to go, the car died. I am pretty sure it is a fuel problem. When I turn on the key, I can't hear the pump. THere was a new pump installed a few monthes ago. Does anyone have any ideas if it could be something else, or is it probably just a faulty pump?
Thanks for the help.

Oh yeah, I also checked the fuse for the fuel pump and it is fine.

The procedure is in the haynes manual. I can look it up if you dont have the manual.

Above the fuse panel there are two rows of relays. If you remove the fuel pump relay and take a paperclip stick it into the two connectors that the hanyes manual says and if the car starts replace the relay. Its a common problem.

Yup, I found that, and thankfully, that was the problem.
Connected the 2 and the pump fired right up.
Thanks for the help
