In the short time I have spent in the car, I have found that the fuel pump does not work. I have yet to test the leads. I may just grab a test and check back in later.
the wiring is usually the very least of your problems.
If it's still connected, then chances are the pump worked last time the car ran.
BUT several years later from sitting the gas has turned into varnish in the tank and most likely dried up in the pump, therefore freezing it !
I have seen it many times.

Good Luck
