On these normal o/p is remove and clean to bright metal the earth straps on the ecu,the gearbox and the one on the near side inner chassis leg,just behind the head lamp,then I remove the fuel and ignition relays,both are pulled to earth via the ecu for oppertion.
Inject 12 v into the connector terminal that runs to the pump and check it now runs.probably will.
Usual faults on these is the wiring from the relay socket down to the ecu,brown with a black tracer if I'm rembering right,very small diameter wire and easy to break.
Does sound like your spark screwed up though.
