Nope, just a fuel pump relay and fuse.

Were is it

Is the relay is the relay separate from the fuse and where is it

power distribution box in the engine compartment, the diagram will be on the lid inside.

Is It Anyway to tell if it's the fuel pump or the fuse

The fuse will be physically blown, so that will be obvious, and if the fuse is blown chances are high that the pump blew it unless you ran over something and damaged the wiring to the pump. You can always run a hot lead down to,the fuel pump positive contact and see if the pump runs, if it don't then you have a bad pump, if it does then there is something else wrong in the circuit.

Sometimes you can thump on the bottom of the fuel tank while someone cranks it over, if it does start and run don't turn it off until you get where you are going to get it fixed cause it might not run again.

fuel pump is in the gas tank how do you run a hot lead to it

Get you wiring diagram, if you don't have one the local library should have one in reference section that you can copy, trace out the fuel pump circuit and just run a hot lead to that post, you will also need to run a ground lead to the ground post. Easy if you have diagram, hard if you have to follow the fuel pump power wire all the way from the relay to the pump. Or you could just jumper the relay fuel pump supply and see if the pump runs then, that will also be on the wiring diagram for the fuel pump circuit.
