There would be a relay, fuse box under the hood. With a charge in the battery you should be able to turn the ignition key to the on position and be able to hear the fuel pump primp up, run, if power is getting to the fuel pump.

Did you test your fuel relay? Are all your pins working in that relay? If you want to check your fuel pump to see if it's working then take a thin wire and put one end into pin 30 and the other end in pin 87 tire the key and you should hear if the fuel is getting up to the engine.
