Make sure that all four pins on the fuel pump connector are straight. They have a tendency to bend over. That's the male end on the tank not the female plug.

If you dont hear the fuel pump prime when you turn the key then that's probably your problem. It should sounds like a winding servo for about 3 seconds. Use a flash light to look into the male and make absolutely sure that all four pins are straight and in line. Could be also that one pin broke off inside the female end cable.

I wanted to let everyone know of a great resource for Fuel Pump replacements if you don't already. https://www.highflowfuel.com/ Super affordable, relatively easy plug and play, and excellent customer service. A replacement pump for my 1299 was only $70.

Fuel Pump and Flange Body Replacement Pics

So I did not see this researching the Threads, maybe someone can help me and put this in the right place. I learned how to separate the Fuel Pump Flange today to replace the fuel pump. Again, if this is repeat info I apologize and will delete if necessary. Removal of the Flange itself is covered in the repair manual. I heard the plastic of the flange body is brittle overtime sitting in fuel.

This is not a how to guide, directions, or instructions. Just sharing a few things of note that might be informative. After draining all of the fuel from the pump the flange body and pump were warmed up to help the plastic flex a little without breaking. It should go without saying, this is a component that has been soaking in highly combustible and potentially dangerous fuel.

Secondarily, small and inexpensive Harbor Freight style picks were used to gently gain access underneath the locking clips. Just enough force was used to insert the Phone Repair plastic pics commonly found online. The picks and prys were left in place to prevent the clips from re-locking. Once all the of the clips were shored open, a screwdriver was slipped into the two halves of the Flange body and nudged apart. A little squirt of a plastic safe lubricant around the clips might also help them slip open.

I have little experience with Photobucket and I am attempting to give everyone access to view the pictures in the link below.
