motor making any noise at all? if not motor brushes ,or armature, shot. pump or motor could be locked/froze up from sitting also. try to manually turn motor and pump w/wrench or by hand see if they turn. disconnect if need b from the motor coupler. idk just a suggestion. did you check for voltage first off at motor? with key on? or does it have to be on those idk?

Grounding is sometimes a problem. Check the negative wire that bolts to the pump housing.

Well I cant help with your problem, but as another new owner I can certainly give you a warm welcome. The members of the forum are GREAT, as they have helped me several times, with Newbie questions.

Any auto parts store. It is a Ford type solenoid. Take a picture of the wiring setup before you remove it. Take it with you as there are several different Ford solenoids.
