If you already pressed in the center of the schrader valve & no fuel came out then the pressure gauge wasn't neccesary. Make sure you're getting power to the pump and check the ground bus.

if you can hear the pump run for 2 seconds when you turn the ignition to run, then don't worry about the relay.
