The fuel pump will not run unless the engine is cranking and the VAF is open.

There is a jumper on the firewall you can use to test the fuel pump. I helped a gentleman with his capri that had a stuck pump, with voltage applied several firm raps to the panel on the tank freed the pump motor up and it worked fine thereafter.
