Relay at position "A" on the rear SAM turns the pump ON/OFF.

You could try removing that relay & then placing a jumper wire between terminals
# 30 & 87 to see if the new pump will work.

If I try this and it works, the relay is bad? If it doesn't start working could the rear sam be at fault? I will report back after I try to jump relay A.
