It may be the pump that is at fault. The short cable from the pump will be wired into the supply cable from the battery/fusebox. You could try disconnecting the short cable from the pump and connecting up a test lamp to the supply. If it lights up then the supply is OK and the pump is faulty. If it does not light up then trace the cable back to the switch or fusebox.
