Thanks for your quick response. I'll check those bits along with the fuse and

But the scenario of the open circuit has me confused. You see, after I
installed the pump, I took the car out for a spin and everything worked fine.
When I got home, I noticed a leak from the lower fuel line. (I had filled the
car up and parked on an incline.) So I undid the fuel line, replaced a washer
and tightened it all up. I then checked the gas gauge to see how much gas I
lost in the process. So the gauge was working. This morning it's not. So is it
 possible for a circuit to go open without any anyone's help? (Maybe the gods
on Mount Lucas are toying with me?)

If there is an open circuit, where will I find the the white to ground and/or
the 4-way bullet with three whites?

And, finally, how do I repair something like that?

Sorry if my questions seem elementary. I've never had an electrical gremlin
like this before. (Maybe my car liked it better in California.)
