always do the easy stuff first..
Two connections to check - as mentioned first check the connector going into the tank - known problem area - remove and reseat. A problem here will prevent the fuel pump from working.
In the earlier model Ks this connector was - I think - a bad design. I don't know the particulars of your model year. In the early years there were pins on the tank side mating to female connectors in the harness side - eventually the female connectors loosten up and fail to grip the pins, causing a connection problem and no power to the pump, even though the plug appears to be firmly in place.
Second - check and reseat the computer connection. Might be a good time to clean these contacts.
If the connector under the tank is the problem the problem will return if not fixed.
