Default 88' 929 not starting...dont know where to start

I have a 88 Mazda 929 with a 3.0 v6 automatic trans in it. Only 123000 miles and runs perfect. Well ran perfect... the other day I was driving when the motor just died. Battery still on, all interior lighting, radio, sub and amp all working. I pulled over and tried to start but the motor only turns over. I've checked battery and fuses and all look fine. After testing the fuel pump I realized it had stopped running. I checked the harness and fuse points for any voltage drops and none were found. But the pump loses all power past the connector to the pump itself. I'm at a loss at the moment and don't know where to start next. Anyone have any ideas? This is my daily car so im trying to repair asap.

also I have since replaced fuel pump but still no power.

What happens if you supply a external power supply & earth to the new fuel pump?

If it runs outside the tank, why won't it run in the tank? Are you still using an external power supply & earth?
