I replaced my sons fuel pump and solved his problem( 96 accord) but if i were you i would check the suction line on the pump it could have fallen off. Did you cut a hole in the trunk area when you replaced it, If so it will be real easy to check. also a lot of keys can cause your ignition switch to side load and fail

I thought I had isolated the problem, but it looks to be the wiring in the steering column.
I have always had a habit of leaving my window open 1/4" because of the blistering Texas heat.
My sister had a car that had the rear window shatter due to excess heat trapped in the car.

Of course this results in rain entering the car and getting into the steering column wiring.

Does this mean you have at last found the culprit/ It works now? The problem is gone?
