You need to troubleshoot the relay and terminals. First try a different relay. Another relay in your car may be same part number relay as you pump relay, so check for that. Swap in a known good relay and try it.
If no help, look at relay. Is it 4 terminal or 5 terminal? If 4 terminal, easier to check. One terminal will be your power source, and hot at all times, so check for that-use your jumper wire (if no testlight or voltmeter), stick end in terminal and just touch metal, looking for spark indicating power. If no terminal has power, maybe only hot with key on, so turn key on and check for power. If no power, the feed from battery to fuse block is lost. If you have one power source, another terminal will be to the pump, the one you turned pump on with. Terminals 3 and 4 will be the signaling source to turn relay on through coil side of relay, and a terminal to ground, also on the coil side of relay. If you have constant power on one terminal, check for the signaling power. When the car is cranking over, the signal terminal should be hot-the signal will be coming from engine computer. So when cranking, relay socket should have two hot terminals. If you don't have two, you're right, relay is not getting correct power to the fuse block. BTW, don't use jumper wire to check for signaling source, use a testlight. Don't want to cause spark from computer wire.
What is EGI? Not familiar with that.
