Hi,
The pump should buzz for a second or so to prime the pump when the ignition is switched on.
If it is not working, I would test the feed to make sure that it is live (bear in mind that it won't be live constantly when the engine is not running). If there is no live at the pump, the relay and the 20A fuse for the pump are both located under the dash.
