Just because you could make it pump isn't conclusive that it's enough for the fuel injectors. Is pressure up, do injectors open or will this react to being primed?

Does it even have spark? More to check or you are wasting time,

You don't "bypass sensors". You have to follow a wiring diagram to find out where the issue is. If you don't understand electrical circuits, then you need to bring it to a shop for repair.

Connect everything back up like it was. Then turn the ignition on-off-on-off-on. Don't turn the ignition off. The check engine light will flash any trouble codes that are stored. This will also tell us if the ECM is alive. They will be two digit codes.

I think that info is going to be useless unless everything is cleared and then start all over.
