If the power to your fuel pump is only there for a second or less, the fuel pump itself may not be your problem. On my 93, when I first turn on the ignition, I can hear the fuel pump run for several seconds and then it stops if I haven't engaged the starter.
The PCM does not monitor or control fuel pressure directly. It relies on a fixed time for the pump to run long enough to build enough pressure to start the engine.
A few years ago, I had a problem with a significant delay with the fuel pump not operating after I turned the ignition switch on. I had to replace the PCM to correct the problem.
