You can just add a relay. It is turned on by the PCM grounding the relay coil. See if the CCRM fuel pump PCM signal goes to ground when the car is running (it should).

The PCM will ground the relay coil that controls the fuel pump circuit in the CCRM. When the car is running the wire coming from the PCM to the CCRM should be grounded.

If you have a GEN 2 then you can do this at the plug where you jumper to read the codes. There is a pin there that you can ground and with the key on the fuel pump should come on assuming the relay in the CCRM is good.

If that is the case then you are unfortunate enough to have two bad CCRMs. I would check just to be sure to see if you have power at the inertia switch in the trunk when you ground out the test pin.

If not then for sure the CCRM is the problem and I would just bypass it and use a cheap lighting relay to power the fuel pump using the wire from the PCM to ground the coil, a hot in run or start fused wire on the other side of the coil, a hot in start or run fused wire to one side of the switched contact on the relay (can be the same wire as the coil just make sure the wire and fuse are big enough) and the other side of the switched contact going to the fuel pump.

Connect a fused wire from a hot in start and run wire to terminals 85 and 30, you can use the violet wire on pin 12. Connect terminal 86 to the PCM fuel pump control wire, a light blue and orange wire on pin 18. Connect terminal 87 to the fuel pump, a pink and black wire on pin 5.

Here is a pinout of your CCRM.
