1998 ford contour wont start.?

I changed the fuel pump and you can hear it kick on. The car will only fire if the electrical wires are unplugged from the fuel pump. I checked all fuses and spark plugs do fire. Any suggestions im lost?

Many possible things. You did not mention what engine you have. Timing belt problems are very common on the 4cly. Make sure the plastic idler and tensioner pulleys have not failed as this will destroy a new belt. It is easy to take the top cover off the timing area and look for obvious problems with the belt.
