Should you hear the fuel pump go on and off like a buzzing sound for a few seconds when you turn your ignition on. I have the back seat out and hear nothing when i turn ignition on and off and i cant get the car started. I just want to make sure before i go buying a new one.

You should be able to at least feel if its working. Have someone crank the engine while you feel the top of fuel pump. You should def. feel a vibration..
Bavauto has the cheapest. Make sure you a gasket too.
