If it doesn't light you aren't getting power to the pump. I just used standard hose clamps not the BMW crimp clamp. Just don't tighten it to much u risk breaking the plastic on the fuel pump that the fuel line goes on.
Test light sounds like a good troubleshooting tool... Where do you get one?
A man will be the same with a title as he was without one
