Default 97 ranger won't start please help if u can thanks

hi i'm new to this forum ,i have a 97 ranger reg cab 2.3 5speed 105k miles, its been sitting for 2yrs, replaced solinoid,fuel pump,battery, the fuel pump relay is vibrating,anyways its fluttering making noise so i replaced it and its still doing the noise thru the fuel pump relay, the fuel pump was good i just went ahead and changed it ,it will run on starting fliud,so crank sensor is good,coils,wires,plugs good,getting 35psi on fuel rail test port so fuel to rail is good so that leaves regulator and injectors right?????? i tried to put amy ob2 scanner on it to see what ecu was doing and it wont scan,erase or anything ,its getting power,i even tried my buddies 2000 scanner and it did the same thing like it wasn't hooked up ,i'm thinking computers bad perhaps,don't understand the noise out of the fuel pump relay anyone ever had this problem doubtful but if anyone has the knowledge or has run into this problem before or have any reasonable explainations for this please feel free to tell me please thanks,

You don't say if you checked all fuses. Do that and then you can start scratching your head.
