Re: car wont start

Does it have an electric fuel pump? You should hear it with the key turned to on for about 30 sec if it does.

Re: car wont start

You can pull the fuel pump relay and bypass it temporarily to make sure the FP runs and that the relay isn't faulty. I will attempt to illustrate the relay socket terminals to short with this ascii art drawing. The arrows point to the connections to short.
