  • Jimmy, did you check for ignition spark at the plugs? A scan tool can be a big help.

    Are any diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) stored in the car's engine control module (ECM)?

    Check your ChiltonDIY diagnostics. Here's an excerpt: "The ECM enables the fuel pump relay when the ignition switch is turned ON. The ECM will disable the fuel pump relay within 2 seconds unless the ECM detects ignition reference pulses. The ECM continues to enable the fuel pump relay as long as ignition reference pulses are detected. The ECM disables the fuel pump relay within 2 seconds if ignition reference pulses cease to be detected and the ignition remains ON."
