If you are saying vehicle will not start but if you jump start it will start but soon as you remove the cables it will shut of ? If so you most likely have a bad alternator or battery. Have both tested.

Thank you.. I have got it to start with the key now and the alternator and battery are good they have been checked.. But now it wont stay running once its started. I have checked the fuses the fuel pump and cant figure out why it wont stay running.

Sounds like you may have a bad ignition switch.

Does the vehicle stop running after letting key go or does it run after letting key go then shuts off after a minute or so of running ?

after I let the key go it instantly shuts off like its running out of gas, but I know there's gas in it and I just put on a new fuel pump.

Yeah that sounds like a bad ignition switch.
