Make sure there's no battery problems like your connections could be corroded make sure they're clean and make sure they're tight that's where I'd start first beyond that your battery might not be charged enough to start the car could be only at 10 volts where it needs at least 12 to start usually

Everything is good I bypass the security relay and it turns over but I'm not getting no fuel


Yeah if it's a security thing then you got to make sure your ignition lock cylinder is clean dirt free and your key is clean cuz it's reading the chip in the key so make sure that's all clean and lubricated and then beyond that you might want to go online and see how to bypass the security system because it looks as though you might have either ignition system wiring with a view going on with your ignition system but then again it could be your body control module which control security system so you have to do a little research to see which one works for you okay good luck
