Did you verify that the fuel pump runs? When you turn the key on do you hear a hum from the fuel tank? Did you check the fuel pressure?


Yes, measure the fuel pressure.


Did that no pressure. Found out it was the alarm system that locked me out. you have to push the lock and unlock buttons until u here a chirp. then get in and start the car. Worked after that. thanks

Check your security system


You were right. I pushed the lock and unlock buttons at the same time and it chirped and started right up. thanks
