Sounds like a relay to the fuel pump. If you don't hear the pump power up when you turn the key on it probably is the fuel pump. It's one of the relays mounted on the firewall above the oedals. Try engaging the starter while tapping on the really patient and try several times. Sometimes you will find one of the relays has been unmounted in the past. This is usually the one that has been the problem.

we tried to do the short out of starting it if would crank but not start! i firgured if it was the fuel pump it would still have some kind of power to it!!
