You do a fuel pressure test. If it does not show within the specified fuel pressure range, it could be bad. You let is sit there to do a fuel pressure bleed down test to determine if there are leaky fuel injectors also, and make sure the fuel filter is changed out before doing anything. First tho, you want to turn the key to the on position and listen for the fuel pump priming up to make sure there is power to the fuel pump. May have a bad ground or relay.
