He said where is the fuel pressure switch

There is no fuel pressure switch. He may mean the fuel pressure regulator. See pic below. Here is a link on testing for fuel pressure. http://www.askatech.com/askatechlive/aatfileshare/references/fasttrac k/ma014.pdf Will have to buy a fuel pressure gauge and attached it to the schrader valve to verify proper fuel pressure. Have you checked the fuses and relays? If getting pressure, you may have a bad neutral safety switch. Try starting in the N position. Also jiggle the shifter and see if it will fire up.
