Does the fuel pump run for 2 sec while key is turned to on? Does the fuel pump start and run again during cranking?


autozone will scan your computer for free for any faults or advanced if you found this helpful please rate my comment as helpful and best to build my reputation thank you.


That's great, to know what codes are stored in the computer. Since it is a no start, and sounds like cranks but wont start, the asker would have to obtain the tester and take it to the vehicle. Many parts stores will let you return them after careful use. But can you hear the fuel pump?


Knowing what code was stored could be a clue to the answer. it will indicate tests to be run, and inspections to perform. It is not necessarily the part to replace. This vehicle has an ignition system that has evolved over the last few years. When we find out a little more, we can make an educated guess perhaps what to test
