when you turn the key on without starting the car you should hear a buzzing sound for about 2 to 3 seconds. that would be your fuel pump pumping fuel up to the injectors. if you dont hear that sound then you have a fuel pump issue

Yes it buzzes then nothing just quite tried putting the key in the on position for 10 min still nothing before i put the new battery in it was dead jumped it and it started then got the new battery put it in & nothing mechanic cant figure it out
