Check for operation of fuel pump have someone listen at the filler neck, turn key on but do not crank, fuel pump should hum for a few seconds then shut off, if not check fuel pump fuse and relay

How do you know it is not getting enough fuel? Are you saying that you put new cable ends on the battery and then it wouldn't start, or that you put new cable ends on at the battery BECAUSE it wouldn't start?
