Sounds like a wiring issue related to something in the door where your getting a short. Check your battery. Is it 12.4V or higher?

Fuel Pump reset in the trunk sounds like the problem to me. This is located usually under a flap in the trunk on the left side. If that doesn't help I don't know what else to suggest.

I have a 94 XR2 capri With a 1.6 L when it wouldn't start I found out it was sucking air in between the air filter box and the carburetor there's a switch underneath the air filter box that has to have the correct vacuum to flip that switch open to make it start and run I used tape on the fiber portion of the intake line from the air filter to the intake and it started right up and ran good (ha ha )

They are a nightmare aren't they don't give up they are worth keeping, I get 35mpg on Highway at If I stay under 80
