The real problem is that the motor spins but does not turnover. The fuel pump fuse was loose and now the fuel pump is running and I now have fuel pressure. What is the next step, I have not checked the relays yet
Expert:  car tech replied 7 years ago.
if the pump is running and you have pressure it has nothing to do with the relay i would recomend checking for voltage at the fuel injectors
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
not gettin any spark to spark plug

po743 is for the tourqe converter clutch solinoid not the current issue and 1870 is transmission control module again not the current issue can you get a code reader and scan for current codes

GETTING SPARK NOW, IT STARTS AND SHUTS OFF-STARTS AND SHUTS OFF, ECT. WILL NOT STAY RUNNING
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
HAVE GAS PRESSURE, BUT NOT ENOUGH TO KEEP RUNNING, COULD THAT BE THE FUEL FILTER NEEDS TO BE CHANGED
Expert:  car tech replied 7 years ago.
it may be shutting the fuel off with the security system after it starts i would recomend a fuel pressure test to see how much pressure it has when you turn the key on and a new scan for codes this will help us determine the problem
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
THE SECURITY IS ON WHEN I AM TRYING TO START THE CAR, IS THERE A WAY TO DISARM THE SYSTEM?
