I need to confirm you did check and verify there is no spark and no fuel pressure, your not just assuming that is the cause?

Was the check engine light on prior to this?

Were there running issues prior?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
confirmed no spark / no fuel. Check engine was on before for a 02 sensor. No running issues prior.

Thanks, ***** ***** the diagram we are going to be using for both issues.

Lets go after no fuel pressure first.

  1. At the removed fuel pump relay are you getting power and ground on the 2 coil side pins with the key on?
  2. Are you getting battery voltage on one of the switch side pins with the key on?
