ok, we checked all the fuses and they're good. Any other suggestions? Car cranks and only starts if primed.

Next>> The fuel pump is not powering up>>>Power to the inertia switch comes from the relay should be in the box under the hood. That relay is energized by the PCM when the PCM's programming tells it to. The only thing that is related to the under dash fuse box in this circuit is fuse F30 which is needed to energize the PCM Power Relay which is necessary for the PCM to boot up and energize the fuel pump relay. Power goes straight from the relay to the inertia switch on the Dark Green/Yellow wire. Nothing except the bulkhead connector C202 in between. Check that wire after it leaves the relay.
