Customer Question

i have a 2001 Kia Sophia that will not start. but turns over. if i spray ether it tries to start. found out the fuel pump is not turning on . so i jumped it and the fuel pump does work. i jumped it at the relay. but still will not start. there seems to
be no juice going to the coil side of the relay. all fuses are good. relay is good. i swapped it with the horn relay. tested horn and it works so i know that the relay is good. what else could be wrong with it?
