How many miles are on the vehicle? Did you check for fuel pressure at the actual fuel injector rail? You do know that the fuel pump will not run with the key simply in the on position unless the engine is running it will only run when the key is in the start position or the engine is running. If you clear the codes and attempt to restart do any other codes come back?

160000 miles have not checked to see if the pump is working on the "rail" yes the key was turned all the way on

The first thing you need to do is make sure that you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail on the engine. The codes that you have are all cylinder misfire codes if the fuel pressure started to fail it will cause cylinder misfire before the engine quits. You need at least 35 psi on the fuel rail. You can either jumper the fuel pump directly to see if you can make it run or if there's an electronic issue you won't have power to the fuel pump in the start position. Again you will have no power to the fuel pump with the key simply in the on position. Let me know if there is the fuel pressure we can go from there. After clearing the codes see if you have any other codes besides the cylinder misfire codes when you attempt to restart multiple times.
