Customer Question

2007 mercury optimal won't start. It turns over just fine. I have the water muffs on it. When I turn the key it has a steady beep. It's been stored for years. New fresh gas. Only maybe 2hrs run time on this motor. Safety switch is on run.

Remove the engine hood. Stand on the left side of the engine, have a helper turn the key from off to on, do you hear an electric pump run?
