Hi there. Thank you for posting your question!

I’m a retired master technician and tech instructor, so I’m pretty sure we can solve your issue together. However, before we start I need you to please consider the following facts:

- I do not know your skill level or what tools you have

- It may take a few back and forth replies to solve the issue

- There will probably be some tools and equipment needed for a proper diagnosis

Please let me know right away if you don’t have any mechanical skills or test equipment.

Is there current going to any of the fuses in the box under the hood (IPM)?

Is the wait to start (WTS) light coming on in the dash when you turn the ignition on?

The engine won't fire on its own if it doesn't have any fuel going into it. Is the lift pump filling the fuel filter?

the site already took 24 dollars have fuel pressure at injectors
Expert:  Juan Crespo replied 1 year ago.

Your'e going a little too fast for me. If you're so worried about the money the site took, I'll opt out and you can ask for a refund.

Good luck

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I doubt the ECM is actually awake.

Does the transfer pump run when the key is first turned on?

When the key is turned on do the injectors tick for about a minute?
