Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

Could be a fuel pump problem. Check all fuses under the hood.

Also could be a cam or crank sensor problem, you would need a shop scan tool to diagnose.

Check fuses first.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
how do i know if there is a bad one?
Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

You can look with a flashlight through the plastic fuse housing and see if the fuse is blown.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
i pulled up a few the ignition battery ones they were intact
Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

Look for the fuel pump fuse

Do you have the owners manual? the fuses will be in there with the numbers.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No i do not, I was trying to look online and could not find it either.... unfortuneately the fusebox says to refer to owners manual...
Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

You could have a problem with the TIPM, it is a common problem. Do you hear the fuel pump buzz for a few seconds with the key turn to the on position?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

Unplug the cam sensor and see if it will run.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
where is that?
Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

I can send a diagram

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
no thats ok, i don't want it to be extra
Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

Its under the alternator. front of engine

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
if i unplug that, what is supposed to happen?
Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

If it starts then the cam sensor is bad. You may need to bring this to a shop to get diagnosed.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
do you think trying to jump it may help?
Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

Does it crank over fast?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
like normal but just doesn't catch to start
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
all the lights, radio, work
Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

Try holding the gas pedal to the floor while cranking, it may be flooded.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
ok
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
nope that didn't work
Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

And jump start it while cranking with the pedal to the floor, it may take a lot of cranking to get a fire.

Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

Spray some throttle cleaner into the throttle body while cranking and see if it fires, this will tell you if you have a fuel problem

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
as i was holding my pedal down and cranking, the longer i would keep it going, the slower it got.
Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

the battery may be going dead

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
i wonder if that could be my problem, not enough juice to start it?
Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

Try jumping it.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
i will. as soon as i find some cables
Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

Ok
