Hello, welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** a Certified Auto Technician with 27+ years experience. I will do my best to assist you. please keep in mind that I may need to ask questions of you before I can answer. When you reply please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible pertaining to your concern.
The continued cranking when you let off the key is a normal condition, This is a newer feature called "Tip Start". Tip start can be a bit confusing when you have a "No Start" issue as the starter continues to crank even after letting go of the key... Many people think that this is a malfunction when in fact it is not...
As for the "No Start" concern, have you made sure there is fuel in the tank? Did you notice the check engine light on recently?
Was there any strange things that may have happened during the last drive cycle?
Keep me posted and we can go from there...
Thank you,
Robert

Nothing out of the ordinary... there is a check engine light on now and my husband scanned it and it is p0700. ... a couple months ago it came on and he scanned it and it said control module... my problem is I don't have money to just pit have parts at it

There is a half tank of gas or more... and it said gas cap several times when I started it recently
Expert:  Robert R replied 2 years ago.
Neither of those scenarios should cause a no start. The P0700 is for a transmission related concern and the Gas Cap message would not cause a no start.... At this time I recommend a fuel pressure test. Can your husband access a fuel pressure tester and run a fuel pressure test? If you need the procedure, I can round that up for you...
Keep me posted...
Thank you,

There is no fuel prussure... the fuel pump is not coming on at all.
Expert:  Robert R replied 2 years ago.
If the fuel pump is not coming on, the post common cause for that is a fuel pump failure... To be sure, you will need a multimeter to check for power and ground at the fuel pump connector.. This test must be run while cranking for accurate results....
Let me know if you need some diagnostic info to check for power at the fuel pump connector...
Keep me posted...
Thank you,
Robert
