Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. Have you checked for power down at the starter?
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.
Have you checked for any codes in the computer? Have you checked for any power going to the fuel pump? If not this is going to be the next step. Yes it may be possible to feel pumps not coming on and the no crank condition are related. The only way to find this out is to see if the computer is awake with the key on.

There are couple ways to do this you could check to see if the check engine light comes on with the key on or you could see if there's communication with the onboard computer using a scan tool or a code reader.
