Good evening and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

Do you know what codes it has? Do you know if the fuel pump has 12v and ground?

I know if you run power straight to Starter it will turn over but it won't start cause the fuel pump doesn't kick on

We need to know what codes the PCM has, you will need a scantool for this. The PCM needs to see a signal from the crankshaft sensor to actuate the ASD relay which will power up the coil and injectors. Post the codes here when you get them.
