Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

It sounds like you think its not starting due to lack of fuel. If this is correct can you tell me WHY you think that?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I was just hoping it to be as simple as gas cause the fuel guage doesn't work. From there I'm at a loss Chris said no cables were hooked up. Only the radio. But after killing the battery it just won't fire up again.

Got some starting fluid? If so try shooting a little in the intake and see if it will fire up on that. That way we know we arent chasing our tails hunting down a fuel issue when the issue is really spark related.

And what kind of vehicle is this?
