Spins but won't fire. Just replaced fuel pump. made no

Customer Question

Spins but won't fire. Just replaced fuel pump. made no difference. I had Shut ignition off to clear high rpm problem temporarily. Never came back up. Now I wish I had never gone for max mileage by coasting with engine off and bump starting with clutch. been doing this for about a year.
JA: Has the clutch been slipping? Are you having any trouble shifting?
Customer: Not any more. Cable finally broke on my 93 GT. Good results with cable from Advanced. The 2 cables I got from Autozone were POS. Had to shim cable at firewall though. No built in adjuster like original.
JA: Are you fixing your 9-3 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Traced through impact reset button. Seemed to work the first time, then nothing. Have yet to try junkyard spare. Replaced Fuel pump.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: was only showing 6.9V at hot to reset button.

Does the engine have spark while cranking? Does it run on starting fluid?

Does the fuel pump run and does the vehicle start if you supply battery voltage to the fuel pump reset button?
