Hello, have you checked the power and ground at the fuel pump with a test light or volt meter?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I disconnected the connecter in the trunk and have 12 v on one of the three pins.

Thanks, I'm suspecting that's for the fuel gauge. My wiring diagrams on this one are pretty bad to be honest. I'm going to open this back up to other experts for you. Someone should be with you shortly

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have a handful of things going on. You may have a loss of power or ground to the fuel pump but the pump may not be running because the engine controller isn't awake.

Do you have spark?
