If you have no pressure at the fuel rail then that is the issue, the pump is not putting the prssure out. THe security will not stop the fuel from building pressure, it will stop the injectors from firing. Test the pressure. 50-60 psi is the spec at the rail. If that is far too low, then replace the pump and filter.
