Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.


If the vehicle is spinning over normally and not starting this is likely fuel not getting to the engine.
The fuel pump is located inside of the fuel pump, when the key is turned to the on position you should be able to hear the fuel pump for about 3-5 seconds, this is the fuel system being primed.
If you do not hear the pump it is not kicking on and has likely failed, which will happen with or without warning.
