Question about 1984 Porsche 928
Car has been setting for 1year fuel pump does not turn on car is standard
Id be inclined to believe that if vehicle has been sitting for a year with fuel left in it then you will probably have to clean/overhaul or replace the entire fuel system as fuel does not age well it turns acidic and destroys and melts all its left soaking in.Sorry its not good news but there you are.Have you taken the fuel filler cap off to see if the fuel smells stale.Even if you fill the tank with fresh fuel the damage is already done.Good luck and hope its not as serious

Before you reset the fuel pump, make sure to read all of the following instructions!!!!!
1.) Look for an access panel in the trunk, driver's side; it might even be labeled "Fuel Pump Reset".
2.) Open the compartment and press the red button. This should reset the pump.
3.) At this point it might be a good idea to "burp" the fuel tank. This will probably be the easiest thing you do all day! Just pop the cover and unscrew the gas cap, this will release any preasure built up inside the tank. As long as you're in a controled environment, go ahead and leave the cap open until you finish "Step 4". Otherwise "burp" it a couple of times while you're priming the lines.
4.) The next step is to prime the pump. In other words, make sure there is enough gas in the fuel lines to start the car. The easiest way to do this is by turning the key back and forth from the "OFF" to the "ON" position. *** Be sure not to turn all the way to the "START" position until you have performed "Step 4", at least 3 or 4 times. If you attempt to start the car before the fuel pump is properly primed, you will run a serious risk of burning out the pump. This could lead to even more costly repairs!!!
5.) Replace the gas cap before attempting ignition.
6.) Once you have reset the pump, burped the tank, primed the fuel lines, and replaced the gas cap; you should be all set! Go ahead and give it a crank, good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
