Have no power to coil or fuel pump wont start speedomater say no bus

blown fuse?
my 2002 has no way for speedo to say or display that.
no power, what does that mean.
1: cant hear it.
2: my voltmeter shows 0v cranking.

here is a little rule on pumps fuel
no spark no fueling. so spark is first.
and rule 2, the pump on most (1/2?) never pump until cranked.
(fire prevention and other reason, ask)

Tracer has new fuel pump cranks over gets spark after cranking checked plugs and are drycould the fuel filter be plugged

I'd check at the fuel rail for fuel pressure first. If you don't have the appropriate psi and you can hear the fuel pump engage with key on engine off then odds are your filter is restricted and would need to be restricted. If you have pressure and hear pump initiating then it is something totally unrelated. Another messy way to determine if a fuel pump is working is to disconnect the fuel line where it attaches to the filter and with a drain pan and spill pads around the general area turn your key to on position and it would prime the system or in this case shoot a burst of fuel from the line (you would definately know if the pump worked or not) If you choose this method do it when the vehicle is cool, wear the appropriate protective gear and have a fire extinguisher nearby as a precautionary measure.

Died going down the road like you just turned the key off eveything still works just wont start when i checked the coil for fire I found something very strange the coil was firing all the time with the key...

fuel pumps are bad for going out on these.. does the fuel pump buzz when the key is in the ON position? but dont try starting it, you're just listening for the fuel pump to buzz...

1994 Tracer

usually a surefire way to check the problem is first check the fuel pump relay.when you turn the key you should hear the relay click(they are located underneath the center console on the passengerside) if the relays are good, then check the fuel shutoff switch to see if it was triggered(this is located on the passenger side in the rear wheel housing,there is a little pull off panel and it's the reset button on top if it's tripped. If you still have a problem the othere things to check are the firing of the plugs if there is fire your fuel pump is bad,if not you eithere have a bad coil pack or a timing belt issue
