Just had the same problem. replaced cap rotor, plugs wires..etc. still would crank no start. i got really angry with this so i went old skool on it, and treated it like my 1975 chevy one ton.  I hammered the gas and cranked it till it sputtered and eventually started. note: by pressing the gas to the floor and cranking will put computer in recovery mode and not let new fuel in to the engine. now it is able to try to burn all the left over fuel sitting in each cylinder. after about 45sec. to a min of cranking she started to come to life again. one other problem did come up. after blowing out all the extra fuel and ****, it did blow my pre-cat o2 sensor. no big deal $45.00 at checker. hope this helps

Inhibitor relay


No, the inhibitor relay is to prevent cranking when not in park or neutral. You will have to look elsewhere for the no start. Check fuel pressure, and check spark.

MIGHT BE A RELAY ! LOCATED UNDER HOOD, YOU SHOULD SEE RELAY BOX NEXT TO BATTERY. MAKE SURE BATTERY TERMINALS ARE CLEANED, PUT SOME VASOLINE ON TERMINALS, RECONNECT, TIGHTEN. CHECK ALL GROUND WIRES. ARELAY BOX MAY ALSO BE LOCATED NEXT TO POWER STEERING . COULD HAVE A FAULTY SOLONOID@ STARTER, IGNITION SWITCH COULD ALSO BE FAULTY, ITS NEVER EASY TO PINPOINT ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS, PROCESS OF ALIMINATION, CHECK ALL STARTING CIRCUIT SYSTEMS, IS YOUR SHIFT LEVER ALL THE WAY IN PARK ? DOES ENGINE CRANK ? OR DEAD, NO POWER ? ARE YOU GETTING SPARK ? HOW ABOUT FUEL ? DID YOU REPLACE BOTH THE AIR &FUEL FILTERS ? THE STARTER / SOLONOID IS WHAT CRANKS THE ENGINE, I THINK YOUR PROBLEM IS THERE ! REPLACE RELAY TO STARTING SYSTEM, ARE YOUR SPARK PLUG WIRES NEW ! THEY WILL SHORT OUT ANY SPARK IF OLD, DIRTY, I SUGGEST A TUNEUP, NEW FILTERS, AND REPLACE STARTER/SOLONOID !!!!!!

Where is the main fuel relay located


Stand by the gas tank while someone turns the key to ON. Listen for the fuel pump to come on for a second or two as it should. It will only come on for about two seconds to pressurize the fuel system, then shut off and only come on again when the engine is cranked. If you hear it, then the pump is working. Hence, you would smell gas after cranking the car a bit. If no sound from the pump, look for the relay in the power distribution box under the hood. The box's cover should have a diagram for fuel pump location. Or your owner's manual might show it.
