Here is the problem. Timing belt broke replaced that. Car will not start. Now with that being said all the fuses are good had the relays checked they are also good, new fuel pump, new fuel filter. when you turn the key on the fuel pump doesn't run. if you jumper the dlc it will run only after you try to start the car, not just when you turn the key on like it should. when you try to start the car it fires runs for a second and dies during this time you can hear the fuel pump running and the relay kicking off. oh yeah the relay under dash doesnt click when key is turned on either. tested wiring to the pump and light on tester only lights up when you try to start car not when key is on. im starting to lean towards an ignition problem...oh yeah the inertia switch is fine too any help would be great.....thanks

This is usually the case when the belts are not tight enough. It may also happen if there was some oil spilled on one of the pulleys or something that would cause some slippage and wear on the belts. Most likely because they aren't tight enough.

1.9L SOHC (SEFI on Valve Cover)engine, no, they are non-interferance engines, put a new timing belt on it and go.
1.8 DOHC engine, yes, it will destroy the valves, head, pistons, and if really bad, the block too. These engines are interferance engines, where the valves just barely miss the piston as it comes up, and when the belt breaks it will hit the valves and destroy the engine.
