Start by squirting a little fuel into the throttle body and then crank it and see if it fires up .. if so its a fuel problem if not its going to be something in the electrical. holler if you need more thanks Jerry

run a fused wire from the positive side of your fuel pump to your "on" side of your ignition switch bypassing the alarm kill switch and, allowing you to drive the car

The 1999 doesn't have the red connector in the fuse box. That method isn't possible.
But I had the same problem and fixed it. This will sound weird, but trust me, it works.
1) A paint stir stick.
2) A coat hanger straightened out with one end bent into a small "j" hook.
3) A flashlight.
There is a loop of cable that goes from the engine compartment latch to an area underneath the left rear tail light. Pulling on this cable will open the engine compartment.
To open the engine compartment, you need to:
1) Use the paint stir stick to gently pry up the left rear tail light slightly. Don't pry it up too much and break anything: just pry it up a little so that a small gap opens up between the bottom of the tail light and the car body.
2) Shine the flashlight into the gap and look for a small, thin stainless steel cable. Use the "j" hook end of the coat hanger to pull the cable out from under the tail light.
3) Once the cable has been pulled out enough so that you can grasp it with your fingers, give it a sharp tug. This will pop open the latch to the engine compartment. Now you can jump the battery and start the car.

Check this out. Had the same problem. Easy fix. When you pull up at the lights does it blow steam everywhere as your water drips onto the exhaust. Next step is the water gets onto the coils engine light comes on and it mis fires!! Anyway solution. As it is doing it when you look at the bottom of the expansion tank you will see the water dripping. The tanks had a weakness and have I believe now been modified. Take it off and put your fingers over two of the three pipe holes, then blow down the other. Wifes often good at this!!! You will here a hissing as the tank has a pin hole in. It comes out fast as the pressure builds. To remove the tank undo the air box (1 x 10mm bolt and the screw on the large jubilee clip) Then undo the two petrol pipe bolts ensure your engine is cold. You should need a seventeen mm spanner. Then just under the engine lid you will see a 10mm nut which you need to undo. The box then slide forward toward the middle of the car and then back in a fastion!!! Give it a good blow you will see it. If you really must get in the bath with it and do it under the water.
Now get another and replace it.
Good luck everyone..... j
