Question about Volkswagen Cars & Trucks
New bulbs in both headlight modules and now car won't start. Car has AXQ engine, sprayed a hint of starting fluid into intake and engine hit a few times which leads me to a fuel issue.
Check the fuses for any blown ones

Check the fuel pressure first.

Most Chrysler cars do have an anti-theft system that can cut out the engine.
I would call the service department, with your VIN handy, and see if yours was equipped with one, and what you need to reset it.
If that isn't the problem, your EGR valve might be bad, or the sensor for it. I've seen a lot of cars where if either the valve itself, or the sensor are malfunctioning, the car won't run properly.
I would also check your MAF and IAC, as those can cause the car to not run.
If you can, get an OBDII code scanner, and pull the codes from your car, they might give you a more specific place to look. (Most parts stores will let you take one home, you put a deposit down, and get it back when you bringthe scanner back to them)

CHECK FUEL PUMP FUSE AND RELAY.IF ALL IS GOOD HAVE SOME ONE TURN IGNITION KEY TO RUN POSITION.DONT START.IF YOU HEAR FUEL PUMP RUNNING IN FUEL TANK. FILTER COULD BE STOPPED UP.IF YOU HEAR NO SOUND FROM FUEL PUMP.IT COULD BE BAD.ALSO SCAN THE CAR MAKE SURE YOU HAVE NO PCM FAULTS.BECAUSE PCM CONTROLS FUEL PUMP ALSO.

Testimonial: "yep thanks, I'll try checking the fuses and fuel pump, then after that i'll get the scan done. this is a great car to drive, one of America's best."
Check for 12 volts power at the fuel pump harness. If no power is going to the pump, check the fuel pump relay. Also, check the fuel pump inertia switch. Ford usually has it on either inside left or right rear trunk fenders.

You say t pump is coming on, but do you fuel coming up to the fuel injector rail? You can check for fuel by pushing down the valve located at the left front side of fuel rail. It looks like a tire air fill stem. Be very careful as fuel is under 40 psi pressure and can spray all over the place. do this with engine OFF and have a rag to cover the valve. Just press with tip of screwdriver and be sure valve is covered. If a little gas come out,you know you have fuel. If not gas then check fuel delivery system i.e pump, filter, lines or pickup tube.
If there is fuel in the rail, then there is most likely a problem with the control module (computer).
Check for fault codes with an OBD II reader. You can usually rent one at your local part store. You can look up fault codes to find out where the problem might lie.
