Question about 2006 Suzuki Forenza
Engine cranks but won't start
No engine stated.!
fuses good,? 12vdc on both sides key on?
spark good on all cylinders.??????????
this is first. not fuel, fuel is dead last.
if above is ok the engine runs on test fuel.
if the engine runs for say 3 seconds on test fuel, and SOUNDS
great, that means the spark and engine are ok, leaving>?
easy , right?
if true all that, then the scan tool is next.
wont buy one,? like most here? (you cant fix cars with no scan tool)
make up or buy a NOID lamp. (a small 12vdc lamp)
see if the injectors are all firing.
if not, the PCM is cutting fuel.
if the injectors fire (electric pulse) then it may be fuel relay not closing.
did you check for 12vdc (11vdc min) at the pump? cranking
you must crank it and check,
there are 3 kinds of cars. (we assume last)
1: pump runs keyon, full time, (illegal now)
2: pump runs for 3 seconds, and stops keyon, (for priming only)
3: runs only cranked, (most cars) and runs running engine.
see that logic there?
some cars cut pump and injection with no spark. ( to cut fires)
this logic is inside the PCM brain, called firmware.
just assume the car is smarter and use #3 above. on all cars
and I win..
the scan tool will show errors cranked for 5 seconds.
now why i cant leave generic help and answer specifcially
no engine stated.
to fix them you need to know whats there, first.
the line up
1.4 L E-TEC I4 (petrol)
1.6 L E-TEC I4 (petrol)
1.8 L Family II I4 (petrol)
2.0 L Family II I4 (petrol)
2.0 L RA 420 I4 (diesel)
next time post the engine in your car.
open hood , look up see EPA sticker there and engine type?

SOURCE: no fuel
There is break in the wiring to the fuel pump, as you said when you give it direct power it runs. In case you are not able to detect the break in wiring, the only alternative would be to bypass the wiring and put in additional fuse, to make it work with the ignition. You have replaced the pump and that did not fix it , so all in all its a wiring problem.
