Fuel pump relay most likely, otherwise you could be looking at a faulty cam or crank sensor, sometimes the coolant temp sensor can fail and cause that. Scan your ECM, If no communication fuel pump relay also provides power to computer.

Volvo ignition / fuel problems

if its cranking but wont start then its possible its your fuel regulator, the fuel filter is clogged or the fuel pump is bad. check the pin on the right side of the injector rail, its got a little brass knob that unscrews, if you unscrew it and then try to start it and fuel comes out its not the pump or filter but maybe the regulator or at tis age like my volvo the injectors need replacing a simple OBD code reading will tell you.

Engine wont crank

A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch. Also the grounds between the engine and frame or body of the car.

1998 nissan sentra cranks but wont start parks but no fuel.

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

sounds like you need a new battery, it probably isnt running enought cranking amps to start your car, try a different battery and it should start fine

Car wont start engine will crank

One of those relays supply power to the injectors. They fail, as well as the fuel pump relay, rpm sensor, and the main pump. Have you checked the trouble codes in the engine or ignition computers?
