Have someone turn the key but do not try to start. Also, listen by the gas tank for a 2-3 second hum. IF you hear nothing then check your fuses. If fuses are good your pump is bad. Pump is inside tank and will require removing the tank. I have done this before and it is a 4-5 hour job on a truck, maybe a little longer on a car.

On my 1999 plymouth breeze 2.0 sohc. it cranks but wont start. Relays , fuses are good. But i dont hear the fuel pump


First key on you should hear pump run a couple seconds if you think it's the pump have someone crank it over and another pound on the fuel tank this sometimes makes the pump motor start to run, if it does that may be enough for you to drive to a shop for a new fuel pump.

Car wont start


If the engine cranks the starter is doing its job.
You would need to check for fuel pressure at the injectors.
Its possible the pump was clogged up or overheated when you were driving it low on fuel. The gasoline keeps the pump cool and lubed.
The only fuel filter for your model is inside the gas tank.

You need to check the crank sensor, this controls tthe injector pulse. If it will attempt to start with alternate fuel but not on its own, it sounds like the injectors arent pulsing, so your not getting fuel. Try the crank sensor first.

Yes there are two fuel pumps of there are two fuel tanks.
One in each tank.
I assume you tried both tanks?
Best way to diagnose, put fuel in both tanks, and check each one.
The fuel pump relay in under the hood on the relay bank driver side fender.
You can provide power there on the lug going to the fuel pump. So, make sure the tank selector is working properly by setting the selector on the left tank, then turning the key to on, you should hear the pump come on for a couple seconds. Then do the same for the right tank. You need to make sure that the same pump is not coming on. Listen to each side. If that works, then the relay is OK too, and you have ruled out the pumps. Then check the valve that switches the tanks, see if there is any debris in it, or if it is even switching tanks.

Also check your fuel pressure at the fuel injector rail.

Have the crank shaft sensor check out. This is a beginning of the problem. After that it will never be able to start since the ECM doesn't know what the position of the piston reported through the crankshaft sensor to turn on the proper ignition. Good luck.
