when it does not start ck fuel pressure and spark.if it were tps you should have a code but read it with a scanner to ck operation.

Thanks will try it. Have you heard anything about the factory alarm causing a similar issue?

its poss have the anti theft codes scanned. if the alarm is the problem it will shut off injector pulse as to not flood eng with gas
