In the engine compartment fuse box there is a 20Amp fuse to protect the fuel pump which is located in the gas tank. There is a fuel pump relay which needs to see engine oil pressure before it operates the fuel pump relay. There is also a 20 Amp fuse (Distr) that protects the ignition system located in the engine compartment fuse box. There are so many things that could cause a no start condition. An engine basically needs fuel, spark and mechanical integrity to start and run.
