FIRST>try the spare PATS key..did someone put the wrong key in the switch?is the theft light blinking/flashing rapidly? any work done on the car recently? when key is turned to ON,fuel pump fuse sends power to the fuel pump relay,from relay>power is sent to the inertia switch,from inertia switch to fuel pump connector.

Yes light is flashing tapidly. Yes, just installed used motor. My grandkids stuck a stick n the door lock and key wont turn ,(unlock) so I had to unhook the lock itself and use the keyless entry. I had issues with tje fuel pump b4 I cjangef motors. I could put tje tilt wheel all the way up and woulf start. Now pump doesn't kick om at all. I can hook jumper to pump and workd but no injectors or fuel pressure. Thanks for any help with this matter
