when you turn key to on,NOT START,the check engine light comes on.a few seconds later when the cel goes out,you shouls hear A CLICK SOUND.the main relay is under the drivers side dash,behind and above the cruise control box.google this part number,see what it looks like,Part Number: 20113................................................................................................................................................................

well it's not the main also called the fuel pump relay then.very common problem on the 90's up into the 2000's, all makes and models,it's a cold solder joint inside the relay on the green circuit board.really don't need to remove the relay,just take a small screwdriver and take the guts out and resolder the cracked/cold solder joints on the green circuit board and snap it back in.then it's new again.but not your problem.do like Nahdee1 said,check behind your work AGAIN,and put some GAS in it.you're missing one of these>>.. #1 compression #2 ignition/spark.. #3 air/fuel... not really in that order.
