Q: Car won't start after putting in brand new fuel pump!

asked by on

Hello my name is Chelsey. My husband and I recently replaced our fuel pump and now that we have a brand new fuel pump we drove it around the block everything was fine and then we get it back home and it will not start back up after we shut it off. I can stick the key in and it'll "ding ding" but trying to turn it over and it does NOTHING. If anyone has any thoughts or answers I would be so grateful thank you!

My car has 196,000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
