First, verify the fuel tank is not empty. If you have fuel and the fuel gauge and pump is inoperative, then you may have a bad fuel pump and connector to the fuel pump. If you are still having trouble, or if you need help having this tested, a certified mechanic from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to diagnose the starting issue and perform any needed repairs.
