If there is no fuel pressure at the fuel rail, you may have a problem with the fuel pump or the electronics controlling it. This can be caused by a fuse, contaminants in the fuel, or a failed fuel pump. A dying battery is often caused by a malfunction in the vehicle’s charging system, so you should have this system, including the alternator, checked as well.

Consider having a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to determine why the car is not starting) and suggest the needed repairs.
