Check the fuel pump relay and see if its getting hot when the fuel pump is active. If the relay is getting hot, either the fuel pump is not working properly or the relay is shorting out. Try replacing the fuel pump relay. If the relay is still getting hot, then the fuel pump will need to be replaced. If you need further assistance with your engine not starting, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
