Q: Replaced fuel pump and now car won't start 2006 VW Beetle 2.5L

asked by on

I've been having the P0171 (system too lean bank one) on my wife's car for months now. After replacing several things, several signs were pointing to a weak fuel pump. I just replaced it, started it up. Killed the car, tried starting it about 30 seconds later and I'm getting no crank no start. Any ideas what could be causing this?

My car has 91000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
