yeah you need a professional mechanic for this ... cuz this could be anything such as a crank position sensor or something.

i had the same issue, couldnt hear the pump when key was turned to on position.

FINALLY FOUND THE PROBLEM AFTER 6 MONTHS OF FRUSTRATING STARTS AND MONEY WASTED!

its the connection between the fuel pump to the relay behind the rear fusebox.
I pushed the connection (wire harness) together to the back of the fusebox where the fuel pump relay is located on the fusebox. seems to be a misconnection that won't allow the power to reach the fuel pump.

still havent fixed it properly but atleast i know where the problem is located.
hope it helped you guys somehow...

Thanks. Good info. Have you tried putting silicone dielectric grease on the relay contacts & inserting & removing it a few times? That may or may not help. The usual fix is just to replace the fuse block (which is easier than you might think).

CruisinG6 will become famous soon enough
Thread Revival Whoo!

Greenman, would you happen to know how much a new rear (trunk) fuse block goes for? I'm worried my bent tabs for the parking lights fuse may come around to bite me in the butt one day. haha

Not off the top of my head. They are more then they should be because there is only oem available.

i havent tried anything to fix it yet. but when it doesnt wanna start i havta pop the trunk and stick my hand behind the fusebox to push it back in. it helps with the auto start, keeps cranking til the connection is made then fires instantly. it seems to happen quite often now. i think this weekend im going to pull out the fusebox and re-wire it but for now ill try that silicone shit on the relay.

pretty embarrasing when your on the first date and the car doesnt wanna start after dinner. kept trying to crank after half an hour, but all it was, was a dumb connection error.

spent about 900$ to replace the fuel pump. waste of time and money...
other then the amount of gas it burns i finally love this car again....

and that first date bit is hilarious cuz it happened to me 3 nights ago, but if she still wants to hang out, then you know she aint materialistic!

that issue involves the socket that holds the fuel pump relay. try manipulating the relay & listening for the pump to run. replacing the rear compartment fuse block is the usual fix. visually, you'll see evidence of localized heat buildup if this is your problem.
