Im stumped

So heres the story..

I go to work.. Everything works fine.
Leave work..everything works fine.

About an hour later i go outside to leave and the car wont start. You can hear it trying to turnover but it just wont go. I kno the battery alternator and starter are all good.

Im thinking its the fuel pump but i can hear it and dont wanna risk buying one and doing all that labor only to find out its not the problem.

Any other possible problems?

Look into checking your coil box too... That damn part has cost me a lot of time in the past.

Did you fill your tank on that day? If so, maybe water now in your tank.

Attempt to give it some gas. I got bad gas in the past and I had to just rev it at like 3k RPMs for a bit till it burned all the bad stuff out and it worked fine.

But idk if that's it or not. Wouldn't crank I finally gave it had as I darted it and it started up.

Cycle the key a couple of times before actually trying to start it. See if that works.

Turns out my key had gone bad, when i put the key in the remote it would read it as a theft and disable the fuelpump.

Got new key and all is good now.
