'97 v6 mustang

I have a '97 v6 mustang that has been sitting for 2years and tired to start it up but no luck. I change the oil, spark plugs, busted fuses and reset the fuel pump switch. The lights flash, no theft light comes on, but that's all. Hope someone can help me with this problem.

The theft light might be blown. Do you have the right key?

It's the right key, when I replace the parts it started but die once I got off the gas. I thought I saw the theft light came on once when I turn the key but I'll double check.

I'd take the coil pack to autozone and have it tested.

I bought 07 GT cause I was having trouble with the v6 but I just can't sell it. Now that I have a little bit of extra money and plenty of time to work on it, I want to get it up and running.
