Right, if he DID have voltage then he would know that it is in fact the pump.

I dont know why u think checking for spark is un safe ive done that vary test on hundreds of motors just dont touch the spark plug hold on to the wire boot. But since ur fuel system says 0psi obviouslly spark is not the issue run a power line directolly from the bat and see if it ingauges the pump if not faulty pump if it does then its prolly ur anti theft then. See easy lol.

Yes if you don't get a voltage, plug in the fuel pressure gauge again and do what Hawk said. Run a wire from the positive to the battery and the negative to ground. Only do it just long enough to see if there is pressure. I say check for PRESSURE because you can't asume you are going to hear the pump.

We don't hear the pump prime, no fuel pressure, we r going to check wires tmrw. I knw now looking online that the pats thing can shut off the fuel and pump but we aren't getting a theft light while cranking. I was told it would blink 6 times if it was a pats thing. Also looking online if the crank sensor is bad it will shut off the fuel. We have checked the inertia switch, we've checked fuses, done the battery restart.

It's got to be a either a bad pump or a sensor now. Just have to eliminate all other possibilities.

Ok I finally got to check the fuel pump cable connecter. I got 12v at the plug and I know that should mean that the fuel pump is out. But before I drop the tank and do the swap I have one more ? A guy told my dad that it shouldn't read 12v consecutively but just for about 2 seconds for when the pump primes. I don't know what it's supposed to do but i think it should show power as soon as he key is in the on position. Let me know what you think.

The voltage goes down when it primes right? That's expected, the pump is working a little harder when priming.
