Cranks but wont start

I have a 2004 Ford Mustang GT with 100,000 miles. The battery went so after several weeks I replaced it. The car cranks beautiful but there is no sign of starting. I have a service engine light and am in the process of finding a reader. Any ideas...Also on the passenger side of the engine complartment there is a large 20 am single fuse box and ideas what this controlls....im thinking the MACH stero system?

Could be fuel pump. I think they say on the underside of fuse cover.

You could turn key on(not trying to start) u should hear fuel pump come on. You might need someone by gas tank to listen but all mine have been loud

I'd say your fuel pump went out. You can rent fuel pressure guages and hook it up under your hood, to just make sure.

You need to get the code read tho.

This is a back yard mechanic way I used a few Times to check a fuel pump put a little bit of gas in a squirt bottle or use starter fluid and spray just a little in your throttle body try and start the car if the car starts then dies you have a fuel pump problem if it doesn't start then it's most likely not fuel that's the issue.

Make sure to swap in a new fuel filter as well.

Yeah what he said. I just sprayed carb cleaner in my throttle body and the car ran until it burned it all up.... No fuel... Replaced pump... Kaboom car runs.
