Bonni will not start
Hey new here. names jake.

so here it is ive got a 97 se and i moved it in my driveway then i went to drive it the next morning and it would turn over but not fire. check gages light is on now. i have spark but no pressure in the fuel rail. i went over the fuses real quick and didnt find any blown ones. i jumped the fuel pump out on the relay circut (on the relay its peg 5 and 3 i think). still no pressure. and one more thing when i stop cranking it over it dings at me 3 or 4 times. i have never heard of this before.

Please help!

Is the security light flashing? Try a different key. You may need to do a VATs override.

no its not
im thinking its the fuel pump that went out. i checked the voltage across the contact pins of the fuel pump relay socket and i only got like 5 volts. so im assuming it should have 12 volts but if the pump motor went bad it could cause a lot of resistance causing it to only show 5 volts. but then shouldnt the fuse blow?

idk im still open to whatever anyone has to offer.

what do the 4 extra chimes mean?

Them chimes always sound when the check gauge light comes on

Sounds like a fuel pump.

When the security system is an issue the car should start and die after about 3-5 seconds. (At least this is true for a 97) Reason for this is the fuel pump primes automatically with key on and then if the security gets triggered by a bad key etc, the pcm has already primed the cylinders and does not allow the injectors to pulse after that priming.

yeah my next step was to manualy put power to the pump right from the plug under the car but i cant find the wiring diagram that shows me the colors of the wires.
does any one know what they are?

There's actually an easier way. Behind the battery should be a lead with a green connector IIRC. You can test there for power. If you have power, the relay is powering for the FP. I don't recall the color of the wires for power at the tank. There is a flat 4 pin connector on the passenger side rear of the tank (tucked up usually) that are the power, ground and level sender.
