I am looking for advice on were to start. I am not getting fuel to the injectors. Is there a safty switch, a way to test the fuel pump?

What condition is the fuel in? Have you changed the fuel, and cleared the fuel line?
Does the fuel pump run right when you turn on the key, with the kill switch set to run?
I had a problem that the ecm needed to be re-programmed after a dead battery incident, but my problem was too much fuel...the dealer could not explain why, but the short version is they reprogrammed the ecm and replaced the battery and all was fine.

My question is, how did they reprogram the ECM? Is it something I can fix or do you need a scanner? I bought a firebolt with no battery, good fuel pressure and I am having trouble getting it started.
thanks

What is the ECM? Same problem as above, sat for 1.5 years, nothing. I replaced the battery, it cranks but no start. How expensive to have EMC reprogrammed? Thanks

My Firebolt sat for 1 year and the gas went bad, deteriorated the sock and jammed the fuel pump, this might be why you are not getting fuel.
