what type of car/setup is it?
Check the wiring for the fuel pump. I had this problem on a 93 nx and it was because the wiring under the rear seat was corroded and shorted out. Please make sure that you give as much info as possible when asking for help with a problem.

yea check all of the connections, i had this issue with my foglights, the fuses would keep blowing up and it was because there was some moisture in one of the fog lights and it would cause a short due to the wires being wet

ok this is whats going on now. We folowed the wiring to the abs computer and unpluged it and the pump runs and shuts off like it should.I put my computer in and it still dosnt start. so what do you all think?

You should try to be more specific about it. How doesn't it start? Turn over but no fire? Just clicking? Nothing at all?

When you say you put your ECU in do you mean his car didn't have one?

when you turn the key to try and turn it on you should hear the pump turn on it will be like a very quite high pitched beeeep.
