What causes fuel pump to not kick on?
There can be a sensor or electronic control unit (ecu) issue. If either due to a faulty crank sensor, or ecu, the crank sensor signal is not being read, the ignition and fuel pump systems will not power up. Also, a faulty ignition module can create the same issue.
Does the ECM control the fuel pump?
Does the ECM control the fuel pump? Some electric fuel pumps are controlled by the ecm and most cars have eliminated this problem by having a switch that keeps the fuel pump shut off until the engine builds up oil pressure. If you have a car ecm with an electric fuel pump and you suspect fuel problems, do this.

Will a bad fuel pressure regulator cause a car not to start?
A bad fuel pressure regulator can create a difficult to start or ‘no start’ engine.

When the engine is hot, this can make it harder to start the engine.
