Unhappy Scooby Wont Start. Please help

Hi all,

i have 1994 JDM WRX. two days ago i came back home from my mates house with no problems. however the next day i came to my car to start it up and it would refuse to start. the starter motor kicks and the engine turns, but it just wont start.

i have also checked my car for error codes, the error codes i got where 24 and 45. i checked my boost solenoid and the idle control solenoid and it all looks ok. Plus these wouldnt cause my car not to start

i have checked all the fuses, however i did notice that i couldnt hear the fuel pump come on and i did hear the fuel pump relay come on. so i took out my rear seats and got to my fuel pump. i have changed the walbro pump with the standard fuel pump to see if it comes on. however still no luck. however i did notice that when i had the fuel pump just connected on its own. the pump did not start, this includes the walbro and the standard one.

i been considering two options so far:

1. buy a brand new fuel pump

2. change the fuel pump harness - also need to find out where i can get this from.

3. ?

Does anyone else know what else i can do or look out for? Please help.

No fuel in tank.
Fuel filter clogged.

Cracked coil pack shorting out.

A connector got unplugged, or a wire loose.

It was the conencters under the passenger seat(drivers side) the power cable in the connecter had melted the plastic and caused it to have a dodgy connection. i have now fixed this. cheers for all the help. i felt well happy when she started up again.

cheers again pete
