If you jump the car from another, will it start?

No it will not start when I jump it from another car. I disconnected the fuel line from the fuel tank an it seem there is a clog in the line or fuel pump

Can you hjear the fuel pump running when the key is turned to the on position? There is also an inertia switch in the trunk. Make sure the red button is locked in the down position. The fuel pump relay is also a known failure on these cars.

Left side close to where the trunk hunge is. It is a little square box that has a button on the top. If fuel is good, check for spark. No spark, look at the crank sensor. Also check the wiring under the right front bumper area under the battery, There is a loop in the wiring where water collects and will corrode wires.
