Scan for codes and check fuel pressure with a gauge. Most auto parts retailers rent it.

Also, check fuses and relays like PGM and main relays.

You either have a weak battery of a parasitic drain on the battery when parked. First step is to have the battery charged and replaced if it is due. If you continue to have a problem wit a new battery, you can test for a draw.

There is a procedure for finding a battery draw like that.

You will need a digital ammeter and a jumper wire with clips on the ends to do this.
First rig any door switches so you can have a door open without triggering the interior lights and unplug the hood light. Remove one battery cable and attach the meter in series between the battery cable and battery post. Take the jumper wire and also attach it the same way. Leave the jumper wire on for at least ten minutes to expire all the automatic timers. Now remove the jumper wire and read the meter. Anything over 50 ma is too much draw. The way you locate this is to start removing fuses one at a time until the meter drops to normal level. This will be the circuit with something staying on. Determine what components are part of that circuit and check them individually until the problem is isolated.

Hi mcgheed,

You would need to test the power source to the ignigion coil and if present, then you would need to check the igniter unit.
