Have you checked to make sure it is getting fuel? Is the filter clogged up by chance. Check all your ground connections. just a couple of ideas.

Doc here,

Have the module tested at auto zombie...

Check all the connectors , especially the firewall connector for Clean , tight fitting, plugs, no burned or bent pins or wires..clean any bad ones you find..

Check the battery cables AND all secondary wires going to the battery, be sure they are corrosion free, and tight, no bad crimp connectors.

Doc
