'01 Cobra no fuel delivery

Was going to fire up the ’01 Cobra; it fired but didn’t catch. Tried starting it again, engine sounds strange while cranking. I also do not hear the fuel pump whining when I turn on the ignition. Where shall I begin looking?

Thank You

what I would do is pull a spark plug wire, crank motor, hold boot near something metal..make sure you have spark (or use an inductive timing light if you have one)
Next if that works, spray some starting fluid in the throttle body, if it fires one time you know you have fuel issue or not...
Obviously not hearing any "fuel pump whine" is probably the biggest clue...pump may have failed

Check simple things first like fuses.

Check the fuel pump shut off in the trunk next to the driver's side tail light

I don't always down shift, but when I do I'm next to a prius so they can hear me hurt the enviroment!

Is that red button supposed to be up or down when the key is on?
