1996 Mustang won't start

Hi every one, I'm working on 1996 mustang 4.6 GT for a friend! He started it and it quiet! he try restarting it just cranks and won't start! I check all the fuses and relays and switched places with them and still no start! can't hear the fuel pump went cyling the key! unpluged fuel pump harness plug and checked wiring pluged back in and car started and ran about a minute and quit like someone turn the key off! So i drop the tank and installed a new pump and still no start! Then I changed out the crank sensor car started ran about a minute and quit try restarting and it just cranks not even a pop! I'm thinking a wiring problem! open for sugguestion

Do you hear the fuel pump prime at initial key on?

Are you certain there aren't any vacuum leaks?

Are you positive that the spark plug wires have been connected to the correct cylinders?

Here's a crank with no start check list for additional reading.

Smile Mustang is running again

The problem was a loose connection in the IP fuse box! 20amp fuse #18 Wasn't getting a good connection on the out leg. Thanks
