On Sunday my vr4 turned off at a red light, and refused to turn back on ever since. The battery and alternator are good, and it does attempt to start, but never does. Any ideas?

bad coolant temp sensor, blown fuel pump, bad CAS, bad ISC motor causing the ecu to burn out, blown head gasket, snapped timing belt.

Coolant sensor is good
CAS is good bc it worked on my GSR
Even double checked the relays, and nothing wrong there
Head gaskets/timing belt is perfectly fine
I have a strong suspicion that the ECU burned out, because the car would give me trouble starting prior to this.. just not to sure how to get around to fixing it

Validate the three needs to run:

Got fuel?
Got spark?
Got compression?

Rule out what you have and concentrate on what you don't.

Also, get the manual, there is a PDF somewhere, and it has a walkthrough in the fuel section just for this situation.

Looks like a blade fuse blown in half? Why is that in the trunk? Isn't even on the side of the fuel pump. All fuses should be as close to the battery as possible.

Technically it was close to the battery (it was placed in the trunk), but when I got the car I moved it back to the front
