Does the power come on but it just does not start? If this is so check your connections. A loose battery connection could cause this. Crank it down hard (not too hard but hard enough to make it not move with force) and see if it corrects the problem. If this does not work check any connection you messed with. Then check your fuses for each part. There are many fuses in a cluster that could cause your car not to start. Easiest way is to check the batt, then fuses, then connections. If this does not work get back to be and ill work it out with you.

05 c240 turns over won't start

most likely you have a bad crank sensor or fuel problem you need to check fuel pressure ,if you have enough pressure ,most likely you need crank position sensor,if you don`t have fuel pressure ,it might be your fuel pump relay or the pump, i would start with the relay first very unexpensive. you can also hear the pump if it`s working by cranking the engine and listening rear of the car for a humming sound .
good luck

Do you hear the fuel pump running on the prime cycle (when you turn on the key) (runs for 3 seconds) or when you have oil pressure?Have someone listen back by the tank for the wrrrrr.If you do have to change the fuel pump,make your life easy and just tilt up (lift) the pickup box from the drivers side to access the fuel pump.Takes 20 minutes to change it that way.

2002 alero turns over wont stay started sudden problem

It sounds like it may be the fuel pump. Have someone turn the ignition key to the 'On' position (don't start car) and listen to hear if you have a whining coming from your fuel tank. If not, your pump is bad. If that's not the culprit, then check your gas. You may have had a bad fill up. Try adding some octane boost to your gas and changing your fuel filter.

1997 bravada wont start

Hook fuel pressure gauge up to port near firewall. A battery charger sometimes boosts the vehicle voltage just enough to engage weak fuel pump. Should show 50-60 lbs all the time while cranking when not starting on battery.

To really give you the "right" answer I am going to need a little more information from you.

Did the car run when you gave him the car?
Why was the mechanic changing the fuel pump?

If the car ran when you gave him the car and then after he changed the fuel pump it wouldn't start I would have to say it has something to do with his removal and installation. Or the actual fuel pump itself. Was he installing a brand new or used pump?

He must not have gotten the wires back on the sender or in the wrong order causing the "new" fuel pump to not work thereby making your car not start.

Or atleast something along those lines. Like I said without a little more background I can't give you the exact answer.

Well good luck and I did my best with the information you provided.
Please feel free to give me a good rating,
Thanks and have a great day,
