Help please

Ok... so my supra is goin haywire, and my dad can't figure out what's up.

Here's what's going on:

-Engine cranks, but no fuel, fuel pump replaced, still no fuel

-Dad then checks something he called "diagnosis box" or a fusebox, and there's no power coming out... no fuses blown, and he changed a bad relay-still no power to fuel pump, lights, blinkers, everything electronic but the fuel pump works

-Drove fine the night before it wouldn't start, no problems, he parked it outside one night, and here we are, and the car needs to be inspected by the end of the month...

Edit: it's a 1990, so i'm thinking it's just stuff getting old.. but i dunno why it couldn't wait till after the inspection to happen..

Yeah because their trucks are trash the skyline is a kit car. DATSUN never existed and INFINITI is a german brand.

Nissan has a very solid lineup and they have something to take care of every person's needs. TOYOTA has what?

lol, i just don't like much that they have.. the skyline is cool, but not my style... i love the 280z, and almost bought a 300z.. but the supra had 4 seats..
