Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've had my 1997 Ford Taurus sitting for
around 6 months now without starting than
finally got enough cash to Repair my
problems so I've replaced the bearings in the
front wheels tie rod end and altanater
battery cables and believe that's about it so
before i started all Repairs i charged up
battery and started it only for a few minutes
started without any problems and now after
all I've done it's cranking but won't start I've
went to the trunk and tried to push the reset
button on fuel pump but it seems like the
button is tuck down or i guess it's not raised
up not sure if it's supposed to be i can't
remember is there any thing else i could try
