Engine start just spinning

When starting the engine on the 850 for some reason the engine spins when turning over. It sounds like a dry spin like the car has jumped time. Replaced all fuel pumps and fuel filters. Dry rotted lines were replaced. Seems like not getting fuel. Seems electrical becuase when I unplug battery for about five minutes car seems to reset and turns over. WTF. Any help will be aprecieated.

Pull out your coil pack and spark plug and have a buddy try to start it and visually confirm spark. If their is spark, repeat with an injector.

Scan the OBD system for diagnostic trouble codes.
