Exclamation Mercedes 1989 190E won't start

My Mercedes 190E stalled couple times while stopped at a traffic light. After getting home and trying to start next morning, it did not start. I noticed that the fuel pump was not turning on, I checked and found that there was not voltage at the pump. I replaced the fuel relay and now I hear the pump turning on, however the car still doesn't start. While troubleshooting, I disconected the fuel line that goes to the injectors but I put it back and I don't see any leaks... Any ideas on what to try?

pull the plugs and see if you are getting gas in the cylinders

well that would leave compression and timing, a compression test isnt that hard but timing is more likely. Also do you know that the plugs are sparking, you can check this by holding them against the engine to ground them and crank it a few times. But be careful, they can zap you pretty good.
