Wont crank

2002 Porsche Boxster 986. Started getting a fuel smell through the vents. The next day it will not start. I have a ignition switch coming and it will be replaced end of the week. I was going to check the fuse in the immobilizer, check the relay, check voltage going to the fuel pump before I order one. Any other ideas Im missing. The fuel smell from the vents is while in motion not a smell just from sitting around.

Only codes are P1128 and P1130

Codes indicate that one or more of the following is happening:

-Incorrect MAF signal
-fuel pressure too high
-injector leaking
-EVAP cannister purge valve stuck open

I will have to look those up. How do you check them. And would it make it not crank as well?
