The driving lights turn on with the appropriate turn signal, so hit the turn signals and see if they kick on, if not, they could just be disconnected... or burned out.
I don't think it's a good idea topull the cap. The fuel system has a return to the tank so it's supposed to be pressurized... theoretically.
The suspension can be pressurized manually assuming it doesn't leak... if it does, just rebuild the shocks/forks and then fill it manually until you can solve whatever issue you have.
Next, there's a small screen in the fuel line before the pump, and a big screen in the tank, check both to make sure they are clean. Check all 4 injectors to make sure they are hooked up, and check the ECU under the trunk to see if there are any lights on indicating a problem. Also, check the air cleaner/filter....
And... if you haven't already, I highly recomend flushing/bleeding all the hydrolics (including the clutch) and clean the little return hole for the clutch (I don't know where it is, but someone else who does should be around soon), and of course basic oil/coolant flushes as well.
Once all that is done, if it still has no nuts, at least you've rulled some stuff out....
