There may be a fuel pump inertia switch that tripped. Turn off all accessories, and cycle the key to the run position. You should be able to hear the pump run for a second.

I just went out and tried that, no sounds of fuel pump. Now what do I do?


Start checking fuses, and get under there and check the circuit for voltage at the pump when you first turn the key on. It should energize for about a second.
