I'm assuming that the vehicle stalled and now will crank but not start. There's a fuel pump cutoff switch listed for your vehicle on Rockauto.com. Probably when you panic stopped the switch activated and shut down the fuel pump. You can probably reset it .I'm not sure where it will be located in the vehicle but I'd look in the trunk first. Hope that helps! Jim

I'm not sure exactly where the switch would be located. They're usually in the rear of the car. Hope that helps! Jim
