Probably a bad "fuel pump oil pressure switch." They keep the fuel pump from running unless the engine is running. When you turn the key to 'on' the pump primes the line with a few seconds worth of fuel. Unless the oil pressure switch detects the engine is running, the fuel.pump won't keep running. The part is cheap and readily available. Good luck.
