Replace the fuel filter and then look at the fuel pump again. It might be starting to fail. If you have close to 120K or more, it's time to replace.

There might be enough power in batter for dash lights, but evidently not enough to turn the engine. Try getting a jump start, let the car run awhile to see if the battery will charge. Check ignition. alternator, starter. Sometime it occur due to bad connection. Take your car to certified European Auto Tech for right diagnosis. Call 972- 351-8964
