If it was ran dry then it is likely that the fuel pump fried itself due to no fuel, as the pump uses the fuel as a coolant so you never run a vehicle that has an electric fuel pump under a 1/4 tank. Have someone turn the key to the on position while you listen at fuel filler as try to hear a slight buzzing sound for just a few seconds then it stops, if you hear it then the fuel pump is running, if not then you can try"shocking" the pump by banging on the fuel tank while someone cranks the engine, if it does start don't shut it off, drive it to where you are going to have the fuel pump replaced because it most likely won't start again.

s a fuel shut off relay under the hood. There is a small black box just above the fuse box. The relay on the bottom left is the shut off relay.

I have the same.exact problem. I ran my fuel pump of gas then put gas in it then it starts for like 15 seconds and.died out and wouldn't start again. ND I JUST PUT A BRAND NEW FUEL PUMP IN LAST NIGHT still not getting any sound.from it

it could be an asd relay which is automatic shut down relay it kills power to fuel pump and distribuator its on the drivers side on the firewall just below the hood line there should be 3 in a row if it bad you may not have had a bad fuel pump
