Sounds like maybe your fuel pump went out. Do you have two tanks? Maybe the sound you heard was a fuse blowing? Begin checking the obvious first.

I heard a sound thinking it was my ac vent ..It was me that changed the fuel to main - i cut off my own fuel..now I know my fuel option is by the ac unit.
