Get in the car and turn the key to the "On" position without actually starting it. Have a friend with good hearing stand next to the gas cap and listen for an electrical whining noise from the gas tank area. The whine is the fuel pump coming on when you turn the key on. If you can hear the sound, then your fuel pump is turning on. If you can not hear anything, then there is a chance your fuel pump is not coming on at all.. you might want to check the fuses because you have a fuse that is for the fuel pump and for that matter check all your fuses and if that is not it then try the fuel filter because if it clogged it could possibly keep your truck from starting. you wanna try the least expensive thing first because if a little ole fuse will fix it then great.
