...well you run it low (fuel lite on) for more than a little while, the fuel pump burns out because the coooing fuel will not be there to cool your pump...replace.

you could check for continuity at the pump, but you will get zero ohms...kaput....if you've got any resistance at the pump look at the fuse~ easier to replace a fuse, but I hardly think the pump would blow the fuse~

Did you happen to check the battery? Strange things do happen.

Since this is a brand new vehicle have it towed to your local Chevrolet Dealer. It's still under warranty. They'll pay for the tow and, if need be, provide a loaner car. Just don't tell them about the low fuel light coming on. If the fuel pump did burn out the Chevy Dealer may try to use that information to weasel out of warranty coverage. I've run out of gas twice with cars that had electric fuel pumps. Didn't hurt anything. It does happen though. So keep that to yourself. HTH. -Jim
