The fuel pump won't trip a code in your year model. The fuel pump will time out after 3 seconds without the engine running. You could try inducing a little fuel into the intake and try cranking the engine to see if it runs. The best way to diag the fuel pump is to hook up a gauge.

Same thing happened to me on a 2002 Thunderbird it was the fuel pump fuse. In my can fuse #17
