My car ran out of fuel on the Hwy. I tried to reset
the fuel switch in rear. Still nothing. Please help.
Chances are very high that the fuel pump fried when it ran out of fuel, sometimes you can get it to start and run by banging on the bottom of the fuel tank while someone is cranking it. If it does start then get it to where you are going to fix it cause it most likely won't start again. Remember to change the fuel filter and relay when you change out the fuel pump. HTH
Running out of fuel in today's fuel injected cars is not a good thing to do. The reset switch is activated in case of accident, not running out of fuel. It may eventually start and it may not. If it doesn't start then my friend "tennisshoes" is likely correct in that you fried the fuel pump. Are you sure you ran out of fuel? Something else could cause it to stop running also.
Thank you all so much. I appreciate your help
