    SOUND LIKE THER IS NO FUEL PRESSURE, LISTEN AT THE FUEL FILLER CAP WHILE SOMEONE ELSE TURNS THE KEY FROM OFF TO ON, DO NOT CRANK IT OVER, THE PUMP SHOULD BUZZ FOR ABOUT 3 SECONDS AND THEN STOP. THIS HAPPENS EVERY TIME YOU TURN THE IGNITION FROM OFF TO ON. IF YOU CAN'T HEAR ANYTHING CHECK THE RELAY FOR THE FUEL PUMP OR THE CONNECTOR ON THE FUEL PUMP AT THE TANK.

    You could be out of fuel......If your fuel level sender is failing you will get a false level read and you may only need to put fuel in the vehicle because it is actually empty.
