Can you hear the fuel pump running when the key is in the on position?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
no
Expert:  Virtual Wrench (L J) replied 7 years ago.
Could you before?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
im not sure the car was running great until it ran out of gas. the fuse is not blown, and there is no power at the fuel pump.
Expert:  Virtual Wrench (L J) replied 7 years ago.

Make SURE the fuse is good in the fuse panel inside the car, then look under the hood in that fuse block and test (i am presuming you are using a testlight to check these fuses) Look for a fuse I/P BATT (30amp) and test it.

There is no "reset" switch on this car.

Have you been using a testlight fuse tester?

Reply to Virtual Wrench's Post: no, multimeter
Expert:  Virtual Wrench (L J) replied 7 years ago.
Thats fine.....you will need to check for power at the connecter on the fuel pump. If there is power there the fuel pump is bad. If there is no power check the fuel pump relay.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
thank you
Expert:  Virtual Wrench (L J) replied 7 years ago.

The relay is located in the underhood fuse panel.
