Hi! Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm Ron Z and I'll be helping you with your question today.
The P069E is a fairly straight forward code pointing to a problem with the Fuel Pump Control Module. The module is located under the vehicle, above the spare tire. Remove the spare to gain access (for an image location view, click here: http://goo.gl/hs6NYj). Carefully inspect the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires (inspect carefully, a rubbed-through wire is common). If the visual inspection checks ok, suspect a faulty FPCM.

Yes. The FPCM is directly responsible for fuel pump operation. When faulty, the fuel pump itself will not get the voltage needed to operate. This is the reason you cannot hear the fuel pump prime and run.
Unfortunately, no. A FPCM will need to be programmed after replacement. You "can" get one from a salvage yard, however, I really don't recommend it. These are common fail items on these vehicles. Getting a used one means a short life span, and you'll be back in this situation very quickly. You can replace the item yourself, but then like I say, it will need to be programmed. The best option is the Dealer, however, these days, many local shops also have the correct scan-tool to program it.
