Hello. From the sound of it, you most likely overheated and burned out your fuel pump when your tank ran empty. You could try swapping your EFI relay with another one, but most likely your fuel pump will need to be replaced if it won't run after running the pump without fuel in the tank.

It was the vac valve .

Your iac valve was preventing your fuel pump from running after the tank ran dry?

Ok. Glad you got it sorted out.

Sorry, I meant vac valve. Phone decided to auto correct it to iac valve.
