I'd 1st suggest checking that the fuel pump is running

if you remove the fuel filler cap and then flick the ignition on and you should hear the pump 'buzz' for a second or two

if its runs OK then I'd suggest plumbing in a pressure gauge to the fuel rail and check that your're getting full pressure with a running engine

and if thats OK then check the main battery connections are on tight and have no corrosion and check the main power fuses aren't cracked or corroded
