Hello, does this model year use a PATS ignition key with a red THEFT lamp in the instrument cluster and is it flashing when you turn the key to on? DId it die while driving or it was running fine, and wont restart after sitting? Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail?

Ok if you dont think you are getting fuel pressure to the rail and dont hear the fuel pump running. Inspect the 20 amp fuel pump fuse in the fuse panel by the battery and see if it is blown, if this is ok.check on the right side of the engine intake manifold fuel rail there is a small tire looking schraider valve.When you cycle the key to on you should have 30 psi of fuel pressure at the rail, depress the valve and see if you get a strong blast or no fuel at the rail. If no fuel, check the fuel pump inertia switch in the trunk for being popped. If it looks ok, need to check for power and ground at the inertia switch and at the pump. See if the car will run and stall after spraying some carb cleaner into the intake. If fuse is blown, most likely overheated fuel pump. If power and ground to pump and no pressure, failed fuel pump
