ok, I was just getting clarification. If there is no fuel to the injectors then the fuel pump more than likely has failed. you can turn the key to the on position and hear the fuel pump relay click but it doesn't sound like the fuel pump is working. If you turn the key on the passenger side of the fuel rail is a test port. you can use a pen and push down the valve and fuel should shoot out of here. If it doesn't then the fuel pump isn't working correctly. If that is the case the fuel pump probably failed and will need to be replaced.
