Hi, my name is ***** ***** you for your question.
Sorry for long delay.
If you had a fuel system problem it would not restart after sitting for 30 minutes.
This sounds like a electrical issue with engine ECM power.
Start by cleaning all battery and starter power and grounds.
Look for any inline fuse holders and check and repair any corroded fuse holders.
If that does not fix you will need to get hooked up to scan tool to pull any codes.
Thanks in advance for leaving a positive rating. If you happen to need more help, this question will stay open for weeks.

The code reads low fuel pressure I thought it could be the pickup tube or clogged fuel line or bro***** *****ne

Thanks for info.
What I would do then is run a test line from fuel pump directly into tank,,,,test drive if okay you know where problem is.
It could be a filter head ,,line,,or pick up but you want to verify before just changing parts.
You could just stick test hose in fuel tank opening with rags around to catch any fuel.
Make sure line stays above bottom of tank by at least 6"
Let me know if you have any trouble.
