Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that will cause a no start condition. You could be missing spark, fuel or both. It's going to take some testing to determine exactly what the cause is. There isn't anything that can be reset on a fuel pump.

The first steps in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool or code reader to see if the engine controller communicates and if so what fault codes are set, and to see if the fuel pump runs when the key is turned on. Have either of these been done?
