    My advice is that you look into the Injector resistor box which has multiple relays that need to be engaged in order for your pump to turn on. Another name is the "Twinkie Box" and its about 2x4 inches or so. not sure about your car but its probably on the driverside next to the strut tower aluminum box with 6 or so wires coming out of it. maybe try to reconnect it or just check connections. if you got the money you might just want to replace it.
    hope this helps

    im just saying, most people say dont run down to e because it will pick up sediments true but the real reason is so you dont over heat your pump the gasoline is petroleum based so not only does it lube but it also is a cooling agent wich helps keep it cool this is a common problem in summer we have had 4 in our shop in the last month for this.......but hell i run mine down to e im just saying
