1999-2003 Reset Button location

This is one possibility

The switch is located inside the jack storage compartment found at the right rear corner of the vehicle. Remove the cover and it is behind the thin "foam" covering inside the compartment towards the rear of the vehicle.

It has a red button on the top of the switch, make sure the button is fully depressed. If it is and the vehicle still won't start check fuel pressure at the rail (there is a port on the rail which is under the hood on the engine) with a fuel pressure gauge. If the pressure is ok (about 30 psi) the problem is most likely not fuel system related.
The emergency fuel pump cutoff switch, also known as the inertia switch, cuts power to the fuel pump in the event of an accident - even a slow speed one - any sudden "jolt" can trigger the switch.

There is nothing even coming out of rail. Checked reset, checked fuses, and relay all is good.

Could the pump just went out?

Its very possible that your pump just went bad.
Disconnect your incoming fuel line to your throttle body and while you stand outside watching under the hood have a friend turn the ignition so that it engages only power, this will engage your pump. If your pump isnt working, nothing will come out of the fuel line. You can also have another individiual crawl under the gas tank and listen for the pump to turn on. Kill 2 birds with one stone for the fuel pump check up
the fuel pump sounds like a electric motor

good luck
