If you are not getting fuel to the engine, you need to check to see if there is power to the fuel pump. If there is, then the pump is most likely bad.

You need to check for fuel pressure. Even though the pump is running, you may not be getting enough fuel pressure to run the engine. Check that first to make sure it is within spec. If it is, then you need to check to make sure the injectors are getting power.

Ok thank you I will try that. And I was wondering if I had a fuel pump restart button. I tried looking for the relay in the glovebox and under the hood and above the fuel tank and the fuse box cant find it. Again thank you

There isn't a restart. Check pressure and let me know what you find.
