Just bought the car was working fine up to about a week ago. It just shut off then it was running fine after that. Then on Friday I was coming home and it just shut off on me. I replaced the relay switch and fuel filter, but there is no gas going through to the engine the pump is only like three months old. I am running out of options I need some advice.

Do you

Check fuel pressure with a gauge it may be the wrong/bad pump. it also may be a security issue which try another key not a new one if you have one. check all fuses under hood as well. See links:
