It may be the useless anti-theft system at work, it cuts off the fuel pump. To reset it, you need to do the following:

Turn the key to the "ON" position, all the warning lights will come on. You want to see the flashing "theft system" light. If this is happening you are in good shape. Wait for ten minutes, the light will turn solid and then go away. Now turn the key back to "OFF" and start the car. The dealer changed my starter coil 3 times before I looked for an alternative solution. Good luck with your "Bu".
