fuel pump not running, quit overnight. Is there some other reason the pump won't come on?

Couple of things to try, check the fuses for anything blown. Smack the fuel tank with a rubber mallet a few times, possibly the fuel pump may turn on, this is a temp fix, usually the pump will fail again, in the right rear panel, check the inertia switch, make sure it isn't tripped, if so reset. If not tripped you can unplug it and apply 12 volts top see if you hear the pump. The fuel pump relay is located in the ccrm, black box under the radiator sight shield. Usually not replaceable if bad unless you're very good with solder on boards and can even get the single part.
