guitarhound is on a distinguished road
Happened to me earlier this week...Check the relays by the air box that are mounted on the wheel well on the drivers side under a black plastic cover..I switched mine back and forth and it started..Anothere time, I had to tap on the fuel pump under the car in front of the rear drivers side wheel well...Either had junk in it, was old and overheated when the gas ran out etc....
Both worked for me..Hope this helps
