Default 1999 deville ran out of gas shut down engine..will not restart

Hello all,

i own a 99 deville which runs perfectly fine for many many days. The car ran out of gas this morning,it was on empty when i drove it home last night. The car started this morning but then after driving it for a block it was out of gas and barely moved then I stopped the car. Went to put in 4-5 gallons of gas and it will crank perfectly but will not start.

Can any one tell me if there is a shut off or safety reset feature on the 1999 deville ?

Any advice on how to do this.

thank you in advanced

GM does not use "Fuel Pump Reset" switches. Check for codes and fuel pressure.

That last bit of fuel may have had dirt, rust, goo, etc... check fuel filter .

Actually the fuel pump was burned out and when they took it out part of it was melted. Can a low in gas condition cause it to burn out and perhaps melt?
