SOURCE: car won't start
Your fuel pump is sticking and not pumping, this is common if you run the fuel down to less than 1/4 full, the fuel pump needs the gas to cool itself, below a 1/4 tank the pump is not getting cooled and after repeatably running low on fuel it overheats and fails. Running the car near 1/2 tank extends the pump life to many years more than running tank below a 1/4 full..

Your next step in diagnosis your problem should be to check for spark, you'll have to use a spark tester for this, simply removing a spark plug and looking at it WILL NOT WORK, a spark tester looks similar to a spark plug but it has about a 3/4" gap.
Another thing you should check is the voltage of the battery with a multimeter while cranking the engine, if it drops below 9.6v your computer will turn off and your injectors wont fire and neither will your plugs.
If you don't have a multimeter just try jump starting the vehicle.
Hope this helps

you don't hit the alternator, you hit the starter to help is shake free because it is already going bad. take battery and alternator to parts store and have both tested. check the wires at the starter and make sure they are on SECURELY. very important SOLID CONTACT is occurring. do your lights turn on? check starter relay if the eclipse is equipped with one.
