I've changed fuel pump and fuel filter and she trying to turn over but no dice. I'd notice too, that when I attempt to start the car all the interior lights go out. I've changed fuel pump relay fuse and fuel pump fuse also.

First & most obvious is;
Have you got any gas in it.?
Second, are you actually getting a spark at the plugs.
Test this with a spare spark plug or a specialist visual spark-tester plug, at the end of any of the distributor/plug leads.
If you're getting a spark & you've got gas, it's probably a failed fuel pump (fuse, wiring, unit), fuel filter or filter in side the carburettor that's blocked.
If it's injection, check the fuse & wiring for the injection system as well as the filter.
Best of luck.
is it fuel injected if it is one of the fuel injecter pods is probally tore up or ur comourter is bad bc i had a 1993 chevy blazer tht did the same thing and i got a new injecter pod and new computer and it ran fine
local libraries usually have haynes manuals to tell you what's where.my fuel pump is attached under the back seat on top of the tank.you should never pump the gas starting fuel injected cars since they came out.however,if your fuel pump was bad,it probably would not start.try air filter and gas filter.if those are fine try vacuum lines.
this may sound stupid but the next time this happens take some ice cold water and pour it over the injection pump.if it starts what you nhave is a bad pump.this is usually caused by someone washing off a hot motor and what happens is it changes the clearances just enough that hot, the pump cannot reach min injection pressure. the injection pump is located in the center front of the motor
i actually have a 1985 302 efi... there are 2 pumps one one the rail right under drivers door and one in the tank.. there are also two filters... one just behind the pump one the rail.. its actually inside a canister that you open with a oil filter wrench then it has a paper element inside..then there is a inline filter that is actually part of the high pressure line the hose is about 3 feet long and runs from your front pump up to the fuel rail agaist the firewall...this one is really hard to find (Buy) good luck wish i hade a carb
Same problem with my 85 F-150 5.0 EFI---turned out that the fuel pump relay under the hood was teriffically corroded on the inside (I opened up the relay to look inside). When I checked the voltage at the fuel pump it would show 3.5-6 volts instead of 12 volts.
I was thinking fuel blockage or perhaps failure of the in-tank pumps. Sometimes the truck would start and run, othertimes it would neither start nor run. Typically, if running it would stay running until turned off (where the relay had to break).
Changing the green fuel pump relay fixed the problem--12 volts now at the pump and no reoccurance.
If the only evidence of trying to start was when u used starter fluid, it's probably a fuel issue. After attempting to start several times, pull a plug and check for gas/wet plug. If there is no evidence of gas reaching the plug, it's probably the fuel pump. Change the fuel filter too.
