Question about 1999 Cadillac Escalade
It ran out of gas and the theft light came on. Had the fuel pump checked and it was fine. The key ignition is not telling the fuel injectors to spray. What do I need to do. Could it be the electrical portion of my ignition? Please help me.
It may be an immobilizer issue.
You will need a diagnostic computer to pull up any fault codes.

First, obviously, put gas back in the tank.
Check the fuel pump fuse, (20 amp yellow fuse in the lower left corner of the group). If that is not blown, turn the key on and pound hard on the bottom of the fuel tank. The fuel lubricates the fuel pump, once it runs dry, the pump can lock up. Once the pump is immersed in fuel again, a sharp jolt will unstick it and let it pump up to pressure again. If it locks up for too long, the pump will burn out and need replaced.
We found this out by accident, got mad and pounded on the bottom of the tank and the pump jumped to life.

SOURCE: Fuel pump
Not a simple problem, the fuel pump has most likely burned up. The pump uses the gas to keep it cool, and will continue to run until it has built up the correct pressure.

Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.
