Sounds like you are not getting power to your fuel pump, test both ends of the supply line with a meter, andhave someone else to help you by operating the key, because the system will cycle on for a few seconds and then turn off,,,then you need to turn the key off and back on to get it to operate again.

you might have to replace the fuel pump as the small plastic gears need fuel to lubricate them and with out fuel they tend to mess up bad.
