How to reset fuel pump on 2005 bmw 3x

I cant thin of a good reason to perform a "fuel pump reset" if there were such a thing?
Understand, the fuel pump is simply a tiny motor in the fuel tank that pushes gasoline out for the engine to use. It has no memory, no settings, or adjustments (for the most part, some newer ones do regulate w a duty cycle, but the pump is still a simple motor).
If you are having problems with starting or acceleration and it may be fuel related, the best thing you can do is get it scanned and or tested mechanically by a technician with access to an enhanced BMW scantool.
As to the fuel pump reset, there really isnt such a thing...fuel pump;s always work with the kjey and engine rpm UNLESS something breaks, or the alarm/theft system disables fuel. Thjere are no fault codes that turn off the fuel pump on your vehicle, so no memory to erase to ruen it back on or change its operation.

My van turns over but will not crank

HUH??? I assume you mean to say that it "cranks, but will not start".
There are MANY things that can cause this. The first thing that SHOULD be done is to scan the engine control module for possible fault codes. This can greatly speed up the diagnosis process.

Other than that, the only thing I can tell you is that an internal combution piston engine needs four basic things (components) to make it run:
(1) Air-fuel ratio
(2) Volumetric efficiency
(3) Compression
(4) Ignition

If your engine will not start and run, it is because one of these components of basic engine operation is missing.

To get the engine running again, you must:
(A) Determine which of the basic components is/are missing
(B) Perform diagnosis relative to the missing component(s) to identify the CAUSE of it/them being missing
(C) Perform repairs necessary to correct the CAUSE of the problem.

Diesels only need basically 3 things to run.
1. Air
2. Fuel
3. Compression.
If one of the 3 is lacking performance would suffer or completely keep the truck from starting.
