Have you checked the fuel shutoff switch? it's a safety device to shut off fuel flow in case of severe front or rear impacts, but sometimes it just trips for unknown reasons. It's behind the liner on the driver's side of the trunk. Look at the round opening on top: if you can see that the red button is setting level with top of the switch it has been activated. To reset it, push the button back down until it "clicks" into place (usually 1/2 inch down or so). If it has been activated and the button will not reset the unit must be replaced, and it is a dealer only item.
Try some starting fluid, if it wants to run then you need to check the Inertia switch. The location of this switch is behind the passengers foot kickpanel.
There is a Reset button that you push and it will reconnect the fuelpump. Please rate my info. You can try the Reset without testing with starting fluid but the fluid verifies fuel starvation as the problem.
Sounds like a bad battery. A number of chain auto parts stores will check it and your charging system free. Before that, if your battery has removable caps, check the water level, if it's down, fill to the bottom of the fill rings and charge the battery, if you have a battery hydrometer, all the cells should have about the same charge level, if one or more show a lot lower than the others, battery is probably bad. Hope this helps.
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.
Have you tried using a CD player cleaner in the unit? Try a "wet" system. One that uses a cd with tiny brushes on it that you pour a little (included) cleaner on it and run it in the player as if it were any other cd. They have worked miracles for me in the past. Also, although I'm not sure about Kenwoods, I have had a number of aftermarket head units and they have all had. "Reset" button on them. I usually find them on the front located behind the faceplate. Simply remove cd's, press and hold button (with ballpoint pen) for 10- 20 seconds. This will require you to reset time, memory etc... Good luck!
If you have steering wheel controls you can reset it by getting to the oil life indicator (mine is on the left side lower button menu when wheel is facing forward). Then press the arrow button for a few seconds to reset it. If you don't have steering wheel controls you can reset it by turning key to on position but don't start vehicle. Press gas pedal all the way to the floor three times (some say 6 times). Turn key off. Oil life should be reset went you start engine next time. I hope this works for you.
Turn off ignition. Press and hold the
trip reset button, then turn the ignition on (don't start the
engine), within 5 sec the SIA status will be displayed. Release the
reset button. Press and hold the trip reset button for 5 sec, "rst"
will be displayed. Release and re-press trip reset button.
DISCONNECT YOUR BATTERY AND RECONNECT, THIS SHOULD RESET THE BRAIN.
ALSO...WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, LISTEN TO HEAR IF YOU CAN HEAR THE FUEL PUMP COME ON...IF NOT, GUESS WHAT? HOPEFULLY NOT!... BUT,YOU MAY NEED TO REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP, IF YOU CAN'T HEAR IT WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, AFTER YOU'VE RESET THE BATTERY!
if u unplug your battery for acouple hours it will reset youre ecu/cpu. (everything) does it turn over? or absolutly nothing? if nothing sometimes ur battery loses so many electrolytes it can't retain a charge therefore jumping won't help. new battery first step! local junkyards probably have a good battery for $20. Let me know if this helps.
