Remove power to all aftermarket components, if you know how to use a multi-meter connect to power source inside vehicle.. Drive normal, if voltage drops below 12v while driving, it is faulty alternator. If bat light comes on and voltage is above 12v the plug on the alternator might be correded and throwing faulty light, or bad ground in gauge cluster...

NOTE: Chk all relays and circuitry before pinpointing a fuel pump failure!! Running out of fuel may have burnt the fuel pump out. The fuel pump runs constantly when the engine is fired or cranked, it also utilizes fuel to keep the fuel pump from heating up. W/O fuel, the pump runs and heats up quickly and usually fails!!hopefully this helps!!

Since you said that ,".....IT STARTS IF I JUMP IT", that indicates that your batteries are not providing enough energy to turn the engine over quickly enough to get it started. You could have the batteries checked and go from there. It is also possible that the cable are not making sufficient contact with the battery cables. First, disconnect battery cables and clean up the cable ends with some kind of over the counter acid neutralizer or make your own with sodium bicarbonate and water. Brush the terminals and cable with a wire battery brush and reconnect cables to battery terminals. Be sure to connect positive (red) terminals first and then the negatives (black) to minimize sparking. If the engine still does not start, then, I would just replace both batteries with two new INTERSTATE batteries. They are a little pricey, but they make high quality batteries. This should fix your problem and your car should start. If you still need help, please contact me at FixYa and I will be glad to assist.

It probable is out of gas these GM vehicles are famous for bad fuel sending units.So if i were you i would replace the whole fuel pump assembly the sending unit comes with it,that you won't have to pull the fuel tank again because of fuel pressure problems later on.
