Question about Ford Explorer
So the pump is working, have you checked for spark at one of the spark plug wire ends? Fuel and spark is what it needs. Or more precisely, a fuel/air mixture, compression, and then a well timed spark. If no spark, it's the ignition system. If it is getting gas and spark, it may be the injector circuit, but check the actual fuel pressure first.

i was once pulling a trailer with a ranger when it suddenly lost power and the engine died. turns out the problem was with the fuel shut off inertia switch. the switch is supposed to activate in case of accident. on my model the inertia switch is located in the passenger side under the glove box. dont know where yours is located. once you find it, just push the button and see if it resets. good luck.

before the fuel are coming to the injectors block is entered in a litle box like valve, is coming there with a ruber tube open it there and let your wife to crank and see if fuel is coming right up there. if yes se your spark plugs and spark wires because there are not working or probably a high tension coil isn giving too much current to spare in sparc plugs. if no so check yor fuel pump and his way from the tank in the point you are looking for.

I had this same issue. There is an inertia switch located below glove box. Mine went bad. Here is what I wrote to another person with the similar problem:
I have a 2005 Ranger Edge. I had the same problem. I did two things. First I replaced the fuel pump and it worked again for about 2 months. Then it stopped working again so I replaced the inertia switch with a new one from the Ford Dealership. It worked again for about a month. Than it stopped again, so I replaced the wiring that goes from the inertia switch to the main box on the bottom right passenger side. I also put the inertia switch inside the casing on the lower right so it couldn't be kicked. It has been working for 2 weeks now. I hope nothing else happens.
On another note, I had another electrical problem. My speedometer cluster stopped working and my mechanic found loose wires rubbing against metal on the inside. I think the electrical components on these Ford Rangers are just cheaply made. That is the only thing to check for you now. If it isn't the fuel pump or the inertia switch, just check all the wiring from fuel pump to inertia switch to make sure it is all done correctly. Also check all fuses for fuel pump/inertia switches.
Sometimes I say I and mean a mechanic, I am not a car expert, but would like to be.
