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.

SOURCE: My bmw 320i e90 2005 only cranks but won't start

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

My bmw x5 2002 will not start. well it starts then stops about 15 r so seconds later. it has done this before but it started back up. at this time i was low on gas, i then filled up and it didnt happen...

We had a 2001 X5. When the Fuel gauge hit 1/4, it was time to fill up or you were stranded. I think it's the pump if it is below 1/4. We also received error engine codes when this happened. All you have to do after you refuel is to reset the code (drive with the code for awhile, it will reset after a few miles) and you're alright. The pump is somewhat expensive to change out if you take it to the dealer.

My BMW ran out of fuel and won't start after fuel has been added

Have someone hit the fuel tank with a hammer while trying to start the engine. If it starts it's possible it picked up some trash. It may keep working if it starts but the pump will have damage and will need replacement. Although it will most likely start run for a few then die. If so just replace the fuel pump.
