: Sounds like you have
attacked the problem pretty well. Check the fuses. Do a
"pin" check for power and ground to the ECM. When you
replaced the ECM, did you use a new prom? If not, you
could have a faulty prom. Check fuel pressure and using
a Noid light check the pulse at the injectors. For your
information, the injectors will have 12-volts and the
computer momentarily grounds them to open the injector.
Your problems may be caused by a faulty ignition switch or starter solenoid.
Intermittent electrical problems are difficult to trace. We would suggest first checking the ignition switch and next the neutral safety switch
You are close to the right track but check the fuel pressure during the no start condition as you may have a faulty fuel pump. You also could have a vehicle speed sensor problem

If you tried to start it after it was already empty you might have air in your injector lines. there is a little valve, much like a tire valve stem, with a similar cap located near the drivers side rear of the engine compartment. its a bit hard to get to, but you will need to push it in with a coat hanger or simething similar and it will purge the air. Then try to start. You may have to repeat this a couple times but it will work.
