SOURCE: starts but wont stay running
Check your gas filter. When you ran out of gas, you got any rust in your lines and filters. Change the inline filter and use an air compressor and blow the line TOWARDS THE TANK. Take the gas cap off first. There is also a filter in your tank.By blowing the line you may unstop that filter.

fuel pump is burned out from running out of gas, the pump is cooled by the gas it sits in inside the fuel tank, when you run low on fuel or out of gas you over heat the pump severely and the bearings in the pump seize up, have seen it dozens of times in my 30 years of dealer work.

SOURCE: ran out of fuel
The reason is: When you completely run out of gas your gas lines are completely drained of fuel. When you refuel the car the fuel lines are still empty, and you will need to crank the car until the fuel pump has filled the gas lines and established the correct fuel pressure.I also suggest you turn key to on position to let electrical system run fuel pump and when ready to crank over engine have battery hooked up to a battery charger this should do it!!

SOURCE: i ran out of gas
The fuel pump in this car is electric and is inside the fuel tank, it uses the fuel it sets in for lubrication and for cooling, when u run out of gas this causes the tiny electric pump to severly overheat and many times it ruins the pump, and that is what has happened here, u will need to pull the gas tank and replace the fuel pump. also replace the fuel filter.

With most factory installed security anti theft systems, putting anything in the ignition slot other than the proper key will disable the fuel system.
To get your car running again there is likely a protocol you may be able to follow over the phone with assistance of your dealer as long as you can provide them with the necessary credentials to prove your ownership. They should be able to help you get your car running again.
