Sometimes, when you run an engine completely out of gas, to the point where it dies. There is sediment and debris that settles to the bottom of a gas tank, when you run it too low. Or in this case out of gas that debris will clog the fuel filter. The first thing to do though is continue trying to start it ( to get fuel back into the fuel rail and system ), If it does not crank over and start within 5 minutes ( NOT continuous cranking ) or so of trying then that's your problem. Replace the fuel filter and fire er' up.. Hope it helps.

    There is no reset button per say.. Replace the filter since you've determined there is no fuel getting through at all. Since there is a dummy light, also disconnect the battery after you replace the filter and that will reset it. If it was running fine before it ran out of gas, the fuel pump is more than likely not the problem but it's possible. Replace the filter first. Hope it helps.

    to get fuel to the rail after you change the filter like mikey says

    disconect batery then just cycly the key dont even turn it over

    cycle to run position 3 times but listen the the pump wait untill it stops between each cycle this will allow you to fuel the motor without burning the starter

    afwer you get fuel to bleed from rail cycle 1 more time then start your engine and you should be off to the gas station

2000 buick lesabre ran out of gas

Electric fuel pumps are known for burning out if you run them out of gas, pull the fuel line at the trottle-body, have someone turn the key on and see if you get fuel-flow, you may also check the fuel pump fuse and relay to make sure they are good.

Car wont start after running out of gas

Try a new fuel filter. you most likely sucked up some junk or maybe water from the tank when it ran out. Check fuel pump make sure it runs.
