Question about 2001 Ford Explorer
Hi first off, have you checked your fuses, this could be an obviuse thing but most people dont, relays in the fuse box? find the relay for the fuel pump and tap it it might be the internal switch has stuck and might need replacing, also, when you turn your ignition on, do you hear a whirling sound from the rear of the vehicle? if you turn your ignition on but only to the first position not cranking, keep listening to see if you can hear the pump cut in, this will last a few seconds if not check the first bits that i said, then you will have to get the fuel pump in the tank tested, you could go under the hood( i think thats what you say in the USA) locate the fuel line, remove the line to the supply put a bucket under it or somthing to catch the fuel if it works, turn ignition to the first possition if you do not get any fuel out, then revert back to the above....hope this helps

Tips for a great answer:
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM
