the dash around the radio needs to be pulled off. Be carefull doing this so the plastic clips are not damaged. There may be screws as well, that you can see from the underside ( looking from the floor to the roof)

Sending unit died. can be expencive to replace since most sending units are integral with the fuel pump now. lots of labor too. Better to use the trip odometer till you can afford a day without your car and a $600.00 +labor repair bill.

Are you using the original key?
Sometimes the valet key, which is the key that comes new in the glove compartment, can have issues with its 'chip' as it sits in a generic plastic housing, while the original 'chip' is fused into the key.
Try using both keys if you have them, see if 1 way works, flip it 180 degrees and try the other way.
If you do not have the original key, you may need to get your key code reprogrammed, which is a dealer only type job.
An indicator that the key is the issue, is if the anti-theft light (red light that looks like a car with a key in it) will flas or stay on, while you are trying to start it. This light should turn off once you put the key in the ignition.

Sorry that you're having trouble. There are a few things that could cause something like what you describe. The first possibility is broken timing belt. You'll know this is the case if the engine sounds very fast and quiet when you try to start it. The second possibility is fuel pump problem, Check the fuel pump relay and fuse. Listen for the fuel pump. Does it come on when you turn the key in the ignition. And another possibility is a problem with the ignition coil pack or ignition control. Check for spark, and check for any loose wires/wire harness connectors. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.
