Unhappy

I have a 98 Z28 Camaro.

I ran out of gas about 100 yards from the gas station! The car stalled out. I put gas in it and now it will not start. I had to have it towed home. I was told by the tow guy that there is a reset somewhere on my car. I can't seem to find it. Can someone help me?

i dont know of a low fuel reset, either you blew the pump fuse or more likly burnt the pump up. never run electric pumps below 1/4 tank.

I did the same thing in my 91 RS and it burned up the pump because it had no liquid to cool it down and it got too hot. Had too replace the pump.

Have someone turn the key to the run postion while you listen by the fuel tank. If you hear a buzzing sound than the pump is working and something else is at fault.

Sometimes you can get a failing pump to work by hitting the tank with your fist while someone cranks the engine.
