fuel pump shut-off is only usually activated in accidents/rollovers etc. Several reasons for no start. The cheapest things first are changing out fuel pump relay or check the fuse whatever applies to rule that out. These fuses and relays are almost always in the engine compartment. Next check loose connections/grouds at the coil or coils. Have access to one of those portable obd-II scanners to see if any codes are present? Oh, yeah you could also check the fuel line filter if it is not contained in the fuel tank that is. So far I have only dealt with bad relays. I havent had to change out fuel pump yet. Hope this helps.

Take a look through the engine oil filler opening, is the camshaft turning while the engine cranks? I hope it's cheap and easy to fix.
