It might not work but if you can get under there and pound on the fuel tank, it may allow the commutators within the pump to work and your pump could be fine for a while, or it could go out again. Just one of those things.
Thanks, I'll check it out. This is a "replaced" car (love my 2013!!!) that I'm just trying to get ready to sell and I have limited time durations when I can work on it. Real bummer I finally had the time to finish the timing belt and then this happens but I do know that "lack of use" can be just as detrimental as "too much use".
