Thanks, I have reassembled the car. It definitely appears fuel pump is not working (no noise, no fuel when disconnected from rail). Fuse is good. Button is not popped up on reset switch.

Can you tell me roughly where the fuel sensor is? I'm wondering if the engine being jacked up/down during the timing belt change may have pulled a connector.

Thanks,
BB

fuel sensor is the little black box at the end of the fuel rail. I doubt it was damaged.

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".
