First, determine if the fuel pump is running (under the truck, below the drivers seat, on the inside of the frame rail, the size of a soda can). You should be able to hear it running or feel it with your hand. For safety reasons, the pump will only run for @ 15sec after the key is turned to the ON position (you can just go Off & On again to restart).
Next, if it's Not running check the "Inertia Switch" (pass kick panel) to see if it's tripped or come unplugged. Also look in the fuse box for a blown fuse.
Then, if it IS running how much fuel do you have in the tank? At @ 1/4 tank there is a common failure of the pick up that might cause you to suck air. Also you could have a bad sending unit and are actually empty...
Also, do you get a WTS light when you first roll-on the key?
