Sounds like your computer (PCM) isn't running. Never gonna start if it's not. Look at the fuses first. If #30 then unplug your Fuel Heater in the bottom of the filter bowl before you replace it. If #45 look under the column cover to see if the OD switch wires are shorted.

Check them ALL carefully though, I'd bet you find something blown...
