A.Prime a starting fluid or carburetor cleaner through the throttle body to help the combustion to ignite. If the engine starts, it confirms the fuel pump is bad.

B.Or try giving the bottom of the fuel tank a few whacks with a fllat piece of wood or a rubber mallet while another tries to start the engine. You have a 50/50 shot at getting the pump going again and the vehicle starting. if it starts as a result of the whack then it confirms the bad fuel pump.
