No start fuel issues

So after comming home from the gym I noticed I had about 12 miles left to run on , on the way to the gas station I wanted to fill at a ethonal free station two miles away , after driving a mile the car suddenly shut off but the power was still on . Tried to start the car but still didn't fire long story short I got gas filled it still didn't turn over or fire. Car had been towed home .When ever I turn into position two no power to fuel pump , no noise nothing. Checked fuses in the glove and under the hood and all checked out. At this point I'm thinking it's the fuel pump , replaced fuel pump and still no power to the pump or noises I'm thinking it's the fuel pump relay any insight would help

Check this out - http://www.pelicanparts.com/BMW/tech...mp_Testing.htm

Do it in reverse order though, check the relay first. The fuel relay is the same as some others (light green) so you can swap another one in to see if the fuel pump starts to prime

So does the motor turn as in crank when you try to start?

If it is turning over but not firing do some research youself on the EKP MODUL near the battery in US cars.
